About This Experience

Explore the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of Nova Scotia’s stunning Eastern Shore on this otherworldly island adventure. Wander the beaches, bring a picnic lunch, and swim through the clear blue waters – all just over an hour from downtown Halifax.

Captain Ryan will welcome you aboard the ‘Sea Warrior’ and whisk you away to one of the Wild Islands where you can spend the day enjoying your very own ocean paradise, returning later in the day to pick you up, hear the stories of your adventure, and answer any questions you might have.

Hop aboard, adventure awaits!



Just over an hour from Halifax, off Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore lies a remote Wild Islands archipelago stretching from Clam Harbour to Mushaboom. This is the largest coastal island wilderness area in Nova Scotia and is home to untouched white sand beaches and idyllic sheltered coves, dramatic, windswept headlands and rugged rocky shorelines. It remains much as it was when Samuel de Champlain came upon it in 1607.
With much of the coastline privately owned, the Nova Scotia Nature Trust has managed to protected 85% of the 282 islands stretching over 30 km along the coast. Ensuring public access for generations to come.
