Truth to tell, Pedal & Sea Adventures is a small — but mighty! — company run by one of Nova Scotia’s most experienced adventurers. Dana Gallant has been organizing bicycle tours in Atlantic Canada for over 20 years. Dana wanted to share one of the world’s best places with travellers in need of a little R&R — riding and relaxation, that is.
Though he could run his bike tours from any number of exotic locales, Dana has settled in and bases the company in the Canadian Atlantic provice of Nova Scotia. Dana likes living here, and when he established Pedal & Sea Adventures, this was the place he first wanted to show people.
Nova Scotia rewards people who learn about a place by staying active — by walking, biking, exploring and kayaking. At Pedal & Sea, every member of our staff believes that touring this province by bicycle is simply one of the best things you can do.
Pedal & Sea Adventures has grown from humble beginnings to become an international tour company. The company continues to double in size every couple of years, with PSA boasting almost an 80% retention rate (the industry standard is less than 30 per cent). In other words, if you book with Pedal & Sea for one tour, you’re likely to travel with us again down the road.
Clients quickly become friends — about 75% of our guests return to travel with us again — and we like to think it’s because of the personal touch. Dana and his staff are bright, personable guides who treat people as they would like to be treated. We look for staff who are overflowing with courtesy, respect, friendliness and an unquenchable joie de vivre! You’re on vacation, after all. We promise that you will make rich memories when you book with us — enough to last a lifetime!
From that very first season, offering just two Nova Scotia tours, Pedal & Sea has grown dramatically every year since — by taking very good care of their customers.
Pedal & Sea Adventures also offers tours in two other Canadian provinces: Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. They’re two remarkably beautiful areas, but they are so different that it’s hard to believe they’re both Atlantic provinces.
In Europe, Pedal & Sea Adventures runs dozens of tours every year in Ireland, Italy and Croatia. Pedal and Sea started offering Italian tours during its second season, and we now run tours in Tuscany and Puglia (said to be the next big thing in international travel). What can we say? We love Italy! And we’re sure to add another tour or two before the decade ends.
And that’s why we want you to come play with us! We guarantee that you’ll be glad that you did.
