Our Signature Product
The Town of Yarmouth is the regional centre of South Western Nova Scotia. The Town's population of 7200 people literally doubles on weekdays with the influx of workers and students from surrounding areas.
The distinctive architecture within Yarmouth, old and new, and the parks and trails in Yarmouth show the pride we take in our community.
Whether you would like to stroll back through the centuries; clap your hands at a “Musique de la Baie” kitchen party; visit the award winning “Great Public Space” at Cape Forchu Lightstation; stop by an authentic “Smugglers Cove”; enjoy an old-fashioned “lobster boil” where you go as you are and enjoy the best tasting seafood in the world (our opinion); or be an “Acadian for a Day”.
These are just a few of the experiences that you will enjoy with Yarmouth Tours.
Tri-Star Charters Inc is pleased to offer the passengers arriving in Yarmouth aboard the Nova Star a shuttle service to their hotels in Yarmouth. We have a scheduled pickup from your hotel in the morning that will return you to the Yarmouth International Ferry Terminal in plenty of time to catch your cruise to Portland.
