We just completed a fantastic cruise on Captain Gordon's sailboat. Everything was perfect especially his easy manner and hospitable desire to give us a welcoming afternoon. He was discreetly informative and allowed our active participation in manning the boat.More

It was a pleasure sharing a bit of our Cape Breton Island with you and your family. It didn't hurt that it was a gorgeous day. The mackerel fishing at the canal is best at high tide.
