Tusket Islands

peases islandLocated at the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia, the Tusket River basin measures a mere 32 km (20 mi) from Chebogue Point to Lower East Pubnico. However, between those two headlands lie 500 km (310 mi) of indented coastline with 365 islands and countless points, peninsulas, inlets and bays.

The Tusket Islands’ natural environment and natural history make them a perfect destination for sea kayakers. Today’s Tusket Islands are also a clear reminder of this past. Tiny cottages, known locally as “shanties,” dot the islands, and private wharves are piled high with lobster traps.
It’s an ideal situation for sea kayakers who like bird watching and island hopping. There are calm inlets and bays to explore, along with plenty of excitement navigating the constantly changing tidal currents in the passages between islands.

So pack up your kayak and spend a beautiful day exploring with us…
