I took my father and Husband and young son on this adventure for Father's Day one year and we all loved it. We have lovely memories and even my son who was only 4 at the time still talks about it. ( I actually went a few years ago but the choices above only allow for recent trips and I really wanted people to see how amazing this experience was)

These guys are great. We called last minute to arrange a half day on the water with our sons (10, 11 and 14) and they made arrangements right away. We had great gear, good instruction and a wonderful guide, Justin. He was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and points of interest in the area. He pointed out so many great sites and spent extra time explaining everything to our boys, patiently answering all their questions and making sure to divide his time among all the guests on the tour. We had brought our dog with us and were able to leave him on shore where he was lovingly watched while we were out on the water. Despite a windy start we had no problems making it around the bay and had a wonderful time with lots of great pictures and memories.

Amazing experience! our guide Justin was super knowledgeable about the types of animals that lived around the area. We got to see a "baby" eagle perched up in the trees.

We looked at the weather app and it called for severe thunderstorms, but when we got there, we had the most incredible weather! The sun was out, beautiful breeze, so glad we decided to trust Angelo instead of the weather app, otherwise we would have missed on a beautiful afternoon.

Gotta head out there if you're visiting the Cabbot trail!

The whole team at North River Kayak is amazing, and the whole experience is wonderful! Their tours are the perfect way to experience Cape Breton from the water, and their Cape Breton hospitality will make you feel at home. A must when you're in the area.

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.
