Silversea Expedition Cruises À BADDECK

BADDECK

Baddeck is the most highly developed tourist center in Cape Breton. Situated at the start of the famous Cabot Trail, the town of 1,064 inhabitants enjoys an international reputation as a fine resort. Baddeck has long been associated with the great inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who built a home here in 1885; it is still owned by his family. While traveling by steamer through the Bras d’Or Lakes, Bell was captivated by the region’s scenic beauty. View more

One of Baddeck’s most notable attractions includes the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, featuring the accomplishments of the famed inventor. The resort is the main town on Bras d’Or Lakes. The area surrounding Baddeck, with steep mountains, rocky inlets and dense forests, is often compared to the Scottish Highlands. The Bras d’Or Lakes, a vast, almost-landlocked inlet of the sea, attracts people from all over the world to cruise the serene, unspoiled coves and islands. Many of the early settlers of this part of Nova Scotia actually came here from Scotland; their cultural heritage has been retained in many ways. St. Ann’s is the home of North America’s only Gaelic College, and the Nova Scotia Highland Village provides insight into Highland Scots’ way of life. Pier Information The ship will be docked at the main pier. Most of Baddeck is within easy walking distance. A few taxis are available for trips further afield. Shopping Regional handicrafts are found in upscale gift shops and art galleries. The currency is the Canadian dollar. Cuisine Lobster and seafood are a good choice, as are dishes with a Scottish flavor. There are a number of restaurants to choose from. Other Sites Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site The site is a tribute to the great inventor who spent his summers in Baddeck and is buried on the mountain top above his mansion. About 1/4 mile from the pier up on the hillside, the museum features three exhibit halls that tell the story of Bell’s incredible life and work, including a display about the invention of the telephone. People of all ages find visiting here an entertaining and educational experience. Following the Silversea Experience there will be a shuttle service available between the pier and the Museum. The entrance fee is $2.50 per person. Gaelic College About 12 miles away at St. Ann’s is the home of North America’s only Gaelic College, with the Great Hall of the Clans and a Scottish gift shop. Bell Bay Golf Club This new world-class course, located a short distance beyond the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, should be in full operation by the time the Silver Cloud calls at Baddeck. Guests interested in playing may inquire with the Tour Manager on board about details and advance reservations. The Cabot Trail This 184-mile-long highway is named after John Cabot, the great navigator and explorer who fist sighted Cape Breton Island in 1497. It is noted for its exceptional natural beauty. The tour of the Cabot Trail requires a minimum of 7 hours so we are unable to offer it during our stay in Baddeck.
