Sailing On The Bras D'or Lakes

Sail away to "where the only sound you'll hear is the wind in your sails." You are invited to join the Amoeba for a sailing experience as unique and unforgettable as Cape Breton's Bras d'Or Lakes. Bras d'Or, meaning Arm of Gold, is Canada's only inland sea in the heart shape of Cape Breton Island. The pristine waters cover one third of the island, to a depth of over 900 feet, the deepest saltwater lake in Nova Scotia.


After a one hour drive from the ship to Baddeck, view Cape Breton from the deck of the 67 foot staysail schooner, the Amoeba. Sail by Alexander Graham Bell's stately mansion and watch for bald eagles in their natural setting. After your sailing experience, you'll have free time to visit the resort village of Baddeck.


Note: Dress warmly, a jacket or windbreaker is highly recommended.
