“At home on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Angelo treated my wife and I like long lost friends. The half day trip was full of fun and awesome scenery. Felt comfortable and very safe the whole time.

“Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I took my father and Husband and young son on this adventure for Father's Day one year and we all loved it. We have lovely memories and even my son who was only 4 at the time still talks about it. ( I actually went a few years ago but the choices above only allow for recent trips and I really wanted people to see how amazing this experience was)

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

These guys are great. We called last minute to arrange a half day on the water with our sons (10, 11 and 14) and they made arrangements right away. We had great gear, good instruction and a wonderful guide, Justin. He was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and points of interest in the area. He pointed out so many great sites and spent extra time explaining everything to our boys, patiently answering all their questions and making sure to divide his time among all the guests on the tour. We had brought our dog with us and were able to leave him on shore where he was lovingly watched while we were out on the water. Despite a windy start we had no problems making it around the bay and had a wonderful time with lots of great pictures and memories.

“Awesome experience! And the weather app lieeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Amazing experience! our guide Justin was super knowledgeable about the types of animals that lived around the area. We got to see a "baby" eagle perched up in the trees.

We looked at the weather app and it called for severe thunderstorms, but when we got there, we had the most incredible weather! The sun was out, beautiful breeze, so glad we decided to trust Angelo instead of the weather app, otherwise we would have missed on a beautiful afternoon.

Gotta head out there if you're visiting the Cabbot trail!

“A must when in Cape Breton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The whole team at North River Kayak is amazing, and the whole experience is wonderful! Their tours are the perfect way to experience Cape Breton from the water, and their Cape Breton hospitality will make you feel at home. A must when you're in the area.
