This guide was first published in 1950 and has been continuously updated and improved. The latest "Updated Edition" was launched in the Spring of 2022 and is currently available in bookstores, chandleries and online. Feedback from our retailers and readers has been very gratifying -- they are finding the improvements (many new chartlets) and new information very worthwhile.

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