Tidal Bay Wine Sail

About the Tour:

Tidal Bay is the first wine appellation for Nova Scotia and one-of-a-kind for North America. The name Tidal Bay was inspired by the influence of the sea on all of the wineries located across the province. This sail connects you to the beauty and power of the sea, and the products it shapes in Nova Scotia - namely, these stunning white wines. 

This two hour sail happens during the peak winds of the day for a thrilling wind-powered experience while you enjoy a locally made charcuterie board and guided tasting of three award-winning Tidal bays and the wineries that make them. 

Duration: 2 hours
