"Mini" Cabot Trail Shared Group Tour

The Cabot Trail is the "Crown Jewel" of Cape Breton Island. The 300 kilometre (186 mile) driving route offers spectacular coastal views, unspoiled natural beauty, encounters with wildlife, and warm hospitality in the Celtic and Acadian villages that dot the coastline. Although time constraints don't allow for the entire route to be travelled on a cruise excursion, we offer a "mini" tour that shows some of the best highlights with many look-off stops along the way.


  • Guided scenic tour from Sydney to either Ingonish or Cheticamp

  • Photo opportunities at St. Ann's Bay and Kelly's Mountain

  • Top rated scenic look-off points and "off the beaten path" locations

  • Break for Lunch

Duration: 5 - 8 hours (estimated)

Your guide will be waiting upon your scheduled arrival and will return you to your ship one hour prior to your departure. We ask that guests make their way off the ship as soon as reasonably possible so that your tour can get underway.
