Halifax Whale & Nature Watch

This nature tour will provide you with some prime opportunities to see some wildlife.

This is a relaxing, peaceful tour to the beautiful rocky coastline of Duncan's Cove at Chebucto Head, the very edge of the Halifax peninsula, where Halifax Harbor meets the ocean. During this Halifax tour, the captain and crew will point out historical landmarks and tell you some tales about the history of the area.

This Halifax nature tour will give you a unique vantage point to enjoy the coastline of Nova Scotia. The tall, white lighthouse at Chebucto Head is an iconic sight, and along with seagulls, lobster traps, and bobbing sailboats, will give you ample opportunities to soak in the Maritime lifestyle.

This tour also gives you the opportunity, if luck is on your side, to spot some of the native sea life; Nova Scotia is home to minke and fin whales, dolphins, seals, tuna, sunfish, and various seabirds. The crew will pull up a lobster trap and show you how to handle these crusty critters, showing you how to hold and handle them, and giving you a little lesson on the life of a lobster. Remember that wildlife is just that: wild, so sightings can't be guaranteed. Sail to where Halifax Harbor meets the Atlantic Ocean and watch for whales on this adventurous nature tour in Nova Scotia.

In advance of the trip we got the information that there will be no sea life. So we didn’t expect much. But because of the beautiful weather and the information from the host, it was a very relaxed watch.

purchasing directly from the vendor you will pay half of the price you pay here.... I understand they need to make some markup, but twice is too much.
