Open year round. Choose between a beautiful chalet, a magical yurt, a tranquility dome, cozy lodge room, tipi, or a campsite. Cabot Shores is the perfect base camp to explore Cape Breton and the Cabot Trial. But first, explore our great packages.
Incredible coastal vistas provide the backdrop to the abundant sea life found in the north Atlantic. You never know what may come up ‘out of the blue’! Whales, dolphins, seals, tuna, halibut, the ebb and flow of thousands of mackerel coming with the tides. The sea life is as breathtaking as the scenery.
You get a hint as you cross over on the Englishtown Ferry and join the Atlantic side of Cape Breton.
For wanderers who want to get up close and personal with nature, here is some of what’s waiting for you at Cabot Shores:
Whale Watch Excursions
Captain Cyril Fraser will be your guide to watching Humpbacks, Minkes, maybe a Pilot whale or two play in the ocean. But keep an eye overhead for eagles.
Puffin and Bird Tours
The only thing that tastes better than fresh lobster is fresh lobster you pulled out of the trap. Discover the long history of lobster fishing in Cape Breton aboard a working fishing boat.
Deep Sea Fishing
Spend the day on the water jigging for mackerel and many other kinds of fish. For more information or to arrange a tour, please talk to Dr. Paul.
Yolo Boards, Kayaks and Canoes
Do you enjoy hopping on a Yolo board (stand-up paddling) or jumping in a kayak or canoe on a whim? Then have at it. Cabot Shores has them all – costs are $37 to $40 for half a day (tax not included). Training is available at no extra cost.
Hooked? We have a package that includes a whale or puffin tour and half a day of canoe, kayak or SUP – find out here how to Make Summer Awesome.
