My husband and I have been sea kayaking before, and always enjoy the experience - it's a great way to see different perspectives of the landscape. I know the area around North River Kayaks reasonably well, but the tour showed us places we couldn't have seen from land. The on-land introduction was great - probably the best explanation I've had... More

Were hoping to do a full day, but didn't pan out, and in hind sight, half day was good. Treated to great weather (warm, sunny, albeit windy). Justin greeted us and was as friendly and engaging as could be. He set us all up, give us basic instructions, put the kayaks in the water and were on our way. Really... More

It just so happened, my kayaking trip ended up becoming a personalized tour do to the timing. Angelo was our guide and it was an excellent trip, to say the least. Between the Eagles and wildlife all about, a pit stop for lunch, and seeing the "Queen's land" - couldn't have asked for much more - afterwards, a family member... More

Me and my husband were there yesterday and enjoyed the tour. Angelo was very sweet. It was our first time kayaking but he made us feel very comfortable. We went for 1/2 day tour. It was for decent price and we loved the tour

My trusty (?) weather app indicated an 80% chance of rain the day before we were scheduled to take our kayak tour. I emailed Angelo and he assured me that his app only indicated 30% (or was it 40?) We awoke to beautiful skies and a warm sunshine, so headed out to find North River Kayak Tours' home. Upon arrival,... More

We enjoyed our day with North River Kayaks from start to finish. Our guide Justin was organized, professional and fun, the lunch was great and the paddling was awesome. Thanks for a great day on the water.

The setting is beautiful, the gear is in great condition and is good quality and the guides are amazing. You will be impressed with how the owner, Angelo, pays attention to every detail making sure that you have a great... More

My husband and I decided on the half day tour. It was about 3 hours long and had a wonderful snack half way through. The little beach we stopped at had a nice waterfall. We then sat down and had some delicious banana bread with some jam and also some hot chocolate chai tea. We also had a little red... More

Although I never tire of the countless visits to quaint fishing villages in Cape Breton, we decided to do something even closer up to see the island. We had a great day of paddling with "North River Kayak" today. From the basic instruction to introduce yourself to your group and onto travelling the water, it was clear our guides know... More

What a glorious way to explore Cape Breton. Within 5 minutes of being on the water in a kayak for the first time I felt totally at ease and at peace. We did the full day tour. It was a beautiful day, our guide was very knowledgeable and we added a number of sea birds to our life list. The... More
