A hands-on day-sailing adventure on the Bras d'Or Lakes/coastal waters of Cape Breton Island. Your party (up to 6) is invited aboard Misty Cat, alongside historic St. Peter's Canal. Take the helm. Trim the mainsheet. Or just sit back and enjoy the ride. See alongshore, marine and bird life all around you. Swim then enjoy lunch at anchor in a quiet cove. Become part of the incredible vista. Custom daysailing charters designed just for you.

Thanks for your review - I'm always happy to introduce new sailors to the Bras d'Or Lake sailing experience, and to help people find hidden treasures during their adventures on Cape Breton Island, including the creative work of my wife Dawn and Encore Jewellery!
