Canada 150 logo

Summer-Fall 2017: A great time to join with us as we celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday. Don’t miss the Canada 150 celebrations happening around our island!

Welcome to Cruising‑Cape‑Breton.info; your fact‑filled resource for essential information. Whether you're a cruiser venturing to our island, or a new or experienced Cape Breton cruiser seeking new horizons, we have the up‑to‑date information you need. And it's all FREE! For many cruisers, Cape Breton Island is the Ultimate Cruising Destination.

Cruise Cape Breton: The Yachters’ Guide to the Bras d’Or LakesOlder editions called it "The Yachtsman's Guide"; later changed to "The Yachters' Guide" for political correctness!
published such information in book‑format. It's long out of print and existing editions contain much misinformation. Later editions omitted several useful charts; chart and illustration quality was poor.

Much has changed since Cruise Cape Breton was published in 1974 and revised last in 1992; not only around the island but also in the way we communicate and navigate. Today, satellites and modern electronics let us navigate with precision. Radio Direction Finders and Loran‑C are history. Change is continuous. It makes guidebooks out‑of‑date before they are published. Cruising-Cape-Breton.info is our answer to this problem. You can see from the "What's New" column, we strive to keep up with changes and to improve the accuracy, utility, and presentation of information.
