Whether you are interested in culinary, nature, history, crafts, golf or music, we can help with your ideal destination itinerary, starting with Fox Harb’r private winery tours and pontoon boat cruises.
PRIVATE WINE TOURS
Fox Harb’r private wine tours are hosted by our winemaking partner, Jost Vineyards, in neighbouring Malagash, Nova Scotia, which shares the same latitude as the acclaimed grape-growing regions of France, Italy and Germany. Nova Scotia’s largest and oldest operating winemaker, Jost Vineyards was officially licensed back in 1983 and now encompasses over 100 acres, including a circular tasting bar, built to resemble a large oak barrique.
Your guided, private tour of Jost Vineyards will introduce you to the fascinating process of growing and harvesting grapes and then developing, filtering and bottling wine. Scheduled public and Fox Harb’r event group winery tours are also offered.
PRIVATE BOAT TOURS
Cruise the dramatic coastline of the Northumberland Strait aboard the Fox Harb’r pontoon boat. This private boating tour gives you plenty of options and flexibility, from a one-hour tour to a three-hour or longer excursion. It’s a perfect photo opportunity; for extra atmosphere, book a sunset cruise time slot. We can also help with food & beverage options for your time on the water. If you love the ocean, don’t miss new Fox Harb’r sea kayak rental options too.
