The one and balk hour plus around the harbor on a hand made 35 year old ship was one of the highlites of our trip to NS. The Captain and crew are very informative and make the trip very informative. Got to see American eagles approach the boat within 20 yards. Saw the bell property from the bay. The trip was made under sail. At $25, I found it to be one of the best values of my vacation. Can't tell you how many times I paid for museums that were a little more than school aged crayon drawings. This is first class and reasonable. Well worth the time.

This was a nice tour of the lake in Baddeck, and good value for your $25. The tour is about 1.5 hours in length, and you will get to see the lake, surrounding islands and the captain even fed some bald eagles, so they come close to the boat. We sat near the back of the boat, as the front of the boat was full. If you want to hear about the area, and more informaiton I would suggest sitting near the front, as that is where the one man crew stayed and spoke. We couldn't hear him from where we sat, so didn't get the full tour informaiton. Other than that, it was enjoyable and worth the money.

We got in right away for a 1 1/2 hour sail around the harbor. Our captain pointed out historical things of interest. He fed the eagles in the area so that we could see them up close. It was very chilly that day, so bring a jacket. The cost was $25 per person, tax included, which we thought was a very reasonable price.
We had a great time!
