Overlooking the winding Shubenacadie River...



The Shubenacdie River leads from the world famous Bay of Fundy to the the deep water port of Halifax Harbour. On it's winding way through the middle of the province of Nova Scotia, it changes from a turbulent, tidal river to a more placid, chocolate brown water-way. 


Once used with it's own canal system for shipping, it today's remains a vital part of the area's economy and ecology, delivering fresh water, silt & nutrients and providing many recreational activities.  River rafting, swimming, canoeing, kayaking & fishing are just some other important tourism activities centering on the river.  Whispering Winds has waterfront access and offers spectacular views of the river as it makes it's way though fields, under highways & railways, past villages & towns on it's winding way to the big city by the sea.  You'll feel removed from the busy pace of outside life as you stroll along a river that rolls on regardless.
