In Nova Scotia, the presence of the ocean is everywhere. It’s especially welcome at the dinner table, where briny oysters, gargantuan scallops, fresh mussels, and Atlantic Lobster are all on the menu. On this adventure, you’ll taste it all and meet the people behind the region’s rich culinary culture. Spend a day with a lobsterman, going inside his waterside home for tales of his battles with the sea. Experience Celtic traditions that carry on in the form of rowdy barroom singalongs, tall tales told by sailor bards, and familial hospitality.
The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.

Travelers should feel comfortable walking three to five miles each day over beach and rocky terrain and remaining on their feet for long periods of time. This trip includes a kayaking activity that is suitable for all skill levels.
