Halifax by Land & Sea
Hop onboard an amphibious supply boat form the Vietnam War, refurbished into a colorful tour boat that will take you from the streets of Halifax, over the waterfront, and into the harbor.
You'll depart near the Halifax waterfront and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which houses many nautical and naval artifacts, including permanent exhibitions on the Titanic and the Halifax Explosion.
The tour winds through the streets of the Halifax peninsula, with a guide narrating the tour. You'll hear all about the city's history, from pirates and fortresses to its role in some of Canada's biggest moments.
See the bustle of the city's shopping district on Spring Garden Road and take in a bit of history as you cruise by the Citadel National Historic Site, the Victorian Public Gardens, and St. Paul's Church.
Once you're on the water you'll get a brand new view of the naval dockyards with huge military ships in dock, Halifax's Historic Properties, the waterfront Boardwalk, and the tall ships and yachts that reside in the harbor. The city's ferries will crisscross around you on their trips from Halifax to Dartmouth as you get a closer glimpse of the George's Island lighthouse. See beautiful Halifax from a different perspective on this tour of the land and sea.

This was a great way to see Halifax in the limited time we had off of the ship. It was great to see many of the sights by land which we could not have walked to and by boat as well. Less expensive than booking through the ship. I recommend it!

This tour was in a land/sea vehicle and was a lot of fun. The guide was great, both informative and funny. It was located about 20 minutes walk from the ship, and we would highly recommend it.

Wonderful to have been able to see Halifax both by land and water with our exceptional tour guide. Very well versed with great sense of humour. A natural guide, some of them aren't. There have been many changes since last there, many years ago. Halifax is a beautiful city and it's nice to see that it's thriving. Would take this land & sea tour again in a heartbeat.

Very enjoyable ride. The tour guide was excellent. Loved touring the land and then going into the sea. After the trip, there was plenty of time to explore the shops and restaurants. You could make this an all day event if wanted to. Would highly recommend this trip.
