The Port of Sydney is the ocean gateway to scenic CAPE BRETON ISLAND.  Sydney is a preferred destination for many prominent cruise lines.

With its gracious and proud people, rich Gaelic heritage and sweeping landscapes, a visit to the Port of Sydney on Cape Breton Island creates a spiritual awakening that is sure to captivate you and keep you longing to return.

To truly experience all that the island has to discover, take a shore excursion to the world-famous Cabot Trail, stroll through the year 1744 at the Fortress of Louisbourg, sail on the placid water of the Bras d’Or Lakes, visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum or taking in a traditional Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion. The Port of Sydney presents an opportunity for rewarding and diverse experiences.

Sydney is also home to the FIDHEAL MHOR A’ CEILIDH©, also known as the World’s Largest Fiddle. Get your picture taken next to this giant icon located at the cruise pavilion.
