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.

Informative and fun
October 28, 2022
We had a great time on this informative and fun adventure. I had no idea what I was getting into but so happy my friends chose this for our excursion. Both the captain and tour guide were exceptional and very knowledgeable of the area. Our guide secured my husband’s wheelchair at the kiosk and brought it back after our excursion. What a great time!! I would highly recommend this excursion and trip to everyone and anyone. I would take this excursion again without thinking twice. I also felt very safe, our captain was serious about safety but made it fun.

Amazing tour!

Despite cold and rainy day, (in June) our tour guide and driver were very upbeat and informative. Our guide delivered town history and fun facts in a very humorous manner which helped us forget the weather and completely enjoy the tour!

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
October 26, 2019
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.
