Tancook Island is a unique community located approximately 6 miles off Chester, Nova Scotia. Here, vibrant artistry, a pristine natural environment and a history deeply rooted in fishing traditions intertwine. Leave your cares on the mainland and take a relaxing hour-long ferry ride to visit us across beautiful Mahone Bay — or feel welcome to sail into our protected cove and stay awhile. Enjoy hiking, biking, or beach combing for sea glass and shells.
Take a walk to our museum where you will discover stories of days gone by. Visit Wishing Stones Studio & Gallery and peruse the stunning work of our nature photographers or watch chair caning and traditional rug hooking at Popplerock, our co-operative of island artists. Come experience the Island, a place where time moves differently.
