Advocate Boat Tours take place on the mercurial Fundy Tides. About 160 billion tons of water flows through the Bay of Fundy each tide, equal to four times the estimated flow of all the freshwater rivers in the world combined.
That is our environment on the upper Bay of Fundy. We will take you on an unforgettable adventure to the most dramatic, awe inspiring geological formations of this unique bay. You can choose to discover these incredible destinations:
·Cape Split where the voice of the moon is the loudest as the most powerful tidal current on this earth flows in and out of the Minas Basin.
·Cape Blomidon where according to legend the Mikmaq’s principal god (Glooscap) resided. It’s a magnificent formation with a red sandstone base capped by a towering volcanic cliff. Known for its semi-precious stones at places like Amethyst Cove, it is a beautiful place for amazing photos.
·Cape d’Or and its Dory Rips where one of the most scenic lighthouses in Nova Scotia sits on the edge of the basalt cliffs thrust deep in to the Fundy.
·The mysterious island, Isle Haute where numerous seals frolic in the cold clear water, cliffs soar to the sky and eagles and peregrine falcons ride the updrafts.
·Refugee Cove in Cape Chignecto Park. Named after the Acadians that fled to this remote, beautiful place during the expulsion of 1755.
Our tours are high quality, small and personal, with a maximum of 5 guests. We operate a Transport Canada approved Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) Grand Silverline 550. Equipped with all the necessary insurance, safety equipment and with a certified operator at the helm, we ensure you will enjoy a safe voyage on the largest tides on this earth.
Your guides are Else Marie and Werner Ostermann. After operating NovaShores Adventures, a sea kayaking tour business, for 13 years and wondering about those places far out in the Bay of Fundy or in areas of such strong currents they weren’t suitable for kayak tours we decided it was time to give visitors and local residents the opportunity to experience these unique places. After a year of training and development to ensure we can offer a service as excellent as what NovaShores Adventures has become recognized as, we are pleased to invite you on an Advocate Boat Tour that we hope will be one of the highlights of your time in Nova Scotia.
