Baddeck Light House & Kidston Island
Kidston Island is a lively place to be during the summer months. Residents and visitors alike take ferry boat from the Baddeck wharf, across to Kidston Island where you can while away the afternoon on the beach, enjoy a swim, take a stroll around the light house or on the walking trail around the island.
Cape Breton is home to hundreds of pairs of nesting bald eagles. We are able to see these wonderful birds on most of our tours. There are several nests that can be viewed from the boat. The eagles will usually circle the boat while we are sailing, because they know we will sometimes throw them a fish. As they dive into the water to retrieve the fish, it makes for incredible photo opportunities.
From the comfort of the Schooner Amoeba, you can enjoy the beautiful Baddeck shoreline and the lush trees and flowers. You get wonderful views of the Bell Museum, Bell Bay Golf Course, Alexander Graham Bell's mansion Beinn Bhreagh, the surrounding communities of Washabuck, and Boularderie Islands, Kempt Head and Spectacle Island (Bird Sanctuary).
