What you can expect

Travel from Halifax directly to Lunenburg on the way back we stop in Peggy's Cove and Mahone Bay.

LUNENBURG

Our first stop is the Town of Lunenburg, founded in 1753 and is known as the fishing capital of the world as well as the home port of both the original, world famous fishing schooner, The Bluenose and it’s replica, The Bluenose II. The town has been designated a United Nations World Heritage Site, and was once visited by ABC’s Good Morning America. Noted for it’s unique architecture, Lunenburg has also served as the backdrop in the popular Jesse Stone CBS films of the week. It is also home to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.

Upon our arrival, we’ll have a brief orientation tour of the town including a stop to view the historic, 250 year old Gothic Revival style St. John’s Anglican Church. This lovely church was almost completely destroyed by a Halloween prank fire in 2001, but has since been completely and lovingly restored to it’s former grandeur. If you visit the church you will be able to view the church’s copy of the Vinegar Bible, so called because it contains a typographical error, substituting vinegar for vineyard in the Gospel of Luke. Printed in 1717 by John Baskett, this particular Bible - one of three with the typo - is older than Halifax.

Following our orientation, you will have time to explore this unique port on your own (approximately 45 minutes +/-).

MAHONE BAY

Once in Mahone Bay, there will be time to take photos and perhaps hunt for local retail treasures. It is a picture-perfect postcard town noted for it’s Three Churches, it’s extremely fine harbour that leads out into the Atlantic, and also for its speciality shops and eateries. Some say it is the romantic weekend get-a-way spot in Nova Scotia.

MAHONE BAY TO OAK ISLAND

Oak Island and hear the tale of it’s buried treasure while we drive to our next destination,

HUBBARDS

Hubbards, like many communities on the South Shore, was/is a successful fishing community. During the Cold War, it was home to naval radio station CFS Mill Cove, and is the birthplace of J.D. Shatford, a partner of John D. Rockefeller.

The village of Hubbards has more than ten white-sand beaches nearby and is a popular summer residence destination with numerous cottages, inns, campsites and restaurants. The Canadian television series Black Harbour was shot on location in Hubbards between 1996 and 1999. MAYBE W
