Nova Scotia is blessed with a coastline that touches 3 sides of the province presenting paddlers with an incredible number of paddling options and destinations from quiet bays and protected coastal islands to exposed coast. There are sea kayaking outfitters located in many locations around the coast offering guided tours, equipment rentals and advice. Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia in conjunction with the Department of Health and Wellness, has developed a series of web based maps of our coastal areas called Water Trails that provide information on access and resources for those planning a coastal trip.
In addition to the coastal trail linked above, the Southwest Paddlers Association has updated the information about sites in the Southwest section of the water trail. See their data here: Southwest Paddlers – Nova Scotia
