Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Immerse yourself in Nova Scotia's rich maritime heritage on a full-day adventure that begins with a scenic 60-minute drive to Peggy's Cove, famous for its quintessential East Coast fishing village style dating back to 1811. At this designated preservation area, delight in independent exploration of its shops, and its iconic red and white lighthouse, the most photographed lighthouse in Canada. Stop at a local restaurant for a tasty lobster roll lunch. Then, a short ride brings you to the center of town to tour the 19th-century Halifax Citadel National Historical Site and Army Museum, located within the fortress grounds. Next, visit the Halifax Public Gardens and stroll through the oldest original Victorian gardens in the country. Conclude the day at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the heart of Halifax's historic waterfront, where you'll peruse exhibits and displays dedicated to Nova Scotia's relationship with the sea and featuring Titanic memorabilia and artifacts. Return to port.

Special Notes:

The drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove is approximately an hour long. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a raincoat and umbrella in case of Atlantic mists. Don't forget your camera and plenty of film or memory. The timing of the sites visited may be altered to accommodate the amount of ships in port. Please note that on some voyages the duration of the tour will be based on the ship's time at port.
