I had no idea about the Bluenose before I visited. Really moving part of Canadian history, and the relationship between the skipper and his ship. You can walk on he boat when she’s in Lunenberg, and talk with the wonderful crew who are knowledgeable. Great...More

It was great to be on board this historical landmark. The crew was friendly and it was interesting to see them work together to raise and lower the sails as we enjoyed our journey on this amazing ship.

We were not told that the Bluenose would not be in port during our visit and we were disappointed to miss seeing it.

It was a great experience seeing the iconic Bluenose II, and being able to get on board to view it up close. We didn't realise it sailed so we had to chase it up to Pictou, NS.

Enough people have given you dimensions. What I could add about Bluenose is I think it's very valuable to know the history of the original Bluenose before you take your trip as it will help you to appreciate why the folks of... More
