We did the Cape Chignecto 3 day paddle in August. We checked in at the office, picking up instructions and lifejackets and then drove to the launch site to meet Elliot, our guide. The weather was beautiful and we paddled down to Seal Cove and set up camp, Elliot prepared lunch but then the heavens opened so we played cards... More

My wife and I shared a tandem kayak for our first ocean kayaking experience. We did the one-day low-tide paddle around the Three Sisters. NovaShore runs a really well-run expedition from start to finish. Our two guides were knowledgable and funny. They have clear directions, helped all the kayakers when we needed stuff, and prepared a fancy and tasty lunch... More

(This is a 5 star PLUS outing for every part but how the very end of our trip was and that may have been unusual, so that's why it's a 4 star.) On August 20th, our group of 6 adults went out with NovaShores Adventures for their 6 hour Kayak Trip around Cape Chignecto and the Three Sisters and had... More

We had booked for the three sisters tour, but the wind was too high so we made the most of a kayak tour near Cape d'Or. The booking was easy to complete, waivers done online, directions to pick up our gear were clear and that process very quick and welcoming. The drive to the launch point was a bit rough... More

Due to high winds we had to change destinations. They contacted us the day prior asking if we still wanted to go or not. We had to stay in horseshoe bay due to the waves so we really didn't do much other the paddle around. We had spoken with three couples the day prior that were able to do the... More

Perfect. There is no other word to describe our experience kayaking the Bay of Fundy with NovaShores. On the day of the tour, we reported to their office in Advocate Harbour 45 minutes early, were immediately greeted and given instructions / equipment for our tour: to include life vests, skirts for our kayak and a map with directions to our...

Email advertised that kayaking would be 2 and a half to 3 hours. Arrived at 2:30, didn't get in water until 3:30 and finished at 5:00. The groups were not organized by kayaking experience. Expensive for the time spent kayaking, however, if weather cooperates and have an opportunity to do full tour to Three sisters would be worth it. Our... More

The Horseshoe Cove tour is a paddle that we offer on days when it is too windy to paddle the exposed Three Sisters area, as an alternative to just cancelling and for people who still want to get on the water and see the steep cliffs and paddle through an arch. The above timing is absolutely correct. Our tour times... More

What an incredible experience. Damian took us out on a two day, 1 night terrific coastal tour. Damian was fantastic and so accommodating to what we wanted from our trip. He went above and beyond and we loved talking to him. I missed him for days after the trip was over. The tides are just astonishing to witness. Viewing tides... More

My husband and I, both in our 50s along with our 14-year daughter, were a little nervous about this adventure. We didn't need to be. The bay was calm, our guides Damian and Megan were very knowledgeable and fun; and we had the most perfect day. If you want to have an amazing experience, make memories that will last a... More

Not a good trip for beginners. Guide was friendly, but not able to focus on different levels of her group. Rudder didnt work. Limited help available. We ended up leaving the tour to return to shore. Very dissappointing.

Hi Liz, Thanks for taking the time to review your 3-hr Horseshoe Cove kayaking tour. Sorry to hear you were not happy with your kayaking experience and turned around before your group, joining another guide and group to assist you with the landing. This is the tour that we specifically offer to families with younger kids and inexperienced paddlers. On... More
