This warship, primarily designed to detect enemy submarines during the Cold War, was a project at the vanguard initiated by National Defence Canada. This water vehicle alone combines a semi-submarine semi-ship profile, is equipped with aviation technology through its DC-8 motors, and is designed to skim over the water’s surface.

Experiencing this hydrofoil is a 30-minute long visit that plunges you into a special-mission military atmosphere. Seeing the Bras d’Or 400 is like boarding an aircraft, finding yourself in a submarine and then taking a deep breath of fresh air at sea from the rear deck of a ship.
