The tour guide, Kyle was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. It was a very relaxing and magestic time. The scenery was so lovely. The food they gave us while we were on the beach was super. Highly recommend these kayak tours for any level of kayaker.

We did the full day kayak tour and it was amazing. The guide, Kyle, was entertaining and informative. Don't be deterred if you've never kayaked before, as the sea kayaks (especially the tandem) are all but impossible to roll over and how to kayak is well-explained. The coves are well-sheltered so it's not open ocean. There are mid-morning and mid-afternoon... More

Took the half day trip which was good for us. We had not really kayaked before and the trip out was great. The wind came up for the trip back and it was a struggle. The guide helped us out by towing us in a kayak train. Great workout. I will feel it for a few days.

We highly recommend this establishment for booking your kayak tour. Friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Beautiful area to kayak - very protected so there are no swells or waves to contend with. Very serene. Half day tours are their bread and butter, a perfect way to spend a morning on Cape Breton! No experience required.

Very well organized tour. Jeremy was very friendly on the phone and explained the tour, what I needed to bring and what to expect. Kyle was our guide. He explained how to use the kayak and the different strokes. I've been kayaking for a couple of years and he corrected me on my stance and my movement. Even though he... More

Kyle and Jeremy were the best guides! We went out with a group of 7 and really enjoyed the tour! The waves were pretty high, but we were guided on proper techniques, which helped a ton! These guys know their stuff! If staying in or around Baddeck, this is a "must do!" If I am here again I won't hesitate... More
