Fundy Explorer Day Tour (6 hrs) - Low Tide Paddle By Nova Shores Sea Kayaking

Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 9:00am to Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 3:00pm

The Fundy Explorer Day Tour lets you experience the amazing tides at leisure while taking in the spectacular cliffs of stunning Cape Chignecto Provincial Park. On a high tide paddle, you will be able to paddle through an archway and among the Three Sisters sea stacks. The low tide paddle will have you experience just how much the water level drops as the inter-tidal zone gets exposed.

This coastline is incredibly scenic and purely wild, dotted with secluded coves, archways, and rock spires. The clear emerald waters contrast the red and orange cliffs. Evidence of earth's history is right at your fingertips as you see old lavaflows embedded in the ancient rock. Try your voice at a natural amphitheater or look for evidence of the shipbuilding past of this area. The highlights of this tour include the famous Three Sisters sea stacks, a group of rock spires rising out of the ocean and steeped in native legend. We stop for a home-made picnic on a pristine beach on a tidal river mouth. On the return paddle, you will experience how quickly the water level changes on the biggest tides in the world.

Beginners welcome. A certain level of fitness is required. You do not need to know how to swim.

Children: Recommended age 12 and up. However, if you would like to bring younger kids and are comfortable with it, we do welcome them to join this tour. In our experience, younger children are of hugely varying physical capabilities and adventurous spirits. We trust that you are the best judge of those abilities - keeping in mind that we paddle an exposed area with the possibility of some swell. As long as each parent matches up with one child, and you are comfortable to paddle a double kayak basically on your own, it should work out well, and in our experience kids are having a lot of fun. The paddling time is about 1.5 hrs each way. If you would like to bring young children, please be in touch the night before the tour regarding the forecast.


Minimum number of participants per tour is two. Please contact us directly at or 1-866-638-4118 toll free for single bookings.
