About This Experience

Brace yourself for a day full of adventure. On this expedition you’ll experience Nova Scotia by land and sea.

We spend the first half of the day on the waters off the beautiful village of Lower Prospect on the Atlantic Ocean. Kayaking along the coast we will explore many inlets and islands and maybe even get the chance to encounter some curious seals, whales and flocks of seabirds. A great deal of the sea kayaking is done within a sheltered bay which makes it a great choice for beginners and novices alike. During our time on the water, we will learn about the settlement of the village as well as the fishing industry that provided a living for the Europeans who settled in this area and still does to this day. The unique surrounding landscape also played a huge role in the survival of our First Nations people who also took advantage of the natural resources and spent their summers at seasonal camps along this coast.

The second half of our adventure takes place hiking out onto an exposed coastal headland. Here we get a panoramic view of the vertical granite cliffs, stunted forests, coastal barrens and clear blue waters. This little known hike offers a great opportunity to experience the ruggedness of this barren and boulder riddled coast (you don’t have to climb any boulders). Keep your eyes peeled for playful whales and seals off this remarkable rocky coast. We then make a stop at the quiet coastal community of Prospect to reflect on life by the sea.
