Bluenose 100th

Few things in Canada are more iconic than the legendary Bluenose. There is only one place to truly experience this piece of our nation’s history: right here in Lunenburg!


In celebration of the 100th anniversary of her launch in 1921, Lunenburg Walking Tours and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic are thrilled to bring you this special tour. You’ll discover the birthplace of Bluenose, learn about her fascinating history and her incredible triumphs.

Tour begins at the famous Smith & Rhuland shipyard, inside the Big Boat Shed (12 Burma Rd.) where it all began. Our guides will lead you along Lunenburg’s historic working waterfront, recounting the days when Bluenose sailed and fished from our port, while racing her way into the hearts of all Canadians. Following a level route, we’ll reach the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic for an exclusive tour, including a Bluenose model boat launch – a true delight for all ages!
