BUCCANEER BAYAn Historical Experience
Step back in time to the 17th &18th Centuries.
Would you like to time travel into the past, back to the early colonial period in North America?
Have you ever dreamed of being part of an event that took place 300+ years ago?
Have you ever wondered how people lived so long ago when the colonies were still young?
Would you like to be part of history rather than just an observer?
Have you ever searched for a genuine buried treasure left by pirates?
You can do all this and much more at Buccaneer Bay.
A view from one of the small inlets of Buccaneer Bay, (to be developed soon),with 2 treasure islands in the distance.
In the Maritime province of Nova scotia, on the east coast of Canada, legends and history
abound with tales of early explorers, settlements, fortresses, fierce battles, privateering, and piracy.
Evidence of early settlements are still being unearthed, and
buried treasure is still sought after today, on our islands and harbors.
Nova scotia has numerous historic sites dating from 1605, however, none of them offer the
visitor a chance to become part of the surroundings and interact with the site.

or two, or for those more adventurous, we have an area where you can set up your
own tent just outside the village.
You can dine at a 17thC styled inn, and later on, walk along the unpaved
colonial streets, admiring the correctly styled buildings.
Visit a colonial bakery, a dry goods store, black smith shop, our fortress/museum,
or relax on our warf.
You can participate in historical demonstrations or reenactments and mingle
with our period suited staff.
Take a walk thru our wilderness trails at your leisure, and admire the lush
exotic flora, or take a wagon ride and tour our back woods roads, (but
beware of highwaymen and pirates).
Take a tour of our early Acadian farm and offer your assistance tending the
garden and livestock, or visit our early Micmac,(Mi'kmaq), village display.
Enjoy the wildlife, (deer, owls, rabbit, herons, sea gulls, turtles, etc.), that
abound in our secluded historical retreat.
We offer fishing excursions, or you may take part in a chartered boat
"tour of discovery" to the local islands.

**Maybe you would like to take part in a genuine pirate treasure hunt.**
At night, enjoy the quiet sight of the sunset over the atlantic, take a walk along
the shore, or visit a local camp fire.
Leave all the noise and stress of 21st century life behind. Breathe the fresh salt
air and relax in our little corner of the world, that is the same today as it would
have been over 300 years ago.
This is a place where radios, TV's, and cars are not heard. The only sounds you
may hear are voices of staff and visitors, wildlife, and maybe the occasional boom
of a cannon or blunderbuss.
This is the closest you may ever get to experiencing first hand, the early days in our history.

the coast to a site indicated on a treasure map. Hopefully you will find the land
marks on the map.
