Departure & Return
What To Expect
The tour begins on land in Halifax’s historic district downtown. Your driver will point out the city's oldest building, St Paul’s Church, which dates to 1749, as well as Citadel Hill, where landmark Fort George sits as a tribute to Halifax’s key naval role during the British Empire. Flower-filled Halifax Public Gardens is a lovely example of a Victorian-era garden, with its linden and elm trees, wrought-iron gates, bandstand, fountains and statues.
Then it's time for an exciting plunge into the waters of Halifax Harbour to learn about the city’s naval fleet. While learning about Halifax's naval history, you'll enjoy waterfront views of navy ships and submarines. The tour ends where it began, and you'll be ready to hit the town with dining, shopping and entertainment suggestions from your entertaining driver/guide. Have fun further exploring Halifax on your own!
