A WONDERFUL DAY'S SAILING! I booked a day's sailing with Capt. Gordon as part of our week long exploration of Cape Breton and it was fantastic. We felt immediately welcomed by the Captain; his stories and anecdotes about the area were fascinating while revealing his passion for the environment and his community. Somehow 6 hours flew by as we enjoyed his hospitality and the peacefulness of being aboard a sail boat. Our Captain was also incredibly generous and upon learning we were vegetarian concluded our trip with a bag full of tomatoes and greens from his garden. Thank you Gordon for our memorable day with you!

Gordon is an amazing captain and is so hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it was amazing! Ann Marie was also so so wonderful. We shared lunch, and upon knowing that I like spicy food he hand-picked a few chilli peppers from his garden. I will never forget their kindness and thoughtfulness. It was one of the best days I ever had! I would highly recommend booking with them. You won’t regret it!

If you're looking for an experience that helps you feel connected to the local community, while appreciating nature and experiencing the uniqueness of Cape Breton - you'll be very happy sailing with Captain Kerr! My 2 travel mates, their 13-month old and I enjoyed a last minute historical canal tour with RAP. We arrived to a personal abode/backyard dock launch, and Gord's calm & confident demeanour to greet us - it really set the tone for feeling both comfortable and excited upon arrival, like we were walking onto a friends sailboat. Stories and history naturally sprinkled into the tour, my biggest takeaway was our Captain's humble demeanour as he shared what incredible initiatives he and his partner have initiated and maintained in the region, a glimpse into the care and pride that RAP offers in a humble and genuine way. I can't wait to do the full day in the future and to tell friends to sail this region, too! Wonderful and absolutely worthwhile.

Although we live on Lake Huron, we've never been sailing! We opted for a 3 hr morning sail adventure with Captain Kerr while visiting CBI. The hour drive from Sydney was picturesque, pre-ordered picnic lunch from Louie's in St Peters, which was fabulous and boarded the Captains sailboat. The weather was perfect and our Captain was really great to explain all about his boat, safety protocols and show us the route we were embarking on. This was a beautiful tour of the St Peters Inlet, the history of this region is fascinating and the stories were great. Captain Kerr is a very experienced sailor teaching us a lot and catching some fabulous wind on the way home for a real adventure! We had a great time and would definitely do this again. Your in very capable hands with Captain Kerr so don't hesitate to take this daytrip.
