We recently had the opportunity to join a guided day paddle on Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy.
Known for the world’s highest tides, visited annually by countless whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals, Fundy offers some of the most spectacular shoreline kayaking in North America.
We met our guides and fellow paddlers at Spicer’s Cove in Cape Chignecto Park, near Advocate Harbor, NS. The crew from Nova Shores Adventures quickly had the tandem kayaks and gear ready on the beach, but the afternoon wind and waves delayed our launch for an hour or two. As the tide fell, so did the waves and we were soon on the water and headed for the Three Sisters rock formations.
Not far from the renowned Joggins Fossil Cliffs, these are some of the oldest exposed geological layers and coastline anywhere in the world. We glided along beneath high cliffs, inside wave-carved amphitheater sea caves, and through tall stone archways.
All in all, a beautiful afternoon on the water with some great people!
