I was able to fulfill a lifetime dream to sale on the Bluenose. It was a cool day but dress warm or take a sweater even on a warm day...it's always cooler out on the water. It was so interesting to see land from a different perspective. Awesome. It is a national treasure ..and proud to know my uncle worked... More

The ship under sail makes a very nice photo memory of your trip. The associated museum is well done and interesting.

This is a highlight, to sail on the Bluenose. I recommend it to anyone visiting Nova Scotia. The Story of the Bluenose is rich in History of eastern Canada, and seeing Bluenose 11 brings that history to life.

Went to Lunenburg in late October and by that point the Bluenose II is not "open for business" anymore. She was parked along a part of the dock that was blocked off, so we could only see a small part of her. A tiny bit disappointing but it was still nice to see her none the less. The view of... More

We went for a sail on the Bluenose II. Had a great time even though it wasn't a windy day we still had a nice sail. Saw some dolphins along the way. The Bluenose II is a great platform to take pictures of Lunenburg from. The crew and captain were great. More than helpful answering questions. If you are in... More

By late October, the summer crowds are gone, so it's a good time to explore. A Although we've been to Lunenburg a half dozen times, this was the first time the Blue Nose II was actually there. She was being readied for winter. On her deck was a giant wood scaffolding that apparently forms a frame for her winter shrink... More

Only 10 km from Lunenburg. Park your car and wander about. Great photo opportunities. Classic seaside views.

So you couldn't go aboard. However you can still find out about it in the nearby museum, the museum of the Atlantic. She is still very beautiful and worth seeing if you there for the museum and lovely waterfront.

Our original voyage was cancelled as they were having some mechanical problems with the engine. Of course, we were very disappointed as the day was in our original opinion - perfect! Calm, blue sky and warm temperature... We were lucky to get a couple of tickets to their morning sail a couple of days later. Of course, the weather was... More
