Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia - Kayaking & Hiking Tour


Brace yourself for a day full of adventure. On this expedition you get to experience Nova Scotia by land and sea. We spend the first half of the day on the waters off the beautiful village of Blue Rocks on the Atlantic Ocean. Kayaking along the coast we will explore many coves and islands and maybe even get the chance to encounter some curious seals and flocks of seabirds. The second half of our adventure takes place hiking over a cobble stone beach and out onto a coastal headland. Here we get a panoramic view of the jagged cliffs, coastal forests and clear blue waters. Keep your eyes peeled for playful whales and curious seals off the coast here.


Trail Rating: The kayaking is ideal for both beginners and novice kayakers. We spend most of our time in sheltered coves, bays and around islands. The coastal hike consists of a beach walk as well as walking over cobble stones, coastal forest and a rocky headland.

About Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia


This place may very well be the most tranquil fishing village in all of Nova Scotia. Tiny colorful fishing boats remain still on a sheltered cove. Back in 1927 however a severe storm nearly wiped out the entire male population of this village when most the local fisherman were lost at sea.


The Aspotogan coastal barren’s were created between 10,000 and 13,000 years ago during the last ice age. This striking stark landscape contains some interesting flora which include Wild Rhodora, Pitcher Plants, Sundew, Crowberries, Juniper Bush, Fiddle Head Ferns, Lady’s Slippers and Dragon’s Mouth.
