We were fortunate to get a private half day tour. Our guide, Jeremy, knew the area and its history quite well. He pointed out a juvenile bald eagle next to its nest, brought us to a nice beach and freshwater waterfall for our mid trip stop where we snacked on delicious banana bread from the local Clucking Hen bakery and...

I cannot say enough good things about North River Kayak Tours. From the moment we arrived myself and my friends felt welcome and relaxed. We were greeted warmly by Jeremy and Kyle, the two guides, and the owner's dog Jango. The location was spectacular and the customer service geunine. I truly enjoyed talking to our guide Kyle. He was knowledgable... More

Enjoyed the tea and waterfall break and the knowledgeable tour guides who know the local area very well. It was a perfect afternoon that ended with two eagle sighting. We had one in our... More

The place is absolutely gorgeous! We took the half day tour (ideal for beginner) and we had such a great time! Our guide, Kyle, was very knowlegeable and helpful. We fell in love with kayaking. I would recommand the place without hesitation to anyone who loves nature and who is going to Nova-Scotia!

We thoroughly enjoyed our half day kayaking journey. Our two guides did a nice job hooking the kids in and answering their questions as well as catering to the adults! Bonus - Django followed us (by land) all the way to our destination and back which entertained the kids (adults too) greatly! We enjoyed the peacefulness of being out on... More

Two adults and 4 kids aged 6 - 13. We had a great guide named Jeremy. Also had good support from owner Angelo at the beginning and end. Did the half day tour and they were quite flexible, allowing us to choose the kayak configuration we felt was best for our family. Jeremy provided us with some excellent local knowledge... More

My husband and I have only fond memories of our full day of kayaking with Angelo, Curtis and their other guests. Our day was warm but windy. We made our way along the shore as Curtis and Angelo pointed out birds, Eagles, and landmarks. Our group was curious and elicited delightful tales from our guides. We shared our concerns for...

We visited their Baddeck location called Paddle Dog, on the waterfront near Baddeck Yacht Club and across from the waters edge gallery. Eric set us up with two kayaks and all the needed gear, and we set off for a leisurely paddle around the neighboring island, with a stop to land and explore the lighthouse. They also offer instruction and... More

We enjoyed an excellent morning being guided around St Ann's Bay and North River by Kyle. We saw countless kingfishers and numerous bald eagles; some so close you felt you could reach out and touch them. The kayaks were good quality and in great condition (as were the PFDs). Midway through the morning we landed on a beach to view... More
