Pleasant Paddling is an excellent outfit for kayaking in Nova Scotia. We stumbled upon this place as we were driving the tiny roads of the South Coast. We happened to drive all the way out to the tiny community of Blue Rocks and chatted with the guides. Just standing on shore you could tell that it would be a great... More

We purchased the Four-hour kayaking tour to see the seals. Our two guides, Carl and David, were terrific. Not only did they make everyone feel comfortable and ensure all of us were properly situated in our kayaks, but they engaged us in conversation all along the way. They clearly were not only interested in fully informing us on the local... More

Enjoyed our evening kayak paddle out of Blue Rocks. Our guide gave us good instruction before beginning. She explained the natural history of the area and also local history. I would recommend this short evening excursion for anyone inexperienced at kayaking, like myself. Other, longer expeditions are offered. Lots of fun...but bring a change of clothes!

We booked the Blue Rocks tour...Karl, was an excellent guide; knowledgeable, friendly. The weather was a bit cool and windy so we weren't able to go see the seals, but we all had a great time.

My wife and I, in our 60's but have our own kayaks, loved this tour. The only other couple had no kayak experience at all and they seemed to love it too. The guide (Finn) was terrific, kept an eye out for everyone, and just really knew his stuff. Sometimes these will be boring, or the guide won't pay attention... More

While on a recent road trip to Nova Scotia, my husband and I decided to try our hand at sea kayaking. We couldn't have had a nicer "adventure"! The day was glorious, sunny with clear blue skies. I am not an experienced kayaker, but I felt perfectly comfortable as we were not paddling in open ocean and Jen had taken... More

I had a excellent experience with plesant paddling a few weeks ago. I E-Mailed them last minute and Karl got back to me within minutes. The tour was very well done and equipment was fantastic. It was nice getting some history of the islands while we paddled. For the amount of time on the water and to have a guide... More

We had a great trip this morning on 9am departure 4-hour guided kayaking trip from Blue Rocks with Karl and Lucas from Pleasant Paddling. It was a lovely experience being out amongst all the beautiful islands. We were both novices at sea kayaking having only done a few outings on rivers/lakes before, but felt really comfortable with all the instructions... More
