Blessed with a pristine beach stretching over three kilometres (two miles), an ocean with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas, and nearby lakes and rivers like the awe-inspiring Bras d’Or Lake and Margaree River, Inverness is as renowned for its variety of adventures on the water as it is for the golf at Cabot Links. So, in between tee times, make a splash with these local water activities and see why Nova Scotia is “Canada’s Ocean Playground”. And discover why this stunning geography is, in large part, the reason many of our guests return again and again. For more information or assistance booking your next excursion, please reach out to our Reservations Team.
When we’re not on Cabot’s courses, we love nothing more than heading down to Inverness Beach and enjoying Cape Breton’s beautiful summer weather. If you’d like to hit the beach, we’d be happy to help with transportation and activities, or whip up a delicious picnic of your choice. Good friends, good food, good times: the best way to spend a day…other than on the golf course.

Wave to the anglers as you paddle with the gentle flow of the river through salmon pools, past the Gaspereau traps, and along lush farmlands en-route to Margaree Forks. An experienced, knowledgeable guide will help you along the way while giving you a brief history of the area we love so much
