Bluenose Things to See, Do and Eat in Lunenburg, NS

By | October 26, 2021

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is home to the Bluenose II schooner. The original Bluenose was once the fastest fishing schooner in the world and is the pride of Canada, even being featured on the Canadian dime. In Lunenburg not only can you get the chance to see the replica Bluenose II in the summer months but there are so many other Bluenose related things to see, do and eat in Lunenburg.

Follow along with the ships schedule and find out when she is setting sail, then grab a boat and some friends and sail alongside her. Visit the Bluenose II Company Store and buy some awesome Bluenose souvenirs. While at the store buy some Bluenose themed food or other commemorative items and drinks from other shops around town. From Lunenburg rum cake and their Bluenose Street dark chocolate with sea salt to Laughing Whale Bluenose Brew Coffee, Peace by Chocolate chocolate bars, and even Bluenose 100 commemorative beer from Shipwright Brewing in collaboration with Garrison Brewing or by Lightship Brewing and Saltbox Brewing. Definitely don't forget the Bluenose Rum from Ironworks Distilling that distills their rum in the same blacksmiths building that first help build the Bluenose.

Be sure to also explore the traveling mobile Bluenose exhibit before heading to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. At the museum you can see the newly unveiled Angus Walters bust and many artifacts and pieces of history from the life of the Bluenose. While you are in Lunenburg you should also stay the night at the historic Victorian Gothic 75 year old Bluenose lodge. They have 12 rooms of various sizes and a lovely newly reopened dining room serving breakfast and dinner daily to guests and the public.
