Exploring the East Coast Series

Have you been considering heading to the East Coast to explore some of the amazing paddling this coastline has to offer? With everything going on we know that a trip of this nature isn’t currently possible, however, we thought it would be a great time to share some of the amazing locations the East Coast has to offer as well highlight some tips and considerations for paddling on the East Coast. We have put together a online series we are calling “Exploring the East Coast” for the paddling community – and it’s free. Our intention is 3-fold in that we hope to bring together the paddling community, create a forum for learning about what the East Coast has to offer and to provide an opportunity for us all to stay connected to this sport and activity that we all love – sea kayaking.

We are providing this in a 3-part series with each session focusing on one of the Maritime Provinces in Canada – Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Everyone is welcome to join and the sessions are free of charge. All you need to do is register and we will send you the call in details. Sessions will be limited to 8 to ensure opportunity for discussion and questions.

Here are the sessions below:

Exploring the East Coast – Prince Edward Island

We would like to welcome you to the smallest province in Canada. What it lacks in size it makes up for in beautiful landscapes, welcoming people and a variety of paddling experiences and locations for all skill levels. Prince Edward Island is known as “Abegweit” by the Mi’kmaq First Nation who first explored this land. The term Abegweit is translated as “Cradled by the Waves”, which highlights the Islands position in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

If endless sand beaches, beautiful red cliffs, world-class food and iconic lighthouses are on your list of places of interests for your paddling adventures than this session will be worth checking out.

Join Paddle Canada instructors Jason Richard and Jarrod Gunn McQuillan share some tips and highlight some of the beautiful paddling opportunities on Prince Edward Island.
