We thoroughly enjoyed our half-day trip with Angelo. We coasted along the rocky shores basking in the autumn light and cool weather. The bald eagles were no longer on their nests; but the view is awesome never-the-less. Angelo set an easy pace and had a great deal to talk about; but also left us to our own thoughts at times....

This was my second kayaking trip, very impressive. We were a group of 8 persons, everyone was excited. Justin and the other guy were very friendly. We loved their black dog, the chai-chocoloate tea and the home-made bread. The weather was not that good, but kayaking was fun and exciting. Some of us were racing. Justin's guys were enthusiastic and... More

It was a perfect adventure right from start to finish! When I called a month before even getting to Nova Scotia they were very helpful and friendly. The day I arrived for my adventure they were amazing! They were very welcoming and sat and chatted with me while the kayaks were being prepared. They took to the time to chat... More

This was our first kayaking trip, and we're not all that athletic. Angelo and Justin were great hosts, and we felt completely safe and well taken care of. The day was cloudy when we began, but turned into sheets of pouring rain (typical Nova Scotia summer, we heard). We were drenched! Justin led us and our four fellow kayakers to... More

My daughter and I did the 3 hour sea kayaking with Justin and had an amazing time. Justin was a terrific and knowledgeable teacher and guide. I'm not the most coordinated person and I was able to learn and kayak and enjoy the amazing scenery. I highly recommend this to anyone who's thinking about trying it - it's like hiking... More

My two friends and I visited North River Kayak on a whirlwind tour of the Cabot Trail over Labor Day weekend. We could not have asked for a better half-day sea kayaking adventure. First, Angelo runs a great operation. He personifies the experience. Laid back, friendly, talented individual. We arrived to the sound of him tickling the strings of his... More

Thank you to Justin and Angelo for a beautiful morning on St. Anne's Bay on Cape Breton Island. Both guides were professional, easy going and knowledgeable about the area, nature and kayaking. Plus we enjoyed the post-kayak improvised jam session. ; Mark Proden Island Mana Wines

My wife, daughter, and I took a tour with Justin. We had a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone interested or even slightly considering it. Justin was very personable and did a very good job of getting us comfortable with kayaking (although we had some experience, it was limited and some time ago). Overall, I would rank... More

I've been out Kayaking with Angelo and his awesome staff a few times, and It's always an amazing experience. Each trip is unique. Our last trip included eagle sightings around their massive nest which is overhanging the cliffs we paddled under, a waterfall, voluntary T rescue training, snacks on the beach, and even an exclusive side trip to his private...

We took 9 teenagers out on a kayaking excursion with North River Kayak as part of our Cape Breton Experiential Field Trip (http://www.besmarter.ca/category/student-blog/) and everyone loved it! The entire afternoon was professional and fun. The location is stunning and the guides are knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience! :) Karine
