Sunset Paddle Guided Kayak Tour
Our daily evening guided kayak tour. 6pm to 8pm. Any wind drops as the sun sinks lower on the horizon. It is normally completely calm and tranquil as we paddle back to the office watching the sunset.
Launching from our office at The Point in Blue Rocks this tour is a great way to end a day. Weaving through island after island, you’ll see unique views and the wide ranging beauty of Nova Scotia’s coast. As the sun drops herons wade in the shallows and cormorants fly back to their roosts on Little Duck Island.

We meet at the end of The Point road at the 8:45 am. If you need directions please give us a call.
After introductions and paperwork, equipment will be distributed to all the paddlers and we will talk briefly about the kayaking gear and how to use it. Next we’ll go over the sea kayaks from bow to stern explaining all the parts. We’ll get everyone to sit in their kayak and adjust the seat and the foot peddles. After everyone is comfortable we launch the boats in the the beautiful calm waters of Blue Rocks right on the edge of Nova Scotia.
Once on the water, we’ll take a quick paddle and then review the basic strokes we’ll be using. After that, we’re ready to delve into the many islands of Blue Rocks. We’ll paddle in amongst the islands, protected from the open ocean, for about an hour and a half. As the paddle nears its end the sun is meeting the horizon. We finish in Blue Rocks harbour, where we started, and help everyone out of their kayaks and wish everyone other pleasant adventures.
