Harbour Highlights: The Loyalist Period

Pristine Guysborough Harbour is crammed packed with history. The first settlers to Nova Scotia set up camp here in the 1600's. World explorers visited. Tall ships, many constructed right here on the shores of Guysborough Harbour, carried trade goods, soldiers and pioneers to a new life of freedom. In the wake of the American Revolutionary war, loyalists took up the offer of land grants and settled on the shores of the Harbour, building a thriving community that was one of the province's economic engines of prosperity. Hear their stories, and peruse their photos. Interpreted by the Guysborough Historical Society. And all this from the comfort of a 32 foot sailing yacht. Afterwards, see and touch the artifacts they left behind at the Guysborough Museum. Then enjoy an authentic period menu of tasty meals at Guysborough's Days Gone By Restaurant and Antiques. This cruise also includes Sail Canada's "Introduction to Boating" certification. July 16, July 21, August 6, August 18, 2019.
