This is a Can't Miss schooner sailing tour on Bras d'Or lake out of Baddeck. Very informative narration of Bell's home there (Beinn Bhreagh). Excellent views of the lake and the occasional bald eagle.

The crew was very informative. This is the only way you can see the Alexander Bell Mansion. They even call out a wild eagle to fly by for a picture! Awesome!
