15 Minutes off the Cabot Trail
at the Top of Cape Breton Island

From the Canso Causeway: Follow the Trans Canada highway (105) to the Cabot Trail, and then turn left. Take the Cabot Trail to Cape North and then go off the Cabot Trail and take the Bay St. Lawrence road approximately 19 km (12 miles) north to the Bay St. Lawrence Wharf parking area.

From Sydney: Follow Route 125 to Exit 1W, then take highway 105 toward Baddeck. Turn off at Englishtown or St. Ann’s and follow the Cabot Trail to Cape North. You will leave the Cabot Trail in Cape North and drive North along the Bay St. Lawrence Road approximately 19km (12 miles) to the Bay St. Lawrence wharf parking area.

Some Tips:

*Don’t use our postal code because our rural area is too wide and confusing for some GPS.

*If you miss our shop, don’t worry the road continues for a few steps to a beautiful ocean view of Bay St. Lawrence and you can turn around and find us.

*The old fashioned way to find us is to go on the Cabot Trail, head to the top turn on to Bay St. Lawrence Road and drive straight until you find boats.
