About Us

Location: You’ll love our new waterfront location at 630 Francklyn St. on the beautiful Northwest Arm, only 5 minutes from the Seaport Market and the cruise ship terminal on the Halifax Waterfront. We are only 10 minutes from downtown Halifax hotels but a world apart from the hustle and bustle of DT. Hotel pickup & drop-off may be arranged for a fee upon booking or with 72 hours advance notice.

Kayak Halifax Inc. was established in 2013 to provide the opportunity for locals and travelers alike to explore our harbour & islands and to experience our city and themselves from a unique perspective.

We are a locally-owned company with a passion for healthy, adventurous, soulful living on and off the water. Our owner and head guide was one of the pioneers of ocean kayaking on Canada’s East Coast and co-founder of the first kayak company in Halifax in 1995.

Kayak Halifax is Halifax’s premier full-service outfitter, offering the highest quality instruction and trips with certified instructors and guides. We pride ourselves in providing our customers with exceptional customer service, instruction, and on-water experiences. No previous paddling experience is necessary and every effort is made to place you on the most appropriate adventure for your skill & fitness level.

The Kayak Halifax Team is dedicated to the sport and spirit of paddling and the enjoyment of nature at one of its most intimate levels.  We are passionate about the well-being of the diverse ecology of the islands that we visit and ensure that we minimize our impact on the local ecosystems while providing our guests with an unforgettably fun & Zen experience.

Our awesome team lives a life of adventure. We are outdoor enthusiasts. We care about the environment. We’ve volunteered in Africa, slept atop active volcanoes, meditated & chanted with Buddhist Monks, experienced scuba diving with great white sharks & more. Join the Kayak Halifax team for both Zen & Adrenaline.

Our guides are outgoing, engaging, and certified to provide you with both instruction and knowledge, ensuring that your experience on the water is one you won’t forget. Above all, we like to have fun on the water, on the trails, on the beach, in our organic markets, pubs & outdoor patios. We strive to inspire meaningful conversations & to provide an unforgettable experience.
