Adventures at Sea
Big Tancook and Little Tancook are two islands located 8km off the southern coast of Nova Scotia. Accessible by a passenger ferry that runs daily, the Tancook Islands make a great day trip. Enjoy lunch on Big Tancook in season.
Take a Scenic Boat Tour out to see nesting arctic terns, puffins, seals, and the occasional whale. Tours depart from the Peggy’s Cove Government Wharf.
Head down to Lunenburg’s working waterfront and book your spot on one of three offshore adventures. Lunenburg Whale Watching offers a three hour excursion on which you can expect to see not just the majestic creatures, but seals, puffins, dolphins and turtles.
Heritage Fishing Tours lets YOU decide the length of the voyage, and what you want to do – anything from deep-sea fishing to a picnic lunch onboard the boat.
Star Charters offers a day cruise aboard a 48 foot wooden ketch, or a Sunset cruise at night that lets you see the nearby Ovens like never before.
Chester Race Week! Canada’s largest keel boat regatta is hosted by the Chester Yacht Club in the second full week of August each year. Watch the starts and finishes from the Yacht Club veranda and experience the live entertainment held there every night. Not just for members!
Shut-In Island is accessible only by boat. Camping is permitted on this massive granite “whalesback” shaped island, but watch out for its resident ghosts, camp at your own risk.
