Ye Olde Halifax Tour

Peggy's Cove

Port : Halifax 
Maximum Persons Per Tour : Six / If your party exceeds six then a quantity of two must be selected in the cart to dispatch two vehicles and two driver/guides.
As with all our excursions, nothing is fixed, and we can customize our shore excursions to suit each client's particular needs, requests and requirements.


Departing from the cruise ship dock we'll head to beautiful Point Pleasant Park on the Halifax peninsula where your guide will give aninformative talk regarding the past and present of this historic area of Halifax.


Leaving the park, we'll drive through the expensive residential area along the non-commercial part of Halifax Harbour known as the Northwest Arm, pass by two major local universities, St. Mary's and Dalhousie on our way to Halifax Public Gardens. Enjoy a stroll through the finest example of formal Victoria Gardens to be found in North America and perhaps sample hand-paddled ice cream while relaxing in this beauty spot.

Following our walk, we'll drive to the "top of Halifax" for a spectacular photo opportunity at Halifax Citadel. The Citadel is the reason for the founding of Halifax in 1749.


As we leave the Citadel and meander down to the harbour, we will pass a number of historic sites along the way. Our route will take us by the naval dockyard area, under both Harbour bridges and past the site of the 1917 Halifax Explosion,on our way to visit theTitanic Cemetery. Here, you will see the grave sites (and perhaps hear some stories) of the Titanic victims and learn of the Halifax connection to this 1912 maritime tragedy.


Following a refreshment stop, we'll make our way to the "place where time began", passing by the only remnant of the Mont Blanc, one of two ships involved in the 1917 Halifax explosion. Following a brief stroll,we'll make our way to the area of the first White Star Line disaster.

The White Star's luxury steamship S.S. Atlantic ran into Mar's Head at Lower Prospect on April 1, 1873 - It appears April was an unlucky month for the White Star Line! This was the worst single vessel disaster to occur in Canadian waters prior to the Titanic. Five hundred and sixty-two people lost their lives that day, but 390 were saved due to the efforts of the local fishermen and their families.

We'll visit the Interpretation Center, the mass burial site, stroll the boardwalk which wraps around the coastline, and perhaps rest at the gazebo to bask in the magnificent view. Prior to leaving, we'll tour this scenic and authentic fishing community.

We'll stop in West Dover for lunch (at your own expense) in a restaurant which one of our guests remarked "has good food, scenery and prices!" While in this fishing community, we'll stroll along the wharf and savor the panoramic view of Peggy's Cove and the gorgeous coastline.

As we near Peggy's Cove, you'll experience the dramatic changing topography and enjoy numerousvistas of the Atlantic Ocean and its scenic inlet's and coves. We'll spend some time exploring the "most visited place in Canada" and two other nearby attractions, the "swimming hole" and "deGarth Memorial".


Our return route will take us along the shoreline of historic Saint Margaret's Bay, an area noted for its stories of religion, rum-running, bootlegging and connection to NASA, just to name a few! We'll stop for photo opportunities at Hackett's Cove and if you wish, visit the Swiss AirFlight 111 Memorial.


We'll to return to your ship via a different route with, if time allows, a brief stop at an Acadian Maple Productretail store so you can find the perfect gift to take home. We'll ensure you return to ship on time.
