Sea, sun and fun


There's so much to see and do in and around Shelburne's Historic Waterfront. 


Take in live entertainment, hop on a boat tour, add to your life-list in this prime bird watching area, search out our lighthouses or just relax on one of many white-sand beaches.


Meet Nova Scotia's only lady cooper at work in the Shelburne Barrel Factory across from the Cooper's Inn on Dock Street.


View the Fishermen's Memorial on Dock Street dedicated to fishermen lost at sea. 


Stop by the Visitor Information Centre at the north end of the Heritage Distric on Dock Street, a short and pleasant walk along the waterfront from Shelburne's Museums for more suggestions.
