Overview
Explore the famous Three Sisters rock formation by sea kayak! Spectacular Cape Chignecto Wilderness Park has been rated the number one kayaking destination in Nova Scotia by guidebooks and magazines alike. Don't miss the opportunity to paddle this incredibly scenic and wild coastline with an experienced, informative and fun guide. Launching from the red sands at Spicer's Cove, the cliffs become increasingly dramatic as you paddle further along the park's shoreline, and you might spot seals and eagles along the way. The highlights of this tour include the famous Three Sisters sea stacks, a natural amphitheatre that nicely amplifies your voice, lava tubes and other evidence of the separation of the continents, a small sea cave, steep red cliffs and holes-in-the-rock.

Hi Joey, How wonderful that you had a great experience on the water with Liam, and that some fall winds did not deter you from having fun! (And the waves might have added to it?) Thank you for your excellent review. All the best, Anne
