About Our Cape Breton Sailing Charters & Sailing Lessons
Boating holidays in Cape Breton offer a fabulous way to see the area’s magnificent scenery from the water. The Bras d’Or Lake in Cape Breton is one of the world’s premiere in-land saltwater seas and the largest in Canada.
The Bras d’Or Lake has a great reputation, by sailors and boaters alike, for being one of the greatest sailing destinations of the world. With its sheltered waters, summer water temperatures averaging 75.2-78.8F (24-26C), southwest prevailing winds, and fog-free water, you can see why the Bras d’Or Lake has acquired such a reputation.
Richmond Adventure Planning (RAP) offers you an adventure tour you will never forget while sailing from St. Peter’s, Cape Breton by the St. Peter’s Canal, Canada’s oldest operating tidal lock. Our vessel provides a simple, pleasurable, cost-effective alternative to luxury yachts. 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 Nova Scotia sailing tours on both the ocean and the lake.
Travel the lake or just the canal; the choice is yours, the pace is yours, the experience is unforgettable. We provide a truly wonderful adventure journey for guests of all ages. Prior sailing experience is not a requirement. Relax on the deck or actively participate.
Guests can do as little or as much they want. Basic sailing instructions will be provided as requested and we are happy to meet your needs through customized tours.
