After an introduction to basic paddling techniques and on the water safety instruction, we will paddle off into relatively protected waters to practice your skills and explore the untouched beauty of the Cape Breton sea coast.(Â½ Day Tour) On a secluded granite stone beach we stop and prepare a light lunch which includes home made bread, a pot of tea & home made rhubarb jam. (Full Day Tour) In the afternoon we will visit a favourite beach of ours and prepare a delicious lunch for you of steamed mussels, home made bread, a pot of tea, rhubarb jam and if lobsters are in season……you never know!.
We often see eagles nests, a sea cave and a lighthouse and maybe itâ€™s charming owners. There are interesting granite formations, along with an impressive amount of plant and animal diversity awaiting discovery. Watch for inquisitive harbour mink, Arctic terns, bald eagles and great blue herons to name a few of the more common sightings. A leisurely return paddle will confirm the ease, comfort and beauty of sea kayaking in Cape Breton Island.
