Legends of Bluenose Walking Tour

It’s everything Bluenose and it’s all right here! Learn why Bluenose was crowned Queen of the North Atlantic, and how she became our nation’s sailing ambassador with her image forever etched on our Canadian dime. Toast the fishing and racing legend with a taste of Bluenose rum.


Your walking excursion includes a stroll along our famous working waterfront, a stop at Ironworks Distillery, and a day pass to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic - home to an unsurpassed collection of Bluenose memorabilia. Please note: Harbour cruise aboard Bluenose II is NOT included.


Tour starts at 70 Bluenose Dr. directly across from the Fisheries Museum parking lot (look for our Lunenburg Walking Tours sidewalk sign). You'll soak up the sights and sounds of our colourful waterfront. Our knowledgeable guides will lead you to Ironworks Distillery, the original location of Thomas Walters and Son Blacksmith Shop, where the ironwork for Bluenose was crafted. Finish at the Big Boat Shed in the famous Smith & Rhuland Shipyard, birthplace of both Bluenose and Bluenose II.


With a full museum pass included, make it a day-long family adventure allowing time for dining, shopping, and exploring the home of Canada’s national icon, the Bluenose.
