Meet Fiji and Tigress, Picton Castle’s Honourary Deck Hands

Picton Castle has two purr-tty special crew members. Their names are Fiji and Tigress. Fiji is a 6-year-old domestic short hair, who you guessed it, was born on the island of Fiji deep in the South Pacific Ocean. Tigress is a tabby cat from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia-Picton Castle’s homeport.

She’s kind of a big deal

A chat with the Captain of the Bluenose II 

When Bluenose II confirmed their attendance at our 2019 festival, we were so excited we almost fell overboard. The fishing and racing schooner from Nova Scotia is no ordinary vessel. To explain why, we need to go back to the Atlantic seaboard in the early 1900’s, when her story began.


Attention crew! The tall ships are BACK!
