Cape Breton Insider Tips

Admire Cape Breton from the water
There is nothing quite like admiring Cape Breton National Park from the water. Giving you an incredible view of the remote, rugged coastline, sea kayaking also provides the perfect opportunity for wildlife spotting. As well as coming across a whole host of exciting creatures in the water, you have the chance to observe some of the most interesting animals on land too, including puffin and moose.
When to go
Fall is the perfect time to visit this sublime national park, when the gold, orange and crimson hues of the season are in full bloom. Indeed, the kaleidoscope of colour created makes this the best time for keen photographers particularly. Outside of fall, it is best to travel after May to avoid showers. July and August are the warmest months in which to visit, while winter should be avoided.
