Fun on the Water

North Cape Coastal Drive’s 560 kilometers of coastline (about 350 miles) makes for tonnes of opportunities for fun on the water. Head out for some deep-sea fishing or paddle along our miles of coastal rivers and bays. The scenic beauty of our waterways will take your breath away.

Boating Experiences

Experience the Island from a different vantage point. Our estuaries and sheltered bays are truly beautiful viewed from the water. Canoeing or kayaking is an intimate boating experience. Settled down at water level, you’ll be amazed by close encounters with all sorts of sea life and waterfowl, from bank swallows to cormorants.        You’ll see blue herons, osprey and eagles winging over the estuaries and diving for fish. Bring your own gear or rent a kayak or other vessel, and there are lots of places you can push off from sandy bottomed beaches and inlets.

Fun on water

If you’d like a faster pace, spend a day cruising around Malpeque Bay. Check deep-sea tuna fishing off your bucket list by sailing out of the Tignish Harbour, the largest small-craft harbour in the Maritimes. Try tuna hook-and-release and mackerel fishing or take in a coastal tour with a local captain who knows all the stories of the sea.

Fresh Water Fishing

The North Cape Coastal Touring Region is criss-crossed with rivers and estuaries that offer great opportunities for fishing. Public lands give access to public fishing spots. Fish to your heart’s content with an inexpensive fishing license, required for anyone 16 years or over.

Come during the May long weekend for Free Family Fishing.  During this four-day period, you can fish without an angling licence. Many communities and watershed groups also offer free family fishing events during the spring.

Deep-Sea Fishing

Tignish Harbour is where you need to go for deep-sea fishing charters in both the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northumberland Strait. You can spend a day fishing for mackerel or angling for tuna aboard a 45-foot vessel.
