After 14 yrs of specializing in guided day and multi day Sea Kayak tours and instruction, Coastal Spirit Expeditions (CSE) decided to branch out to include a rental program and demo sales program which we run out of our little shack affectionately known as The Kayak Shak!
We continue to place emphasis on service, quality, fun, and of course your personal safety. Whichever trip you choose, whatever boat your rent or buy we are dedicated to making your experience special...Maritime style!
And remember, no prior experience is necessary for taking an active approach to learning about a region, nor is age a limiting factor. However, a love for the outdoors and a desire to experience new and exciting things is recommended.
All CSE Tour Guides are certified with ACSKG/SKGABC/AECSKO/BCU/ACA or Paddle Canada and are well versed in the areas you will be paddling.YOUR TOUR DIRECTOR
My earliest memories of paddling are with my Dad up at our cottage on lake Muskoka when I was about 6 yrs old. We would take the cedar strip canoe out on the lake early in the morning as the mist was rising and paddle to a nearby Beaver dam and listen to the warding off 'smack' of their tails as we tried to approach stealthily. Now, some 40 years later, kayaking and canoeing has taken me to some of the most beautiful places in the world. I now make my home in the historic fishing village of River John, Nova Scotia where I can enjoy the best of both worlds...the Ocean and River. Join me, and let me share my beautiful backyard with you. Oh, and I am still trying to sneak up on the Beavers without them 'smacking'. Peter Whaley
