Here, North America’s oldest operating tidal lock connects the Atlantic Ocean with the iconic Bras d’Or Lake, one of Canada’s amazing UNESCO Biospheres. Learn about the 10,000-year-old history of this important transportation hub that served the Mi’kmaq and their ancestors as a portage and meeting place.

Brush up on your old sailing skills, or take a beginner’s lesson as we head out on island studded St. Peter’s Inlet to the lake. No Rush II is a 35’ blue-water cruising yacht that is safe, comfortable, and a joy for veteran or newbie sailors to command. Anchor in a quiet cove for

lunch and a swim. Then back to the sea for some more fun in the wind and waves.
