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. This year we offer No Rush II, an offshore-capable 35′ cruising yacht that is safe, comfortable, and a 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 fun with your new sailing skills.

This is the “original green maritime adventure experience”: lots of fresh air, close encounters with marine and birdlife, 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 mid-June through mid-October, 2021.
