Our 2016 Cruise will be on Sunday, September 4. Details here.

Our annual Tall Ship Cruise on the Empire Sandy (Canada's largest sailing ship) commemorates the historic voyage of pioneer ship "Hector" which arrived in Pictou, Nova Scotia in 1773. The Canadian Post Office (Canada Post) issued this eight-cent stamp in 1973 to mark the 200th anniversary of this event.

To give you an idea of what it's like to be with us on the Empire Sandy, here's a selection of photographs from some of our previous cruises. Click here for a video of our first cruise (1992).
