The Rackets are made up of almost a dozen islands, most of which are in the public trust or are crown land. The local conservation group, MICA (Mahone Bay Island Conversation Association), has been behind many of the island purchases. The result is that these islands are free from human habitation and will continue to be.  We’ll set up camp on the island that best suits our group. Regardless of where we camp we’ll be on the outskirts of our world.

My husband, teenage daughter and I did an overnight kayak trip at the end of August 2015. Our experience was great starting from our initial inquiry. Our guide made an effort to make sure he understood what type of experiene we were looking for, what equipment we would have with us (since we were traveling from Western Canada), what our paddling experience level was and if there were any dietary restrictions.

We spent two amazing days exploring the islands between Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. Our guide’s knowledge of the area and fun loving personality, first rate equipment and fantastic food made for an experience we will all remember for years to come.
