So, you are new to kayaking and you want to paddle a lot…

Awesome! But you are right! Boats are expensive. Gear is expensive. Paddling is expensive. So, how do you get out on the water without breaking the bank.

Obviously, East Coast Outfitters is the place for beginners. We are the premier kayak outfitter for tours and rentals for tourist and travelers in Nova Scotia, but we are also a gathering place and a focal point for the community in Lower Prospect. We host basic kayak clinics every Monday from 6pm-8pm for only $30 plus tax. We also offer daily paddling specials every evening of the week for only $30 plus tax. Check it out: All these 2 hour paddles are ONLY $30 plus tax per person and all kayak gear is included and all tours are guided!

Monday – Basic Skills Clinic

Want to improve your kayaking skills. Monday nights are for you then. Work with our best instructors and work towards a Paddle Canada Certification if you wish or just come out and improve your paddle strokes, edging or try and work on a wet exit or bow rescues. Each day we work towards a progression of skills – starting with paddle strokes, and moving towards rescues. Each participant will have the ability to learn at their own pace and each lesson is structured towards the individual. 

Tuesday – Padding Club

Join our Club! These clinics are geared towards the intermediate to advanced paddler. We will be pushing your paddling skills and learning advanced strokes and maneuvers. Clinics will include: rock hopping and maneuvering, surfing, rolls, bracing and advanced towing a rescue techniques. The time is also for ECO guides to continue their training over the seasons and guides from other companies are welcome to join at no cost!

Seacology by Kayak

ECO has something for you 7 days of the week. All times are 6pm-8pm except for Saturday 4-6m and Sunday 8am-10:30am. No experience is necessary and all guided tours are only $30 plus taxes.

We have something more: We know you could paddle maybe 3-5 days a week with us and we know that can still become quite expensive for you. So, for only $150 plus tax you can purchase a MONTHLY PADDLE PASS. With that paddle pass, you can attend all daily specials, that are applicable to you, for an ENTIRE month!

We know that transportation is necessary, but please give us a call and maybe we can help you out with a carpool if you need a ride. Getting butts in boats is our focus so if you live in the city and don’t have a ride check out St. Mary’s boat club in Halifax and Kaynoe Rentals in Dartmouth for rentals.


We hope to see you on the water this season. Give us a call anytime and we can talk about the best way you can start having fun on the water!
