You can see these amazing sites from the shore or even walk out a low tide, but to see them from a kayak is a brilliant experience that cannot be bettered!

The beautiful sunny day on calm water with only 4 other boats in the Bay of Fundy—what could top that? Damien got us outfitted, told us great stories and facts, and guided us safely, to the Three Sisters and back. Lunch was filling and delicious. Worth every loonie!

And a suggestion: Stay in the Guest House. You have a private bedroom, private bathroom, and mini-kitchen—all in your upstairs wing of a gorgeous renovated Captain’s mansion. Anne (owner of NovaShores Seakayaking AND the Guest House) will take care of your needs. Advocate Harbor is a ways out there but by staying an extra night or two you can explore the beach at Chignecto AND the beach fossil beach at Joggins. Have fun, we did!

We were hiking in the area the day before and seen the kayak tour and thought we’d like to try it. Best money spent. Would defiantly do again!

We had a blast! The staff was extremely accommodating by allowing us to change dates last minute due to weather. The ride was the perfect length and the guides were very knowledgeable and had a ton of great stories and tales from the area. Scenery was beautiful and the lunch provided a nice break. Lots of good times and laughs for everybody in the group!

This is a great half day tour to do with friends or family. Actual paddling time was about 2-2.5 hrs so doable for almost everyone! Our guide, Emmet, was great and very helpful for first timers. He also took pictures for us to share on his waterproof camera. We had lunch, which was home made delicious (salad, home made bread, cut fruit, home made cookies, tea). It was a great way to explore the area otherwise inaccessible. Highly recommend this tour!

Thank you for your fabulous review Elena! So glad you enjoyed your day of kayaking. It has been amazingly calm weather the last couple of days which was so beautiful. It's not our typical weather on this exposed coastline - usually there is a bit of an ocean breeze to paddle into on the way out. Some confidence in an ocean environment as well an average level of fitness would be necessary for beginners. Thanks again!

We really enjoyed our kayak tour. David, our guide, was very knowledgeable, the food was delicious and the landscapes gorgeous. Really interesting to compare areas during high and low tide. It’s a beginner friendly activity, totally recommended!

My wife and another couple enjoyed this tour immensely. Guides Emmet and Curtis made sure that the entire group of 8 was comfortable, no matter what their experience level. They were funny, laid back, and engaging, all while making sure that everyone was safe. The scenery was beautiful and the lunch delicious. A wonderful experience all around.

We had a fantastic time on the water today with our guide Damien.

Sometimes websites offer pictures that aren’t exactly what the experience is like…but not Nova Shores. Every part of the experience lived up to expectations and hopes. The Three Sisters day tour was awesome! At the turnaround point, we stopped for a great hand-prepared meal (unfortunately we forgot to get the bread recipe :( ). We thoroughly enjoyed the trip today and it was certainly worth the drive.

The pace of the adventure was great as well, no one was rushing us to finish so they could return for another group, it was totally at our collective own pace. Thank you for the fun outing on great equipment and with one-of-a-kind scenery
