Paddle boarding

Let us introduce you to the world’s fastest growing water sport – stand up paddle boarding (also known as SUP’ing). You can do it right from Oak Island Marina. SUP’ing is not just great fun it’s also wonderful exercise and a fantastic way to get out on the water.

Bike Rentals

Strategically located half-way between the seaside villages of Chester & Mahone Bay, our resort is a stone’s throw from the newly developed Rum Runners trail. This multi-use trail, rich in heritage, connects Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the historic city of Halifax. Experience the coastal communities—savour local flavours at award-winning restaurants, explore attractions and seaside artisan shops. The best way to explore our shores is on two wheels.
