We are a  family owned Tour Operator business. Sean Newman emigrated with his family from England  to Cape Breton in 2012.

We were drawn to cape Breton by its rich natural beauty, rugged coast line and spectacular scenery.

The more we learn about this Island the more we feel absorbed in the rich culture & heritage it holds. 

A decision to develop Blue Thistle Tours was made in order to share with visitors some of the magical destinations we have experienced exploring this Island.

We offer tours that provide a locals perspective and a personal touch, all our photographs on this site capture our own experiences exploring this beautiful Island.

If you are lucky you may get an unexpected glimpse of a wild animal, be it a whale, an eagle or moose, always an exciting prospect and privilege to behold.
