Explore the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere

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 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. Sail the local waters like our earliest explorere and settlers.

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.

This is the ‘original green maritime adventure experience’: 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) private charters are tailored to suit your interests. Offered from June 18 to October 17 in 2021.

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