Baddeck Bay

Before proceeding with our journey, we made a deliberate stop to explore Baddeck Bay, the very waters where Alexander Graham Bell constructed and conducted trials on his groundbreaking hydrofoil boats. We decided to anchor there for the night, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the historical significance of the area.

As morning dawned, we undertook a CTD cast. With this valuable data, we resumed our voyage, continuing our expedition along the scenic Lake Bras d’Or.

Goodbye, Baddeck!
