Built in 1963, Bluenose II is an exact replica of the famed schooner Bluenose, which became a national icon when she raced undefeated for the International Fishermen’s Cup. Her namesake remains a symbol of the Grand Banks fishery, shipbuilding excellence and the seafaring history of our region.
Steeped in maritime tradition, Bluenose II is a must-see while visiting Nova Scotia. The schooner sails out of Lunenburg and Halifax for public harbour tours, and is open for free deck tours throughout the province when in port.
During summers, she visits ports all around Nova Scotia and the Eastern Seaboard. Check out our schedule (bluenose.novascotia.ca/schedule) to see where you can experience Bluenose II.
