3 Day Highland Getaway



Join us as we explore some of the most beautiful paddling areas on Cape Breton’s Island via sea kayak. Watch the curious gray seals feeding on schools of mackerel, watch the American bald eagle soar high above you as it scouts for its dinner, paddle with the playful pilot whales if you are lucky. A swim in the Atlantic Ocean  just before a delicious Maritime meal is in order after an exhilarating day of paddling.

This tour is one of the most exciting tours we offer allowing the paddlers to experience the dramatic coastal landscape that Cape Breton Island has to offer.

So smiles everyone and welcome to Cape Breton Island.

Join us for 3 unforgettable days exploring the rugged coastline of the Cape Breton Highlands. This expedition promises to fulfill all the excitement and wonder of the mystical highlands.
