“Great experience, great guides!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

My wife and I visited NS for our honeymoon. We decided to go kayaking one day and we came across North River Kayak. Our experience was incredible. Our tour guide Justin was helpful, patient, and downright hilarious. The owner Angelo was great as well. They were both hospitable and easygoing (and they made great coffee and banana bread with rhubarb!!). There was another couple (that may have actually reviewed just before us!!) who came along with us. I highly recommend this team and encourage everyone to give this a try.

“Great experience.”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

My wife and I had a great time on our anniversary. The 1/2 day started off with a double espresso. Just what the doctor ordered. After meeting our guide and going through the safety procedures we were on the water. That whole process took less than 20 minutes. Our guide, Justin, did a fantastic job of pointing out 3 eagle nests as well as king fishers. Halfway through the 4 hour trip we stopped on a secluded beach for tea and homemade banana bread. A short hike in revealed a beautiful waterfall. After tea we made our return. A great experience overall.

“Amazing tour although a bit expensive.”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We took the half day tour and had a great time :). The views you get when you kayak are absolutely amazing. We felt safe at all times with our tour guide Erin, which allowed us to really enjoy our time.
Really recommend it although it is a bit expensive.

“Such fun!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

My husband and I had a great time kayaking with Angelo and his sweetheart! We had a wonderful time on the water, and before we left, Angelo did an impromptu concert for us. Fantastic guide and very talented musician!
