You're invited to take the helm, handle the sail, have an intro or refresher lesson - or just kick back and relax!
This will be our 12th summer operating Cape Breton Sailing Charters and this year the Captain is getting a sabbatical starting in August. As a result we are offering our charters through the month of July only. We continue to offer full day and half day hands-on sailing experiences for your private party of up to 6 people.
Available dates are shown on the booking calendar above.
A Historic Departure
Your adventure begins here, adjacent the historic St. Peter's Canal, where you'll meet your captain to board Misty Cat. At St. Peter's, North America's oldest operating tidal lock canal connects the Atlantic Ocean with Cape Breton's magical inland sea... the Bras d'Or Lake. Please join us for a half day, full day, or multi-day sailing adventure in Cape Breton.
Enjoy a Hands-on Sailing Experience
First, we'll take a look at the wind and weather forecast, then we'll chart a course for the day's sailing adventure based on sea conditions and your preferences. Guests are encouraged to take the helm and handle the sail - with instruction and advice from the Captain as appropriate. Glide on the wind through island-studded St. Peter's Inlet to the Bras d'Or Lake – where you'll find eagles, hawks and cormorants overhead; great blue herons and deer along the shore, and plenty of fish in the sea - along with an occasional seal or wayward Pilot whale. Anchor for a swim and lunch in a private cove.... then head out on the Bras d'Or for some invigorating open water sailing!
To get the date you want, your daysail charter should be booked in advance - please check available dates for more information, prices and availability; and don't hesitate to call or write us if you have any questions.
