Enjoy a Hands-on Sailing Experience

First, we'll take a look at the 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 needed. 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 - and a few mammals in the sea. Anchor for a swim and lunch in a private cove.... then head out on the Bras d'Or for some invigorating open water sailing!


You'll be sailing aboard Misty Cat, a Nonsuch 26 with a unique wishbone rig that's a dream to handle for novices and a yacht that veteran sailors always like to try. She is a beamy boat with heavy displacment, making for a very spacious cockpit and cabin, and a comfortable and safe ride. Misty Cat is the premiere day sailing vessel operating on the Bras d'Or Lake and has been for the past 12 years.

Brush up on your sailing skills, or take some instruction from the captain.

To get the date you want, your daysail charter should be booked in advance.
