Nestled along the breathtaking coastline of Inverness, Nova Scotia, the Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club stands as a haven for golf enthusiasts. With its world-class courses and stunning natural beauty, reaching this golfing paradise can be an adventure in itself. In this blog, we will explore the three ways to get to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club, catering to different preferences and budgets. Whether you prefer a scenic road trip, a swift helicopter ride, or a combination of both, Cabot Cape Breton awaits.

Option 1: Driving from Halifax, NS Airport or Sydney, NS Airport

For those seeking a leisurely journey through picturesque landscapes, driving to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club is an excellent choice. This option allows you to explore the stunning sights of Nova Scotia at your own pace.

Renting a Car: Upon arrival at either the Halifax, NS Airport or the Sydney, NS Airport, you can rent a car from one of the numerous rental agencies available. Prices for car rentals typically range from $200 to $400 per day, depending on the vehicle's size and rental duration. In recent years, we've noticed car rental companies significantly downsize their fleets - which can mean it's difficult to find an appropriate vehicle that will fit 4 passengers and all of the luggage and golf clubs. So if you are pursuing this option, be sure to book far ahead of your journey.

Travel Time: The approximate travel time from Halifax to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club is around 3.5 - 4 hours, covering a distance of approximately 300kms (or 200 miles). From Sydney, the journey takes approximately 2 hours and spans about 160 kilometers.

Cost Estimate: As most golfers will need a vehicle for 5 days in total (1 day for travel, 3 days while it sits un-used at the Cabot golf resort, and one more day for travel), average costs for this option considering the car rental, distance, fuel costs, and taxes, a round trip from Halifax to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club will cost approximately $1,500 - $2,500.

From Sydney, the cost would be slightly lower, but seeing as car rentals are generally the most expensive piece of the equation the price difference will only vary about $200 in the difference.

Option 2: Chartering a Private Helicopter

For those seeking a more luxurious and time-efficient mode of transportation, chartering a private helicopter offers a memorable and swift journey directly to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club. When chartering a flight with Breton Air, Cabot Cape Breton's exclusive choice for helicopter services, we'll drop you right by Hole #7 of the Cabot Links - one of Cabot Cape Breton's two world-class golf courses.

Charter Cost: The cost of chartering a helicopter to Cabot Cabot Breton will vary depending on what Maritime Canadian airport you're flying into and the number of passengers you're traveling with.

For a one-way trip from Halifax, Nova Scotia (the largest and most common touch-down option) to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club: You can expect prices to start around $1,750 CAD per person (based on a foursome traveling together). This rounds out to be about $1,290 + tax in USD. If you're only traveling as a couple, pricing will be a little more expensive - but the experience will be second to none!

For a one-way trip from Sydney, NS: Chartering a helicopter can be even more affordable with prices starting at $750 CAD (or $560 USD) per person (based on a foursome traveling together).

Flying into any Maritime Canadian airport is an option, all costs falling between these two price points. .

Travel Time: A helicopter ride from either airport to the Cabot Links golf course takes approximately 30 minutes (from Sydney, NS) to 1.5hrs (From Halifax, NS) offering breathtaking views of the coastline and surrounding landscapes. This will be a highlight of your trip!

Chartering a helicopter is an incredible and affordably competitive option (compared to renting a vehicle) that will save you time and give you the experience of a lifetime! Since Cabot Cape Breton's resort is fitted with all of the luxuries you'll need during your stay, there's no need to have a rental car on site.

Option 3: Chartering a Helicopter One-Way, with Luxury Shuttle Service Return

This option combines the convenience of a helicopter journey with the comfort of a ground shuttle service for the return trip, providing a seamless experience from start to finish.

Charter & Return Shuttle Cost: The charter cost for this option is similar to Option 2, ranging from $750 to $1,750 CAD per person (based on a foursome traveling together) for a one-way trip from your preferred Maritime airport to Cabot Cape Breton Golf Club (or $560 - $1,290 USD). Adding on a return shuttle to your preferred airport in our luxury passenger van is extremely affordable, ranging from $175 - $350 CAD per person depending on your final destination (based on a foursome traveling together).
