The Lighthouse Route begins at one of Nova Scotia's most photographed lighthouse, the Cape Forchu Lightstation. With over 160 Lighthouses in Nova Scotia, the most of any other province in Canada, they have become a shared symbol of our culture! We offer a Museum, Gift Shop, Leif Erikson Park with walking trail and Interpretative panels, guided tours by reservation, picnic tables, courtesy cart, public washrooms, parking for all types of vehicles. Bring your camera! Open daily 9-5, June to September, weather permitting.
One of the more interesting Lighthouses we have visited. Cape Forchu Lightstation is unique in shape and the grounds are pleasant to walk around. There are plenty of photo ops as well as a small museum and snack bar. You can go inside to see...MoreThank you for the lovely review and for visiting the Cape Forchu Lighthouse.

Step across the threshold and back in time at the W. Laurence Sweeney Fisheries Museum. Explore the Sweeney marine heritage through unique exhibits: a simulation of a traditional fishing wharf, complete with fishing, processing and ship repair sheds, wharf decks and even a coastal freighter.
Adults would appreciate this museum honoring the seafaring past of Mr. Sweeney. Exhibits are hands-on and appear "just like they left them". The craftsmanship in the detail of the 2/3 scale replica of a period Coastal Freighter was incredible and children (and adults) can climb aboard and marvel at the tight quarters. Donna and Larry were excellent docents. Well worth the $3 admission for a one-hour trip back in time.

Frost Park is a small and well kept park in downtown Yarmouth. It was the town cemetary for many years but became too small so most of the interned were moved to the new cemetary. There are some graves and markers that are still there. The town uses the park for community events and it is especially nice around Christmas. There are places to sit and look out over the harbour and lots of nice shade trees for keeping cool in the summer.

On paper, I thought this museum would be boring, but it was not. they had old fire engines and pumpers, you could almost see the firefighters working the pump handles. Some of that equipment was really complex. They even had a wooden fire plug.

The fastest way to get from Maine to Nova Scotia is The CAT. The new high-speed ferry service runs from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. You'll experience the Maritimes the way they're meant to be seen - by sea! The CAT is fast, with a crossing time of just 5.5 hours. Wouldn't you rather spend less time driving and more time discovering? With onboard amenities and knowledgeable staff and crew, The CAT offers passengers an enjoyable ride to their destination.
Previously traveled on the Nova Star, that ceased operations and The Cat was back. First clue, my BF and I booked but separate Reservations only due to timing. I received a call that the time of the Ferry was changed but still on the same day. Then he received a call that there was no Ferry on our scheduled day to return so we could either shorten our trip or extend it another day. Yes, we had to scramble to find another night of accommodation and change our work schedules last minute. Not impressed on how we were notified. Then the day of departure (we knew one engine was out) the CAT struggled with timing and lost more power coming into Portland. Yes, I guess we were lucky to get across as the rest of the scheduled crossings were completely cancelled. The Ferry was comfortable, dining options, and ok if they get their act together. Still for the inconvenience the price was not worth it. We will seek other options if we travel back.

I had read about this stop in a guide book; but hadn't planned on stopping 'til we were riding our bicycles right by it and I remembered. We wandered onto the property. It was late June. They were prepping 'seed' traps'... don't quote me on the term... used to 'catch' seed oysters that they'll grow... in 'bout 3 years... to full size. The place seems wicked small... yet, they have something like 4 million oysters in the farm and they harvest something like 1/2 a million a year. We didn't go out on the boat... and I sorta regret not doing that. The farmer/owner spent a ton of time with us showing us around and didn't charge us one cent. Wicked nice guy.

This home has belongings from three of Prim Fuller's family. The tour guide was knowledgeable. I remember the Fuller "brush man" coming to our home when I was growing up and 60 years later, we still have some Fuller Brushes in our home, so it was fun to learn more about the history of the company.
