  Port Map

Sydney, Canada is situated on the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island, north-eastern Nova Scotia. Cape Breton's craggy coast has been carved through the ages by the Northumberland Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. On this remote Nova Scotia isle, picturesque valleys and massive rolling hills still harbour Gaelic speaking descendants of Acadian French and Scottish settlers.Sydney (Nova Scotia, Canada) cruise port

Located in a coal-producing region of great importance, Sydney is a major industrial area and a seaport on Sydney Harbour. The community, settled in early 1780s by United Empire Loyalists, is christened in honour of British statesman Thomas Townshend, Firstst Viscount Sydney. It served as Cape Breton Island's capital between 1784-1820, and then after the isle became part of Nova Scotia Province.

In 2016, a total of 99,370 cruise passengers visited Sydney AU, boosting the local economy with AUD 22,9 million. In January 2017 started the construction works on the Sydney Harbour's second cruise ship berth (read more in the terminal section below).

In 2017, cruise port Sydney NS had its biggest season ever. The number of scheduled cruise ship calls was 90 carrying over 135,000 passengers - or 67% increase over 2016. The port's projected budget was nearly 1/2 of its revenue - CAD 936,000 from passenger tax. The 2017 season started on April 30 with the Holland America Line's ship ms Veendam.

On January 22, 2017, started the construction of Sydney Harbour's second cruise ship berth. Works on this AUD 20 million project are expected to take up to 18 months to complete. The second berth project was equally funded by the Canadian government's all three levels (federal, provincial and municipal).

The new berth has length of 287 m (942 ft) and will allow docking of larger ships in the harbour - like Cunard's RMS Queen Mary 2. The projections are for doubling the port's cruise business.

As part of the new project, upgrades will be also done to the existing Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion.
