Let us take you kayaking for the day on the world's biggest tides, here on the Bay of Fundy. Paddling along the Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Geopark is the best way to experience the spectacular scenery. North America once separated from Africa here, and the evidence is still visible in the cliffs today: Lava flows, fossils, colourful rock formations steeped in indigenous storytelling, and arches to paddle through.
A highlight of the tour are the Three Sisters rock spires, which we will kayak through while taking photographic memories to take home. We will stop at a remote beach that used to be one of the busiest shipyards along the Fundy shore during the age of sail. Today, it is a heaven of serenity, where we might find remnants of the past once the tide recedes. Here, we might see a bald eagle fly over, or hear kingfishers chatter. We settle down on driftwood for a home-made meal fresh from our organic garden. Upon paddling back, the tide will be well into the ebb, so areas where we previously paddled through are now sitting high and dry - an incredible sight. The paddling time each way is about 1.5 hrs, with an hour for the picnic. We provide all the gear needed, food, photos and instructions on how to paddle and steer the kayaks by a certified guide.

What Guests Are Saying

My wife and another couple enjoyed this tour immensely. The guides 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.
