Description

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

Your comfortable transportation will take you from your ship and transport you back in time. Learn more about the people and events that were part of that fateful day. April 14, 1912 that forever changed maritime history.

Halifax was the closest major port to the tragic sinking of the "Titanic" and all of the recovered bodies were brought to Halifax, along with many pieces of wreckage. Your travels will take you by the church where memorial services for the Titanic's dead were held as well as the location where temporary morgues were set up to gather the victims, before you stop at Fairview Lawn Cemetery.

The cemetery is the final resting place of 121 of the ship's victims, more than any place else in the world. Your knowledgeable, kilted tour guide will share some of the fascinating personal stories of the victims. Most of them are memorialized with a small gray granite marker giving their name and date of death. Some families paid for larger markers with more inscriptions. The occupants of a third of the graves, however, have never been identified and their markers contain just their date of death and marker number.
Your next stop is the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

Among its many historic exhibits you'll find the world's foremost collection of Titanic memorabilia, including the ship's only surviving deck chair and an intricately carved door topper copied for the movie "Titanic." Your informative and moving tour concludes as your you return to the safety of your ship.
