Inverness and the surrounding area is not just home to two of the world’s greatest golf courses. It also offers the largest concentration of Bluefin tuna in the world and some of the finest salmon fishing on Earth.

Go from the greens of Cabot to the beautiful blue waters of Atlantic Ocean or the Margaree River for yet another unforgettable Cape Breton experience. For more information or assistance booking a guide, please talk to our Reservations Team.

Salmon Fishing on the Margaree River

The world-famous Margaree River is truly an angler’s paradise—especially if you want to cast for Atlantic salmon that can ran range in size from 15 to 40 pounds. We’ll connect you with an experienced and knowledgeable local guide, who can give you instruction on the basics, depending on your level of experience, plus tips on the best pools and local flies.

Before the day on the Margaree starts, you can also visit The Margaree Fish Hatchery in Margaree Valley, which produces thousands of salmon and brook trout in support of the Margaree River. The season runs from June 1 to October 31. Travel time: 25 minutes each way; duration: half-day and full-day trips

Deep Sea Fishing

While the waters here boast a bounty of fish—including cod, mackerel, bass, and salmon to name a few—the northern coast of Nova Scotia is most notable for the largest concentration of Bluefin tuna in the world. Our tuna charters offer day trips to local fishing grounds, where you’ll have the opportunity to fight giant Bluefin tuna, through our catch-and-release program.

Dates vary from year to year, but generally the catch-and-release season runs from August 1 to October 31. Travel time: 5 minutes; duration: 8 hours
