Blue Rocks afternoon sea kayak tour

This sea kayak tour meanders through the islands around Blue Rocks and showcases why this is the best paddling area in Nova Scotia. Islands, so many islands.

Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the islands of Blue Rocks. These islands make a premier sea kayaking destination that provide a protected paddling environment, while offering glimpses of the open ocean. Made up of stratified slate pushed upward by crustal folding, this stunning maze of islands has passageways that only kayakers can navigate.

You’ll hear the swells rolling over rocks, the haunting sound of groaner buoys, and seals calling in the distance as you paddle through the beautiful islands and skirt picturesque fishing villages.

This 3-hour guided sea kayak tour is offered daily at 2:00 pm and is perfect for paddlers of all ages and experience levels.

What to expect

Launching from one of the most scenic fishing villages on the east coast, Blue Rocks. This tour delves into the rocky islands and kayakers will immediately feel they have entered the wilderness. Using the narrow canals between the islands for protection paddlers will weave through island after island offering unique views every few minutes.

Throughout the tour, you’ll stop to learn about the flora and fauna–from the bright yellow seaweed, and colourful shells to the blue and grey hues of the rocky landscape. We’ll also stop on one of the islands for a chance to stretch, explore a secluded beach, and have a snack. Your guide will explain the life cycle of the area’s aquatic foods. On the return paddle, we’ll follow a different, sheltered, zigzagging route, speckled with pauses along the way for stories and wildlife viewing.

My wife and I did the afternoon tour with four other friends. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer afternoon. The guides were great, they are well trained in kayaking and you feel safe and secure plus they have fun and interesting tidbits of history about the area. The scenery was amazing.
A first rate kayaking tour company, if you are in the area make sure to put it on your list of things to do.

Stunningly beautiful tour of the Blue Rocks with a smart, witty, charming guide to show us things we’ve never seen. It was one of the highlights of a week in Nova Scotia.
