The Sea Caves in The Oven’s Natural Park are wonder to view from a sea kayak. After launching on a calm protected spit in the Oven’s Campground, we paddle to where the forest ends abruptly in the north Atlantic with a drop of 50 feet to the water. The caves have been dug out of the slate cliffs by the relentless ocean swells. The caves are wide and deep and, when the tide is right, loud booms and large water spouts are created. Add to this a history of gold mining and the area seems magical. A must for kayaking in Nova Scotia.
