Recommended Cruising Guides to Atlantic Canada

Reading Time: < 1 minute

CCA Guides

The Cruising Club of America publishes cruising guides to Nova Scotia, The Gulf of St. Lawrence, Labrador and Newfoundland.

We use these guides, all of them edited by cruising friends of ours who have deep first-hand experience of the coast from the US border to Cape Chidley, the northern tip of Labrador.

Highly recommended.

Peter Loveridge’s Guide

We also like and use Peter Loveridge’s Cruising Guide to Nova Scotia, which can be purchased as an ebook directly from the author.

Peter’s guide is particularly complete and useful when cruising the western end of Nova Scotia, as well as the Bay of Fundy, which is not surprising given that he lives in the area and has cruised it for decades.

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for 25 years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 20 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
