Bedford Basin Yacht Club


Marina berths available

Bedford Basin Yacht Club was established in 1953 at the head of the Bedford Basin in Bedford. At the time it was a cottage community on the outskirts of Halifax. The cold fog that often envelopes Halifax Harbour seldom makes its way all the way up the Basin hence, the location has earned the nickname as Sunnyside and Summer Cove
