Event description

Description

You have to time the tides just right to be able to paddle through these arches. Paddy's Island, Annapolis Valley just 15mins from Wolfville and on this adventure we'll set you up on a board, teach you the basics of paddling, guide you on the gentle Minas Basin right at the height of the tide, we'll take our time paddling through each of the arches and along the coastline and then, as a group, we will head back to the Delhaven/Pereau Dock. This is an "All-Genders Welcome SUP Trip, so everyone can book a spot and enjoy this amazing experience.

Enjoy the stellar views of Cape Blomidon, the red earthen cliffs, the seabirds and blue sky's. The sun, tide, wind, and waves all need to play nice for this 2hr adventure so we may have to reschedule if the weather doesn't go as planned, but we'll definitely get you out there!

The ocean is cool even in the middle of summer so wear clothing you can get wet in (no cotton), a bathing suit (we do like to stop and swim!) or a wet suit and water shoes. Bring an extra set of clothes to change into after you're done. We'll provide the boards, PFD's and a Paddle Canada certified guide - all you need to bring is snacks/sunscreen, a waterproof camera carrier (around your neck strap is great) or a GoPro attached to you (we won't be diving for lost camera's!) and some salty smiles.

Here's a great video of the experience on a sunny, NS day (it's not always this calm and clear!) https://www.facebook.com/moregirlsonboards/videos/522479974876698/
