The Sea Caves in The Oven’s Natural Park are wonder to view from a kayak and a must do sea kayaking tour. After launching on a calm protected spit in the Oven’s Campground, we paddle to where the forest ends abruptly in the north Atlantic with a drop of 50 feet to the water. The caves have been dug out of the slate cliffs by the relentless ocean swells. The caves are wide and deep and, when the tide is right, loud booms and large water spouts are created. Add to this a history of gold mining and the area seems magical. This sea kayaking tour is sometime to remember.

This is a two hour paddle that takes place every Saturday night from the Ovens Park. Our tour launches from a beach within the park and we proceed along the coast. There are over a dozen sea caves we paddle by. We only enter the caves is the ocean state is just right. Once past the caves we continue paddling toward the village of Feltzen South. On this quiet shore we often see deer and many birds and in the water we can see seals and porpoises. We turn around and paddle back past the caves again and return the beach where we started.

Our family of 5 did the most amazing and memorable early evening tour of The Ovens caves today with our intrepid, friendly, professional, and incredibly accommodating guide. We saw some of the most beautiful wildlife, all in a respectful and natural setting. This is a fabulous trip and seems tailored to whatever level kayaker you might be.
Fun, while being educational and exhilarating all at the same time. Would HIGHLY recommend!
