(A comment from one of our very first sailing guests.)
Now in our 9th year, Captain Greg and Misty Cat offer you a daysailing adventure you will never forget. With over 50 years of sailing experience and a well-found yacht you'll sail the Bras d'Or Lake in comfort, safety and style.
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 experience 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; 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!
A very special place
Bras d'Or Lakes and its watershed were recently designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve. This special status recognizes one of Canada's most charismatic ecosystems. Spanning an area of more than 3,500 square kilometers, the region provides a superb and almost limitless opportunity for experiences in pristine nature, among some very unique cultures.
