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.

Short but Fun

This was a very fun excursion. It is a short excursion but we got to see the sites on land, then the same vehicle went into the water and we got to see that sites from the sea.

Weather was Biggest Problem

The staff was great and the tour guide very informative. Unfortunately, the day we were in Halifax was very windy and we were unable to go out onto the water. We did do the land portion and the tour operator gave us a partial credit for the reduced tour. We've taken duck boat tours before and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Had the weather cooperated, this would have been a great tour.

Great to sit back and relax

Really enjoyed the Land and Sea excursion. It was very cool to ride through the streets of Halifax, then move to the water and back. I would have liked more time in the water, but what I had was great.
