Nationally certified guides, who receive months of intensive training before taking out any tour groups, lead kayakers on sea adventures into sheltered coves, through protected bays, and around secluded beaches. Halfway through their tour, groups paddle to a secluded island and disembark in order to enjoy a light snack and stretch. Groupon holders can also opt for a single or double sea kayak rental and guide themselves through the waves.

About East Coast Outfitters
Long before its first kayak hit the water, East Coast Outfitters (ECO) established a commitment to helping the local community as well as the environment. The eco-tourism company is based in the small fishing village of Lower Prospect, which suffered a massive collapse in the groundfishing industry. To help the town recover, the company started employing residents as guides, maintenance workers, and even office managers.
Today, ECO put the area's cultural heritage and abundant wildlife on display at the same time through sea kayak tours and watercraft rentals.
Every tour and skill-building or certification class departs ECO's floating wharf under the watchful eye of at least one expert guide. These guides have all completed a rigorous eight-month training program, and are certified by Paddle Canada and in Wilderness First Aid, making them quite capable of assisting paddlers.
Most excursions are suitable for all experience levels and range from the half-day to multi-day tour, plus special trips at sunset. Tour guides lead kayaks past the rocky coasts of wild islands and explore sheltered inlets. Sometimes, local wildlife such as eagles, seals, and whales make appearances.
