Hop on the Tancook Island ferry in Chester and travel to this picture-perfect island located 9.5 km (6 mi) off mainland Nova Scotia.  Stroll the peppery sand of Southeast Cove Beach, search for fossils near the wharf, peddle or hike your way around the island and see why birdwatchers, artisans and photographers flock here.
