A must do experience while in Lunenburg! Very interesting to watch them raise and lower the sails! Dress warmly as it’s much windier out in the Harbour.

I have visited the Blue Nose probably 4 or 5 time over the years and it’s always a favourite ... amazing workmanship in the maintenance of it and obvious labour of love. I would recommend it to anyone who has never been!

The history of the Bluenose is so compelling. This recreation of the original ship keeps the history alive. We had a great afternoon sail -- watching the crew work was really incredible.

First of all, to avoid disappotment, book your tickets well ahead of time — they have an online website that is easy to use.
This is an outstanding exursion and one that should not be missed. Crew were professional and competent. The ship, although quite large, and running under four sails, we felt safe. We had a good wind to fill the sails, but we never felt seasick. Dress in layers because the temperature varies dramatically during the trip. Make sure to visit the washroom before you depart. No food allowed on board; bring your own water. Great value and experience for the price — about $64.00 tax included (each) adult. Most of the crew were young people and eager to share their knowledge of the ship and answer questions. Highly recommend — will not be disappointed.

We were walking along the waterfront in Lunenburg and boarded the Bluenose II. It was a beautiful evening and the ship was at the dock. It was a welcomed treat to be able to board and explore without an admission fee. The crew were friendly and made the visit even more pleasant.
