Kick up your heels to jigs and reels of bagpipers and fiddlers serenading your Cape Breton Island adventure. Dine seaside on lobster, then hop aboard a fishing boat for an exclusive Ceilidh at sea and local whisky tasting. You'll be dancing like a local in no time!

Meet up at the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique for delicious Cape Breton specialties of crabcakes and oatcakes, sparkling Nova 7 wine, and local craft beer before walking down the Celtic Shores Coastal Trail for an afternoon of ocean side music, food and fun!

Keep the beat with the fiddle as you try some steps, hear Cape Breton stories, and have fun pronouncing Gaelic phrases with your local guide and Celtic culture insider, Chrissy Crowley. A beautiful lobster dinner awaits, overlooking the ocean and fishing wharf. Savour homemade seafood chowder, lobster and delicious blueberry bread pudding with caramel sauce—our house specialty!
