The Perfect Stopover on Your Epic Nova Scotia Roadtrip...
How do you prefer to travel? Are you an epic roadtrip, always on the go, don't stop 'till you've seen everything there is to see kind of adventurer?
Or are you a get up late, take it slow, stop and smell the roses kind of wanderer?
Are you determined to eventually explore every nook and cranny of Nova Scotia - no matter how long it takes - or just looking to get a feel for the place?
Do you just have the one week and want to sample a little bit of everything that Nova Scotia has to offer?...then Pictou makes a perfect stopover on your way from PEI to Cape Breton (and vice versa!). We're only 10 minutes from the ferry terminal, 90 minutes from the causeway to Cape Breton Island and only 75 minutes from the Airport (76 minutes if there's traffic!)
Got a little more vacation time? Then Pictou is a great spot to settle in and establish a comfy and convenient homebase. Get a slower start to your day and choose one of several daytrips we'll be happy to recommend.
Want to wander down to the beach and dip your toes in the warmest waters north of the Carolinas and then while away the rest of the day laying under a shady tree , reading a book and counting the waves. We've even got portable lawn chairs you can borrow! Come back home at the end of your day to a cool drink on your balcony.
The Evening Sail is located in the historic harbour town of Pictou, Nova Scoti. We are a short stroll to the downtown waterfront area with the Hector Heritage Quay, the Northumberland Fisheries Museum, the deCoste Centre - with traditional ceilidhs three nights a week in the summer - and the one-of-a-kind Lobster Hatchery, as well as quirky shops and eateries.
