Explore the famous Three Sisters rock formation by sea kayak! Spectacular Cape Chignecto Wilderness Park has been rated the number one kayaking destination in Nova Scotia by guidebooks and magazines alike. Don't miss the opportunity to paddle this incredibly scenic and wild coastline with an experienced, informative and fun guide. Launching from the red sands at Spicer's Cove, the cliffs become increasingly dramatic as you paddle further along the park's shoreline, and you might spot seals and eagles along the way. The highlights of this tour include the famous Three Sisters sea stacks, a natural amphitheatre that nicely amplifies your voice, lava tubes and other evidence of the separation of the continents, a small sea cave, steep red cliffs and holes-in-the-rock.
Checking in at the office in Advocate Harbour, our friendly staff will outfit you and make sure you have everything you need for your kayak adventure. After receiving your map and instructions, you drive around 30 minutes in your own vehicle to the launch area at a wild beach in Cape Chignecto Park, where your certified, personable guides welcome you. After instructions on the beach, we are ready to launch, and your guides make sure that everybody is comfortable. We paddle along magnificient, colourful cliffs at leisure, while your guides take pictures and entertain with interesting facts about the wildlife we see, the spectacular geology that is at our fingertips, and the people whose legends still reflect in the place names around here, the Mi'kmaq. Highlights of this tour include paddling through an arch and the Three Sisters rock spires. (On the high tide paddles only. On low tide paddles, you will be able to walk the ocean floor.) After about 1.5 hrs, we will pull into a beautiful cove to have a home-made picnic that guests regularly rave about. After some relaxing and exploring, we head back on the ebbing tide and will be in awe about how much the scenery is changing.
