We had a group of six for kayaking with Angelo and Justin. There were six others with us for our 3 hour kayak excursion on the North River. We felt very well taken care of by our two guides in the double kayaks. Great instruction and safety orientation to kayaking. We had a bit of a headwind and some current... More

Came here with a few friends and had amazing day. Justin, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and patient. We were shown around the bay and got to visit a beautiful waterfall. The weather cooperated which is a huge plus. This is one of the best things you can do near Baddeck.

We were two families travelling with seven-year-olds, so we opted for the two-hour excursion. Justin, our guide, was fantastic—incredibly knowledgable about the area (and I say that as one who grew up in rural Cape Breton), patient, generous, skilled and funny. We saw several eagles, observed mussel farmers at work, checked out the waterfall and had a great beachside snack... More

There were 6 of us in our group with various levels of experience who participated in a 1.5/2 hour paddle around Kidston Island across from Baddeck. Angelo was an excellent guide, the equipment was top notch, pace of the trip was fabulous and instruction simple to understand. We appreciated the stop on the island as well as the treats Angelo...

The day I went it down poured the second we got on the water, but I still had a great time. It was actually beautiful to watch the raindrops on the water, and the cloudy weather made it very comfortable to be paddling. I went on the morning trip, and it was very peaceful and beautiful. Saw some eagles and... More

We had a great morning on the water with Justin (not Bieber :-)) on St.Ann's Bay. The weather was warm and the water was like glass; we couldn't have asked for better weather for kayaking. Justin was a great guide, the eagles (3 plus the eaglets in the nest) were posing for us and the lobstermen were checking their traps... More

My friends and I did the half day kayak tour with Justin (and Justin!). Angelo and Justin went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable- we were all on a first name basis within a minute. Not only was the kayaking great, but the homemade banana bread from down the road spread with Angelo's homemade rhubarb and... More
