Welcome aboard "Otr the Whaly Boat"
for an unforgettable experience visiting the largest coastal island wilderness area in Nova Scotia. See the flat face of Ship Rock Island where the sailors of the 19th century honed their cannon skills. Walk off the boat onto the white sand beaches of one of the Wild Islands and stay for a while. Enjoy the natural habitat of the local birdlife and sea-life. Have a picnic on the beach or a lobster dinner on the rocks near a rainforest. We offer Signature Experiences that include meals and camping.
Catered Island Camping Adventure
Your tour guide will take you to your private campsite on one of the Eastern Shore Wild Islands; fully equipped with a pitched tent, bedding and all of your camping needs. Your guide stays to build and stock your beach-side fire and grill your fresh-made, burger lunch.
Your campsite will be set for you while you explore the island and wander the white sand beaches. When evening arrives, your lobster and wine dinner will be prepared for you on the beach. Marvel at the stars under dark skies, appreciate the serenity of the pounding surf, and listen for the birds and sea life. Your excursion supplies include snacks and a continental breakfast.
The boat returns at 9:00 am to take you back through the wild islands to return to the Norse Cove Camping boat launch.
