As you venture out into Rustico Harbour, keep an eye out for fast-moving fishing boats that must stay within the channel or otherwise go aground. Stay to the side of the channel and paddle out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Keep an eye on the weather. The gulf can be fickle—one moment perfectly placid with barely a ripple and then suddenly dangerous with heavy surf and rolling swells if a strong north wind blows up. If a stormy sea emerges, you can gain safety by beaching your craft on any of the miles of sandy beaches.
