What people are saying:

Excellent Introduction to Sea Kayaking Course!

My husband and I both took the Intoduction to Sea Kayaking course with Cape Lahave Adventures yesterday. Even in the wind, rain, and fog, we had a great time and learned so much! Scott is a very skilled and patient instructor with a great sense of humour. I felt totally supported and comfortable and learned a lot of valuable tips regarding stroke technique and water rescues. Being in a small group ensures you get individual attention where needed. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is thinking of getting out there and paddling. It was well worth it!

Sea Kayaking Course: June 23/18

Cape Lahave Adventures is located in a picturesque Nova Scotia village. They provided excellent, well maintained equipment and superlative instruction. Instructor Rob was extremely knowledgable, professional, sensitive to our various learning styles, very patient, accommodating and most of all lots of fun. The owners even provide tea, coffee and cookies. I can’t imagine a better environment to learn sea kayaking.
