Bluenose II crew working on deck

Deckhand for a Day

Experience the thrill of being a tall ship sailor for a day with our immersive full-day sailing adventure! 

Picture yourself at the helm, raising and lowering sails, mastering essential knots, and contributing to the crew's daily tasks. Sign on in Lunenburg at 8am, help slip the lines and set the sails as we chart our course to a nearby picturesque bay.

Participate in the hands-on experience of scrubbing the decks and polishing brass alongside the crew. Learn the art of setting and striking sails while the crew shares their knowledge of sailing and knot-tying during the journey to the anchorage.

After we drop anchor in a sheltered bay, enjoy a delightful lunch below deck with the crew. Post-lunch, we'll hoist the anchor, set the sails, and let the wind guide us back to Lunenburg, anticipating our arrival between 5-6 pm.

Your package includes lunch and an exclusive 'Crew for a Day' T-shirt, jacket, and hat. 

The cost is $850 per person, including all taxes and fees.

Please note that this experience is limited to 12-14 adults, aged 16 or older.

Secure your spot now for an unforgettable day on the high seas!
