Surfing, Fishing &Water Sports
When you visit White Point, you would be remiss if you didn’t take advantage of our greatest feature––our beach! There is a myriad of ways you can take advantage of our scenic beach, including surfing, kayaking, white water paddling, and more. Lessons and equipment for water sports are available at our onsite surf shop for your convenience. What are you waiting for? Dive right in!
Check out what it’s like to ride the Atlantic Ocean on a surfboard here at White Point – take a ride now in our newest video!
Surf our ‘beach break’ when you are here – the Atlantic Ocean serves upswells that are perfect for beginners, and après-storms great for those looking for a bit of a challenge. Bring your own board, or rent one of ours from the Boathouse. We have long-boards, wet suits and even body boards – so, ready to hit the waves and ‘Hang 10’?
The Boathouse is open daily from Victoria Day Weekend (May) to Thanksgiving Weekend (Oct) so there’s plenty of time for you to give it a try! Feel the power of the surf, the saltiness of the ocean and yes, it’s chilly – but an amazing experience to be enjoyed during your stay.
Will there be surf when you are here?
While we don’t have a crystal ball to tell for sure, we, along with many surfers, refer to a website called Magic Seaweed – there is a report for White Point! We invite you to check it out. Of course, if you want to check ‘visually’ you can click over to our OceanCam on Nova Scotia Webcams to see what it looks like anytime.
