Nova Scotia ~ Islands, Water, Adventure

Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces, and one of the four provinces that form Atlantic Canada. Nova Scotia, which includes Cape Breton Island has over 3,800 coastal islands and a whopping 13,000 plus km of coastline. You can see why most of the population lives and works in a coastal community. The sea is part of the culture of Nova Scotia.

The province’s mainland is the Nova Scotia peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, including numerous bays and estuaries. Cape Breton Island, separated from the Nova Scotia peninsula by the Strait of Canso, is connected by the long rock-fill Canso Causeway which has a canal for ships to pass through on the island side.

The famous scenic Cabot Trail runs around the coastline of Cape Breton Island.
