Public Sailing Charters:

With a minimum booking for 2 people you can join a party of up to 6 for a half-day morning or afternoon sailing adventure with captain. Offered weekdays.

Multi-day/multi-port sailing packages with stay-ashore accommodations overnight are arranged to suit your interests and schedule.

Join our Flotilla:

Sail as Captain or crew (per your qualifications) on a sailboat with our fleet, for a one-day or multi-day cruise.

You’ll board at our private dock adjacent to the St. Peter’s Canal National Historic Site. Here, North America’s oldest operating tidal lock connects the Atlantic Ocean with the iconic Bras d’Or Lake, one of Canada’s newest UNESCO Biospheres. Learn about the 10,000-year history of this important transportation hub that served the Mi’kmaq and their ancestors as a portage and meeting place. Sail the local waters like our earliest explorers and settlers. 

Brush up on your old sailing skills or take a beginner’s lesson. Misty Cat, a Nonsuch-class cruising yacht, is a safe, comfortable and easy-to-handle boat that beginners and seasoned pros will enjoy commanding. Anchor in a quiet cove for lunch and a swim. Then, back to the sea for some more practice with your new sailing skills.

This is the “original green maritime adventure experience”: enjoy lots of fresh air, close encounters with marine and bird life, pristine salt water and shorelines; hear stories and music from our local cultures. Half-day (3 hours) and full-day (6 hours) public and private charters are tailored to suit your interests.
