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.

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