Just came off a delightful e-bike trip along the Cabot Trail with Pedal and Sea Adventures. We were a mixed age group (ranging from 30's to 70's) with varied levels of fitness (but reasonably fit for our generations). The accomodations and food were reliably good, and sometimes excellent! We loved our guides, Michael and Brian, who were fun, knowledgeable, attentive and helpful in every way. I especially enjoyed that both are from Cape Breton and have a wealth of local knowledge. We were lucky to catch a performance by one of the foremost traditional fiddlers of our time. The e-bikes made the trip totally doable and a blast. Our guides saved us from some of the toughest climbs and directed us to to the most scenic spots. A great vacation of exhilarating outdoors adventure and exercise and stupendous scenery. We will definitely travel with them again and you should too!

I was part of the group of six with paul_vagabond on the self guided NS & PEI tours. I completely agree with all he said. Dana was a wealth of information, he contacted us several times along the way to ensure that we were having a great time and all was going well. When we did call or text for information Dana was super prompt in replying, we were well cared for.

Our bikes were fantastic, I rented an ebike as I ride one at home and it was lovely.
Our pick up and drop offs went really well and Dana entertained us with his travel stories as we rode along in the van.

Dana chose wonderful accommodations for us and had great recommendations for lunch and dinner spots. Every day was wonderful!!

We are busy planning our next adventure!

We were a group of six who did self-guided tours in PEI and the South Shore of NS, supported by Pedal & Sea. Despite the many tours that the company operates, we felt as if Dana attended to us personally at every step of the planning and cycling. Both routes were great to cycle and the choice of roads and trails were well thought out. There was a variety of terrain and many points of interest along the way each day.

The choice of accommodations was superb. We were happy with every accommodation arranged by Pedal & Sea, and some were truly fit for royalty. Our hosts at each place were friendly and accommodating. And the meals, whether taken at the inn or at recommended restaurants nearby, gave us a whole new appreciation for Maritimes gourmet cooking - an unexpected surprise!

Luggage transfers and other logistics were handled flawlessly, and the bikes and e-bikes supplied were good to excellent. And the little personal touches provided by Dana helped make this a memorable way to see this picturesque part of Canada.

While we had to postpone our bike tour one year because of covid19 travel restrictions, it was worth it! We recently did the Prince Edward island bike tour and really enjoyed it. Dana and Lori were excellent hosts/guides. The bikes were well maintained, the accommodations were great, and the food was excellent as well. This was our first bike holiday and we didn't really know what to expect. We had nothing to worry about as everything was taken care of. All we had to do was be ready for our legs and bikes to take us on to the next scenic destination. We travelled mostly on quiet, paved roads, with some biking on the Confederation Trail as well. PEI is absolutely stunningly beautiful. It was a wonderful trip and we will be doing another with Pedal and Sea Adventures next year.

My husband and I very much enjoyed biking around Cape Breton with Pedal and Sea, they are a professional and fun outfit that I think anyone would enjoy a trip with. I especially appreciated how knowledgeable, kind, and hard-working our guides Wally and Myles. The places we stayed were clean, comfortable, and interesting, and the food was excellent.

I can’t say enough about Pedal & Sea Adventures! We went on the Pedal & Sea Croatia Tour! From the moment we got on the boat, it was an amazing adventure. There’s no other way to see the beauty of the Dalmatian Islands but biking through the beautiful countryside and sailing from port to port. We went to so many islands in 7 days. You don’t need to be an avid biker to go on this tour. The E-Bike is a life saver with the incredible terrain. Not only was the trip amazing but the food on the boat and food in Croatia was excellent! Our tour guides, Boyan and Antonio were awesome!! Our luggage never made it to Croatia because of a strike in Copenhagen Airport. Boyan and Antonio worked hard to find our luggage and arrange it to be transported to one of the ports we sailed to which was NO easy feat! All of Pedal & Seas staff were professional, helpful and fun! An A+ operation! We are hoping to do another tour with them when this pandemic calms down.

Had a fabulous bicycle ride with our group tour on the Cabot trail. The guides were excellent. We had 8 of us on the tour and the guide/van would meet us along the route to provide snacks/water. The other guide stayed with the last rider which was perfect.
Routes maps on an app were provided or paper copy of the route incase we got split up. Had no issues. It is a very hilly course, so highly recommend practicing hills up/down. We had one rain day.
We would recommend the tour, very well organized.
The accommodations were good except one night at Cheticamp.

Our first adventure with Pedal and Sea and we are considering doing Ireland with them next year. We got lucky with weather( almost no rain and out 24 hours before Hurricane Dorian arrived). PEI is beautiful and the cycling relatively easy enabling you to enjoy the Island. We enjoyed Day 2 and Day 3 ( through the National parks) best especially as we found a couple of places not in our guide we enjoyed ( Malpeque and Green Gables farm on day 2 and lovely cafe at North Rustico on day 3)but all days were good with day 1 slogging into the wind perhaps the least enjoyable. The accommodation was good especially at Davay by Sea and St Pierre. When 5 spokes broke on my bike on day 2 it was quickly replaced. The only glitch was in transferring our bags on day 1 ( a public holiday) where they didn’t arrive until 7 pm and no one had an after hours number to call ,to find out what happened.

This was our first bike tour and most of it was great. Bottom line: If you’re doing self-guided I’d recommend speaking with your hotels ahead of time about amenities and rooms as though you were making your own bookings.

Our guides, Myles and Dan, were really helpful and nice guys. They went above and beyond - even though we were “self-guided”. There was a large “guided” group doing a parallel tour and we benefited from their proximity, e.g. detailed daily briefings and checking in along the route with the guide. The bikes were high quality and the meal stops were well timed and very good - some things were a work-around because of the hurricane. The Oak Island Resort is a little rough around the edges but the food was fantastic. The final day of cycling was long - 100km - and parts of it were boring, through long stretches of tree lined roads. They’re not offering this same route in 2020, so perhaps that’s part of the reason.

Our only real complaint is with regard to communications. We needed to fly in a day early to stay ahead of hurricane Dorian because Pedal and Sea does not cancel because of weather, and Westjet could not fly in the night of the hurricane. So we incurred the cost of an extra hotel night in Halifax. We were not given any reassurance that Pedal and Sea was monitoring the situation and contingency planning, we had to email them for information. The morning of the pick up we had to just assume that everything was still a go. Along the way there were power outages and closures but Myles handled everything well. Unfortunately it limited the number of shops and services we could enjoy along the way. Our final accommodations, the Quarterdeck, was beautiful and the restaurant is fantastic! However, they do not provide breakfast and stopped offering this service a year ago. Pedal and Sea were not aware of this and had to scramble in the morning to get us to White Point Resort so we could eat before the van ride back to Halifax. They solved the problem but it was a rushed and disappointing way to end the tour. We would book with them again, but do a few things differently.

Our first adventure with Pedal And Sea and it is definitely not our last.
We did not know what to expect but our expectations were exceeded.
Accommodations were beautiful inns off the beat and track.
Food was excellent and served with linen and sterling silver.
We are not serious bikers but had trained up to 35 -40 kms a day for about 8 weeks and found the rides challenging but very doable.
The guides were excellent and easily interacted with all members, making it fun for everyone.
If you want a incredible way to see Ireland... you should try Pedal and Sea
