Description

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

Departing your ship, you'll board your transportation for a scenic ride through Halifax as you travel to the idyllic fishing community of Peggy's Cove. Once you arrive, you'll be swept away by the picturesque scenery of this village that dates back to 1811. The village may have been named after the wife of an early settler or taken its name from St. Margaret's Bay since it marks the eastern beginning of the Bay and Peggy is a nickname for Margaret.

Enjoy your time shopping and exploring the quaint village. The lonely lighthouse stands atop a granite outcrop lashed by the sea. It is a scene that has inspired artists and photographers for decades. The current traditional white and red was built in 1914, and protects sailors from the jagged and smooth rocks that surround the cove.

You'll also have the option to enjoy a live lobster demonstration, a natural attraction in this active fishing village. After your time in Peggy's Cove, you'll return to your transportation for the scenic ride back to Halifax. Along the way, you'll pass by some of the more notable sights such as Province House, the Halifax Clock Tower and the Historic Properties complex before returning back to your ship.
