Swim the Canal: Far from Ordinary…. Be Extraordinary.


Our forth annual “Swim the Canal” event has become an extraordinary community tradition of fun, festivities and celebration.

There are two swim options either swim the length or the width of the canal.

  1. Length – we swim 800 meters in the world-famous Bras d’Or Lake through the St. Peter’s Canal National Historic Site, ending at Battery Provincial Park beach on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. ,
  2. Width – we swim 100 meters from Battery Park to the canal wall and back

All swimmers receive a t-shirt to acknowledge their accomplishment. Swimmer info available here.

Be one of the growing list of extraordinary individuals that can say…… they swam the length of a historic canal!
