This guide was first published in 1950 and has been continuously updated and improved. A new edition for 2020 will be on bookstore and chandlery shelves by January 1st.  Look at this site for updates to the many harbors visited by contributors during the prior summer(s). 

The guide includes New Brunswick’s Southwest Coast and the entry to the Saint John River, the Bay of Fundy and the entire southern coast of Nova Scotia (from Cape Sable to the Canso and St. Peters Canals), plus the Bras d’Or Lakes and Cape Breton, as well as the fabled Sable Island. Nova Scotia is a province of scenic beauty and warm, welcoming citizens of many origins and languages. It has become an increasingly popular cruising ground for sailors and powerboaters from Canada, the United States, as well as European waters.
