Nova Scotia's iconic Bluenose II will sail into ports and harbours around the province this summer for a tour called Sail Past Summer. The ship will depart from Lunenburg in late July and visit 26 communities in southwestern Nova Scotia, the South Shore, Halifax Regional Municipality and Cape Breton. It will also sail along parts of the coast of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, but will not dock in any ports.
Due to COVID-19, the 20-person crew has created a Bluenose bubble for training, maintenance and sailing the vessel this season. While visitors will not be able to board the ship for tours or cruises, the tour will give people plenty of opportunities to see the province’s sailing ambassador.
