Overview
Are you a morning person? Even if you’re the type who’d rather stay under the covers, this Halifax kayaking adventure is guaranteed to jump-start your day! After all, there’s nothing more invigorating than a morning paddle.
What to Expect
Your Halifax tour will begin at the visitor information center, and from there you walk along the boardwalk to Kayak Halifax, where you’ll have a meet-and-greet so you can get to know the people sharing the experience with you. You’ll get all your equipment and safety gear and an introductory lesson so you can paddle like a pro. Don’t worry, no previous experience is required, so don’t stress if it’s your first time in a kayak. 

Then, head out onto the water! You’ll get some paddling practice in a sheltered cove before you take off on your kayak tour and the fun really begins! With the rising sun, watch a sleeping city awaken as you paddle the length of the entire boardwalk — from Pier 21 to the dockyards that are the home of the Canadian East Coast Navy. 

Explore the Halifax harborfront in a stable ocean kayaks and get up close and personal with this maritime city at sea level, where you may encounter marine life, from starfish to seals to Navy Seals. Along the route, you’ll also see stalactites as you paddle under piers, sailboats and marinas, warships from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, art installations, the Canadian Navy Fleet, and sites such as Casino Nova Scotia and Purdy’s Wharf. 

Circumnavigate and get as close as possible to Georges Island, a Canadian National Historic site that houses a fort and lighthouse, which are off-limits to the public. You’ll learn about the island prison and mass deportations, and you share tales of pirates, buccaneers, rum runners during prohibition, public hangings, and more. Once you return from your kayak experience, relax with a short walk to the Seaport Market, where you enjoy a delicious, well-earned rooftop breakfast overlooking the harbor and city skyline. The market itself is in an award-winning eco-friendly building, which is itself a marvel, and is often full of East Coast energy and music. As you wander the market, meet with local farmers and artisans, before sadly parting ways.
