What time of year is best to go and what time of year is best to avoid?

Francois, thanks, I've saved your advice for when I get Canadian charts to do the final route planning.

John, the big-picture weather trends are (1) fog in the Maritimes until mid summer, and (2) stronger winds in the Northeast in early fall. Both can slow you down quite a bit if they persist for many days, as they can do at these times.

the other loop

Hi to anyone planning cruise east of Quebec City to maritimes.After you round Gaspe peninsula heading east there are several lobster wharves and a few marinas on the south side of PEI.Also some on north side of NB and you are clear sailing east to the passage between Cape Breton and NS.There you can easily enter the lakes or turn right toward Halifax.Be sure to stop over in PEI,which is not like any other maritime province.
