What To Do In SYDNEY, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA l CRUISE VLOG l Ep. 18 – Sydney Video

Time for us to get off the Norwegian Gem in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and get on our bus for our shore excursion! I booked this tour through Norwegian Cruise Line though this tour is offered through most cruise lines! The tour is called, “HEART OF THE ISLAND” and here is the tour description from NCL’s website:

“Ciad Mile Failte” – a hundred thousand welcomes await you! Nova Scotia is Latin for New Scotland and nowhere is this more evident than on Cape Breton Island. This picturesque excursion takes you to the very heart of the island. You’ll see some of the Island’s most dynamic scenery, weaving a route through rugged countryside, touching the shores of the famous Bras d’Or Lakes. Known as the “Great Inland Sea”, as the lakes are salt water, this region is a major breeding ground for bald eagles and other wildlife.

As your tour progresses, you’ll stop at the center of Cape Breton Island, Hectors’ Point, Iona and visit the Nova Scotia Highland Village, a 50 acre historical site overlooking the Bras d’Or Lakes. Take a journey through 180 years of Cape Breton’s Scottish architecture, hosted by costumed staff, trained in conversational Gaelic and local history. Here, you’ll view a full size replica of a Scottish Blackhouse, a one room structure occupied by the first Scottish settlers in the region and the only one of its kind in North America. A hilltop panoramic view offers a beautiful blend of land, sky and water. Enjoy tea or coffee and oatcakes before returning to your ship.”

As always, make sure to watch in HD for the best video quality! Hope you enjoy! 🙂

  1. ok I see mud and water be careful.

  2. When did you go to Peggy’s Cove? That was the only part of Nova Scotia that I saw! I’m looking forward to to your tour of the Bay of Fundi!! Hope you also got to see the sea caves!

  3. Loved your pronunciations! 😀 😉

  4. We did that tour in October and it was freezing. I was so happy to step into the buildings with fires going!

  5. Hi Scott when we did this cruise and stopped in Sydney we rented a car for the day and went to the Miner's Museum and the to Alexander bell Museum both were excellent and then returned the car before getting on the ship. It was cheaper this way for us than with ship tours……..Loved your video

  6. Scott Takes a Stroll Back in Time – and Talks with the Animals. Nice place. I liked this tour a lot as I find it fascinating how our ancestors lived their lives. They were very hardy and hard working people. Thanks for another great video.

  7. I’ve never seen anyone wear their sunglasses with the arms over the outside of their beanie and not under their beanie lol, that’s Scott for you 🤣🤣
