Nova Scotia's Peggy's Cove

Sit back and make your way to one of Nova Scotia's most iconic sites in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus, which will bring you right to the heart of Peggy's Cove. Tall and creamy white with a bright red cap, the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove is the most famous lighthouse in Canada, and Peggy's Cove itself is one of the busiest tourist attractions in Nova Scotia.

The hour long drive to Peggy's Point is a beautiful one. On this Halifax tour, you'll go past small coastal towns, with beautiful views to the ocean. The landscape as you approach Peggy's Cove is almost prehistoric in its rugged beauty. Granite rises and falls like huge, gentle waves turned to stone, tumbling into the Atlantic in a beautiful crash of nature.

You'll have about an hour and a half to explore Peggy's Cove. A short walk down the road from the lighthouse and gift shop, sits the quaint, picture-perfect fishing village with trawlers and dories casting out from a small dock, and several shops with handcrafted souvenirs and pewter trinkets.

Visit the William E. deGarthe Gallery and Museum on Peggy's Point Road. There you'll find a collection of deGarthe's work, stunning paintings inspired by the maritime scenery and coastal communities where he lived. You can't miss deGarthe's Fishermen's Monument, a stunning carving in the granite of the cove on the roadside leading to the lighthouse. After admiring the monument, you will make your way back to Halifax.

A delightful Bus Ride

The weather was very inclement. The driver did a very commendable job of providing us with an alternative route in order to improve the visual quality as seen from inside the bus. And then at the end of the tour he graciously dropped us off at the cruise entrance.

We were very happy with our excursion to Peggy's Cove. Our bus driver was great, he told us all about Peggy's Cove and Nova Scotia . My only complaint was that we had to walk a good mile or more to get to that bus. I had foot surgery 2 weeks before that trip so I had a hard time walking back and forth. The people we met on the ship got their bus right out the door. In the end we had a great time.

The location is spectacular. We were very glad we took this trip. Our driver did double duty as tour guide and provided well- organized and entertaining commentary on the area.
