Very friendly, professional guys who took the time to calmly explain how everything works (never having kayaked myself). Had a lot of fun on the water, chatting with the guides. Also loved spotting the eagles, the little picknick and the stunning views. Definitely recommendable!

Recently took a half day tour with this company along with a friend and 10 of my teenage students, all on a trip from Scotland. Most of us had never kayaked before but Angelo and the other guide Jeremy soon put us all at ease. We absolutely loved the trip, and I felt relaxed that my students (and me!) were... More

On our trip to Cape Breton my kids (12 &13) wanted to go kayaking and although i was not really keen (at the start!), we decided to give it a go and after our puffin viewing boat tour we had a rapid drive to be there in time for an afternoon on the water. Angelo and Kyle were excellent guides... More

Both Jeremy and Kyle were great guides and very patient and knowledgeable in teaching us kayak safety, techniques, and then filling us in on wildlife, mussel farming, and history along the way. A great stop at a lovely waterfall to snack on local banana bread and chocolate chai tea as well as Angelo's excellent strawberry and rhubarb jam! Waters were... More

Loved the experience would highly recommend it. First time kayaking and learned a lot about kayaking and about St. Annes Bay that I never knew about. Thank you North River Kayaking and Kyle for the tour.

My wife and I looked at something fun to do while traveling Nova Scotia. At first, we thought about taking a kayaking tour in advocate harbour with a different company but the day tour there was much longer and the lady on the phone was not very nice, to say the least. North River Kayak, on the other hand, sounded... More

We had an excellent half day kayaking down the beautiful river - Kyle was a great guide, and the sea eagles were an added bonus. Thank you!
