About Our Cape Breton Sailing Tours
We offer half-day, full-day, and historic canal sailing boat tours on the Bras d’Or Lake in St. Peter’s, with a new adventure on every tack in our 25-ft sailboat, Cu Na Mara.
We are ideally situated on the lake side of the canal in the midst of spectacular, rustic scenery. St. Peter’s, where the ocean meets the inland sea, provides options for adventure tours on both the ocean and the lake. The Bras d’Or Lake is one of the world’s premiere inland saltwater seas and the largest inland sea in Canada. The Bras d’Or Lake has a great reputation, known by sailors and boaters alike for being one of the greatest sailing destinations in the world.
Travel the lake or just the canal; the choice is yours, the pace is yours, and the experience is truly unforgettable. We provide a wonderful adventure trip for guests of all ages. Prior sailing experience is not required to have a good time on our tours. Relax on the deck or actively participate in sailing with our experienced captain!
