SEA and do
We work hard to ensure all our guests leave Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre with memories to spare, all year long. There are amazing adventures to be had nearby; but, the truth is, we’ve made it pretty easy to turn your visit into a staycation, SEAstyle. After all, we’ve designed our property as a getaway for all seasons!
We’ve got 32 acres of green space and pristine coastlines to wander. Our full-service marina is always a hit, so be sure to drop by for some pedal boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and exhilarating kayak tours around Mahone Bay. Also, be sure to ask our crew about our scheduled adventures including a bird’s-eye view boat tour of the legendary Oak Island, site of the world’s longest – and most illustrious – treasure hunt.
Cool off in the indoor and outdoor pools, then hit the tennis court, basketball net, mini-golf course or walking trails. On a really calm day, build an Inukshuk on the breakwater or search for beach glass and shells, hidden along the shore. And don’t be shy, we’re always happy to surf up suggestions!
Our more active guests in search of a unique way to see the sights, should visit our Marina to learn more about the renowned Rum Runners Trail. Rent a bike with us or throw on your hiking shoes and spend the day exploring this absolutely beautiful 35km section of trail, that meanders through all of our coastal communities. Winter guests will love our fat bikes; all-seasons bicycles that let you explore the snowy trails and discover our wonderland, no matter the weather.
Kids always come running for our popular summer recreation program and year-round dedicated “rec deck”, always stocked with crafts, activity ideas, an Xbox, video player and more. Snow days and rainy mornings are never dull with us, with a selection of books, classic board games and movies always on hand to enjoy. Grab a mug of our famous hot chocolate, get comfy by the fire and get ready for some good, old fashioned nostalgic family fun.
No visit here could ever be complete without a crackling bonfire by the sea – wrapped up in one of our cozy blankets – and our must-try fireside smores. We won’t say a word if you go in for seconds (what happens at Oak Island, stays at Oak Island!). Plus join us each night(May to October, and occasional weekend in the winter) at the Fireside Lounge for drinks, munchies, live east coast-inspired music and singing, as you raise a big toast to great memories. Also, if you find yer way to talkin’ like a pirate with yer mateys before night’s end, we won’t judge. Savvy?
