Bluenose II crew working on deck

Deckhand for a Day

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a tall ship sailor for a day? Join us for a full day of sailing! Have your turn at the wheel, help raise and lower sails, set the anchor, learn knots, and enjoy lunch with the crew below deck. 

Sign on at 8am, help slip the lines and set sail for the beautiful waters of Mahone Bay. Help the crew scrub the decks and polish the brass, then learn how to set and strike the sails. The crew will teach you about sailing and knots on your way out to sea. 

Help drop the anchor and then enjoy lunch with the crew while anchored in a sheltered bay. After lunch, we will heave up the anchor, set the sails and let the wind carry us home to Lunenburg, where we will arrive between 5-6pm.

Lunch and ‘Crew for a Day’ merchandise is included.

Cost: $850 per person (taxes and fees included)
