245 The Point Road
Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia
A truly Nova Scotian experience
At Pleasant Paddling, we have access to one of the best kayaking locations in Nova Scotia; the islands around Blue Rocks are practically made to paddle a kayak through. Pleasant Paddling opened in 2009 in Lunenburg and from the beginning we offered tours of Blue Rocks. In 2013 we had the opportunity to purchase the launch in Blue Rocks that we were using and moved our office out to the end of The Point Road. Our launch is a slipway in Blue Rocks harbour, one of the most picturesque fishing harbours in Nova Scotia. From Blue Rocks harbour we can safely explore the islands of Blue Rocks and Stonehurst. These islands on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean but provide a protected, family-friendly paddling environment, while offering glimpses of the open ocean.
Our goal as a kayak outfitter is to get people of all experience levels kayaking safely and to show them this wonderful area of the province. Our guides are enthusiastic about kayaking and everything that the islands off Blue Rocks have to offer. These islands make this paddling area unbelievably stunning and we can’t wait to show all their secrets to our clients. The smell of the salty air, the low moan of the whistler buoys, the howls of seals, coupled with the slow, quiet movement of the kayak make Blue Rocks an unforgettable paddling experience.
Our Launch site is 245 The Point Road in Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia.
Leaving Lunenburg you will see a sign to Blue Rocks. Follow the signs to Blue Rocks. Once on the Blue Rocks Road turn right at the first church (about 5 kms) onto The Lane. Next take a left at the water (The Point Road) and drive to the end of the road and you will see us and kayaks at the cul-de-sac.
Have a great time in the outdoors of Nova Scotia sea kayaking with a private group of friends or coworkers. Private group kayak tours are for everyone!

Office team building events, bachelor/bachelorette parties, overnight excursions, family trips or school outings are all possible.

We will do our best to make your plans happen and get your group paddling!
