Private Guided Sea Kayaking Tour

sea kayaking nova scotia

Visiting Halifax, Nova Scotia by cruise ship? Let us be your hosts with a private sea kayaking tour. We work with many of the cruise lines to provide their kayaking shore excursions, so check with your ship first to see if there is a paddling excursion that meets your needs and book directly with them.* If not, we offer several shore excursion options to help you make the most of your visit. Our base is a short drive from the cruise ship pier in Halifax, Nova Scotia and we are happy to arrange for transportation on any trip. Choose from one of the excursions below, or let us customize a tour for you.

*note: By booking through the ship, most cruise lines will guarantee that the ship will not leave without you. Booking a shore excursion directly with an operator carries no such guarantee.

 

Half-Day Sea Kayak Tour

Escape the crowds of the cruise ship and enjoy a private tour of scenic coastal bays, rocky shores, and sandy beaches at a comfortable pace with a professional guide. No experience is necessary, as every trip begins with a brief yet thorough safety and skills overview. Add an island lunch or a lobster feast on the wharf and it will be a highlight of your vacation.

Transportation to and from the ship is available and will be priced based on the size of the group. We have several food options to choose from- ranging from a snack on the water to a lobster feast on the wharf. If some of your group would prefer not to paddle, we have non-paddling options such as hiking, a lobster boat tour, and even a golf course located just up the road.
