For over 26 years North River Kayak Tours has been providing award-winning kayaking experiences around Cape Breton Island. Located on the Cabot Trail, we offer a variety of sea kayaking tours and packages to suit everyone’s needs, from beginner to advanced. We would be delighted to host your Guided Kayak Tour and share what we know best.

Kayaking Nova Scotia is a unique way to discover the hidden coastline of Cape Breton Island. Our fleet of kayaks are modern, stable, recreational boats which are easy to handle, allowing the paddler to enjoy the scenery and adventure. Whether you are a first time kayaker or an experienced paddler, you’ll feel comfortable and secure throughout the tour. Both single and double equipped kayaks are available.

Come and see why we received Destination Cape Breton’s 2012 Product Development of the Year Award and TripAdvisor’s Top 10% in the world rating.  We were also a finalist for the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s 2013 Traveller Experience of the Year award.
