Cape Chignecto Park is an incredibly beautiful place to paddle and camp. We paddle the park's dramatic northern coastline for 2-3 hrs until we reach the secluded bay of Seal Cove. Here, we'll relax on the beach, have lunch, and set up camp. In the afternoon, you have the option of hiking up the escarpment to Green Point (1 h return) for magnificent vistas back to the Three Sisters and across the Bay to Fundy National Park, or you could go out kayaking again with your guide to float among the seals. You land again for dinner on the beach facing west - perfect for the sunset. The next morning, you will have breakfast at leisure, pack up camp, stop for lunch in one of the coves along the way, and be back at the launch spot around 2-3 pm. The tides change the scenery dramatically, and it is great to spend a whole tidal cycle by the Bay - have the water almost lapping at your tent's doorstep and wake up to a huge beach with quite a walk to the water's edge.

On all tours, we provide healthy, tasty & carefully prepared meals. Most ingredients are either home-grown in our garden, home-baked, or provided by the local fishermen.

The usual group size is up to 6. For a larger party, please contact us directly.

We usually take our guests on tour in double kayaks as the conditions on the Bay can change quickly, and the immense tides can create some extra challenges. The doubles are stable yet sporty, long sea kayaks that leave each paddler enough space to paddle even if they shouldn't be in sync.

We provide all gear but sleeping bags. Guests can bring their own or rent one from us for CA$ 20. We also provide 2 medium sized dry bags for your personal gear and will provide a packing list.

Full payment is due upon booking. For cancellations of up to 30 days before tour start, a refund of 90 % of the tour price will be issued. For cancellations of 30 days or less, there will be no refund. We recommend a travel cancellation insurance. If NovaShores has to cancel, there will be a full refund.
