About This Experience

Sail, hike, and snorkel the beautiful Wild Islands dotting Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast. Savour local seafood prepared over an open fire for a meal unlike any other, topped by campfire fun and stargazing. Everything is provided in this guided eco-adventure.

Feel the wind in your sails aboard an open whaleboat, while getting firsthand sailing experience from your professional mariner. Nova Scotia’s Wild Islands are a chain of hundreds of islands, renowned for their historical and ecological significance, and have been featured in Canadian Geographic. Keep your camera ready, as these islands are perfect for viewing migratory seabirds, osprey, bald eagles, grey seals, and the occasional sunfish!

Landing on a pristine, white sand beach, you’re welcomed with a delicious lunch, prepared with local delicacies, including smoked salmon and homemade seafood chowder. Enjoy an afternoon of guided hiking and snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters to explore the area’s marine life or simply relax in the sun. Learn about some island edibles during a guided walk before dining on a succulent seafood boil dinner. Laughs, songs, and night-sky viewing await around the campfire with new friends.
