Canoe to the Sea video

Posted on August 04, 2016

A video with sweeping views of the Shubenacadie River is now available for viewing on YouTube.

Alton provided support to the Canoe to the Sea Society this year to develop the video in response to a request from the organization. Each year,  the Society hosts an annual fun marathon race and recreational paddle on the Shubenacadie River. 

The 2016 race attracted 84 paddlers who rode the incoming tide 39 kilometres from Maitland to the Village of Shubenacadie, a river journey taking from three to five hours to complete.

The video, filmed with the help of a drone following the paddlers.
