  • Historic Halifax & Rms Titanic

    While touring the major landmarks of seaside Halifax, you'll discover the city's fascinating history, which goes well beyond its irrevocable links to the Titanic.

    It's a short transfer by coach from the pier to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, a treasure-trove of items relating to the sea, including ship models, portraits and thousands of marine photographs. Still, the highlight of the museum is the world's largest collection of wooden artifacts from the Titanic, which sank in the North Atlantic 700 nautical miles east of Halifax. The ship's tragic sinking is forever tied to Halifax, which sent three ships to recover victims, more than a hundred of whom are buried at Fairview Lawn Cemetery, your next stop. Here, you will gaze upon rows of granite headstones, each inscribed with the date of the sinking, April 15, 1912, a stark reminder of the disaster.

    Of course, there is much more to beautiful Halifax, as you will discover on your panoramic drive through town. Being that Halifax is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia (New Scotland), your guide will be wearing a kilt while elaborating on all the local attractions and the town's notable history. You will hear wild tales of rum running, privateering and the massive Halifax Explosion of 1917 that nearly leveled the entire city. During your drive, you will also pass Canada's oldest brewery, the gorgeous Public Gardens and Halifax Citadel, a National Historic Site. Following your tour of the city, you will return to the pier where your tour concludes.

    Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests' discretion at the stops. There are some natural surfaces and slight inclines at Fairview Lawn Cemetery to access all gravesites. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; an umbrella; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.

  • Tall Ship Sailing Experience

    Cruise Halifax Harbor in a magnificent tall ship, enjoying spectacular views and the rare experience of sailing a three masted steel schooner - the magnificent Tall Ship Silva of Halifax. Originally built in Kartlstad, Sweden in 1939, during the first two decades of her life she was traded with general cargo under sail and motor in Western Europe. In the 1960’s Silva was refitted as a bulk freighter and continued coastal trading in Sweden until 1994. In the summer of 2001, she was towed to North America and restoration was undertaken.

    It's a short walk from the pier to the Tall Ship and once aboard, you'll receive a safety briefing, put up the sails and then begin your sail around Halifax harbor. This beautiful harbor is the world's second largest natural harbor (the largest being in Sydney, Australia) and home to America's oldest yacht club, Northwest Arm.

    The harbor views are simply outstanding in every direction and include historic homes and Canada's east coast naval base. The harbor is also known as the site of the Halifax Explosion of 1917, the world's largest manmade explosion before the atomic bomb was dropped. The massive explosion was caused by two ships colliding; one carrying munitions, and the resulting blast nearly leveled the entire city.

    Returning to the dock, the sails will be lowered and you will disembark the ship. Then it's your choice to either walk back to the ship, or stay behind and do some exploring on your own.

    Please note: There is a limited amount of walking on this tour and your time aboard the sailing vessel is mostly seated. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair (non-motorized), are able to make their own way on and off the vessel, and have an able-bodied companion to assist them.
