 Experience Bluenose II

Experience Bluenose II

There are many striking images of Bluenose II that have been captured over the years, but none compare to the experience of seeing the real thing. As you walk on deck, you can't help but imagine what it must have been like in the days when fishing schooners were alive with activity, sailing the waters of the North Atlantic.

The chance to see and experience Bluenose II is one that's not to be missed.

Harbour Cruises

Visitors can join us for a harbour cruise in our home port of Lunenburg or in one of the other ports on our schedule.

Deckhand for a Day

Join the crew of Bluenose II for a full day of sailing! Scrub the decks, help set and strike the sails, take the helm, and have lunch with the crew. Learn more on our Deckhand for a Day page.

Open Decks

Open decks provide an opportunity to walk the deck of Bluenose II and chat with the crew. While in Lunenburg and Halifax, decks are typically open between cruises, from 11:45 to 1pm, and from 3:45pm until dusk. See our schedule for details. There is no cost for open decks, and no need to book ahead.
