After languishing for a number of years in Toronto, the Tall Ship Caledonia is on the move again, this time back east. The Ship was converted in 2008 by Canadian Sailing Expeditions as a cruise vessel, but the venture never really got off the ground, and the ship was re-possessed by Caterpillar Financial. the ship was moved to freshwater from Lunenburg in 2012.
