This evening cruise is available only through Sept. 1. On this group charter you'll sail into the sunset with a crew of up to 6 guests and the captain. We'll depart the dock at 6 pm for a 3 hour hands-on sailing experience. Upon boarding we'll check the wind and weather forecast, and the chart, and plot a course for our evening adventure. Everyone has a chance to steer the boat and handle the sail as we run through St. Peter's Inlet – studded with small islands and quiet harbours – towards the big lake. Chances are you'll see eagles overhead, herons on the shore - and maybe a seal or two surfacing alongside the boat. Captain Greg can engage you in a discussion of the region's earliest inhabitants - the Mi'qmaks who have been here for about 10,000 years - or the more recent European explorers who came here to frade, fish, harvest lumber and began settling the area in the 17th century. We can also talk about what's happening in Cape Breton these days - the Celtic and Acadian cultures are prominent in the music, language and the laid-back lifestyle that Cape Breton is well known for.

We offer cold drinks (sodas, juices and water) included with your charter. And we can provide a catered meal – or you are welcome to bring your own food and beverages of your choice.

The Bras d'Or Lake is a UNESCO designated Biosphere, North America's largest inland sea, and a beautiful place to spend a few hours, or a lifetime.
