Tillicum has returned to her home on the river! She is moored on the LaHave River accessed by 2 minute dinghy ride. Feeling adventurous or romantic? Wishing to go sailing? We have a 2 night minimum request to better enjoy the river and opportunities on board and in the area. Book a 3 night adventure. Try our Pirate Pizza! Take time to book a cruise. Please remember this is similar to glamping. You will need to be comfortable being in a small boat to get back and forth to Tillicum on your own.

The space
Tillicum is a west coast built wooden schooner who has traveled thousands of miles to reach Nova Scotia. You will travel by dinghy (1 minute) to reach the mooring. You will need to be agile to enter into the dinghy and exit up ladders and manage ladders aboard. Once there, a dinghy will be left with you for easy access to land or touring. Her interior is warm and cozy, and there is a toilet, fridge, and stove. If you are over 6"1" you will have to duck and bend a bit.
PLEASE REMEMBER - THIS EXPERIENCE INCLUDES A BOAT, MOTOR, SLEEPING ON A SCHOONER, AND ALL GAS INCLUDED. THIS EXPERIENCE CANNOT BE FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THIS PRICE. No need to worry about sea-sickness, as we are far enough away from the ocean so there is no rocking or rolling from the waves! If showering is needed, there is a large solar shower on board.
YOU MAY WISH TO TRY THE 3 NIGHT OPTION. THIS INCLUDES PIRATE PIZZA, AN OVERNIGHT IN RIVERPORT, EXPLORATION OF MUSEUMS AND OTHER ISLANDS, AND LUNCH AT THE LAHAVE YACHT CLUB. PLEASE ASK US ABOUT THIS TRUE MARITIME EXPERIENCE. Cost is $250 per person, which includes transportation, mooring fees, captain for the cruising, and Pirate Pizza the first night.
Perhaps you have booked for several nights, then you will be able to shower at the main house. There are cooking facilities aboard ( even refrigeration). We have a guest suite in the house if you are needing space for more than 2 or 3 aboard, and this can be booked at the same time. Check out Super Special Captain's Quarters.

Where you’ll be

Upper LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

We are on the LaHave river, and have a very quaint community of houses and boats. There are trails for hiking,roads for cycling, lakes for swimming. The trees are beautiful and the scents from the flowers are hypnotic. Sunsets and sunrises are the best times. Wildlife is visible, with ospreys, eagles, seals, and a variety of smaller birds, too. Feel like exploring? Go ahead and take the dinghy out on the river or a kayak!

My husband and I have recently moved to Nova Scotia after having lived in several Canadian Provinces, taught school in China, and travelled by wooden schooner to Nova Scotia from Vancouver. We love to meet up with people and make new friends wherever we go. We like music, the outdoors, the water, boats, sunrises and sunsets, and peaceful times on a lake. We ask questions, like to find out what is going on locally, and eat fresh, local food. Our budget is generally on the low side when travelling, but our hopes and energies are high!

During your stay

Need directions to special locations? We are happy to give directions to restaurants, grocery stores, and the NSLC. In the mood for Pizza? We have the best Pirate Pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. Please book this ahead of your visit. We can also take you out sailing on the river for a small extra charge. It is important to have your own transportation to get here, but once here there is dinghy rowing, dinghy sailing, and walking. Come up to the house and take out our pedal boat or cook on our bbq and take your food back to Tillicum. Of course there is hanging out on the deck - especially watching the sunset!
