Located on Eastern Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, the city of Louisburg is home to the historic jewel, the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Sail down the west coast of Newfoundland and across the Cabot Strait to Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, home of the famous fortress of Cape Breton. Named by French military forces after Louis XIV of France, the harbour has been used by Europeans since the late 1500s. While the Fortress of Louisbourg, which depicts life here in the 1700s, is the main attraction, the town of Louisbourg and its surrounding beaches and forests are also worth a visit.

The voyage from Corner Brook to Louisburg is 5 days. We expect to be 3 days at sea.

Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Corner Brook is the second largest city in Newfoundland, with a population exceeding 20,000. Corner Brook is located at the mouth of the Humber River, one of the best salmon rivers in the world. The Humber was first charted by Captain James Cook who traveled up the river in 1767 while beginning to map Newfoundland. One of the province's first sawmills was built here in 1894, and today the city now has one of the world's largest integrated pulp & paper mills.

Stroll one of Corner Brook's many groomed walking trails or visit the Captain James Cook Monument and bask in the sun setting over the Bay of Islands. Step back in time at the Corner Brook Museum and Archives or the Railway Society of Newfoundland Historic Train Site. Explore the downtown area and discover unique gifts and crafts.

3 Days at Sea
Sailing without port stops to distract.

Louisburg, Nova Scotia
Louisbourg is situated on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. Before the American Revolution the French had a stronghold in Nova Scotia, and a fort at Louisbourg, at the gateway to the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes. The fort was built there in part to protect the French cod fishing industry.

In 1745, a militia of four thousand New Englanders made their way up to Louisbourg and took the fort. The taking of Louisbourg shocked the European world. French citizens of the city were shipped back home and eventually the fortress was destroyed by the British.

In the 1960s the Canadian government began a project to rebuild the historic fortress as it had looked in 1744. This history tourism site is not to be missed.
