Nova Scotia Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station

Can anyone list, or point me to a link with a listing, the locations of the "Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station" in Nova Scotia. I am particularly interested in ones near the Bras d'Or Lake but would love to have the full list in case my route/plans change.

Re: Nova Scotia "Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station"

For arrivals in Canada,, the boat must arrive at a marine telephone reporting site, and the boat master must immediately call the Telephone Reporting Centre at 1-888-226-7277.

Thanks gord. That's what I was looking for.
Too bad the Nova Scotia list is in alphabetical order rather than geographic. Not immediately obvious from that information to tell where each station actually is along the coast.
I am guessing that "St. Peter's Lions Club Marina" is the primary one I was looking for.

St. Peter's Marina advertises itself as a premier destination on the Bras d'Or Lakes.

Here are the listed reporting sites for Nova Scotia. I have used the Yarmouth center but you may want to check on it because the ferry is no longer going into Yarmouth.

Re: Nova Scotia 'Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station'

Thanks, but now I am confused . . . as that listing is different than the one Gord linked to. For instance it does not show the "St. Peter's Lions Club Marina" station that gord's listing does. I am guessing this second list are the actual physical CBSA offices and gords is the telephone stations - does that sound correct?

On both listings it would have been really helpful if they would include some sort of location information, like a lat/long or even a town name in all the listings. From some of them its reasonably obvious but others (like the "Maritime Museum of the Atlantic") its not at all clear where it is. Yes, I can google it and discover it's in Halifax but it would not have been hard for them to include that in the form.

Re: Nova Scotia 'Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station'

St. Peter's is one of the entrances to Bras D'Or. It's a busy spot. The other entrance is up at Point Aconi. Louisbourg is up on Cape Breton shore. Canso is the eastern tip of the mainland. The Royal Cape Breton is up in Sydney.

I've only visited the area by land though. St. Peter's is where the bridge crosses over if I remember correctly.

Re: Nova Scotia 'Designated Marine Telephone Reporting Station'

St Peter's is the canal/lock into the Bras d' Or lakes. The marina is on the lake side of the lock. It is a fairly short walk over the road to the marina. Kinda up the hill, across the road, into the marina. I can't recall if there is a path along the canal/lock. I kinda think there is but I'm not sure.

When you come into the lock you tie up to await being locked through. They will also raise the bridge, hand operated.

I'm Canadian registry so I didn't have to go through the reporting in procedure.

And, to be clear, there are only two navigable entrances to the Bras d' Or, St. Peters and Big Bras d' Or, which is around Pt. Aconi. I think you would have to work at it to have to clear in at Sydney or any point East of St. Pete's.
