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.
