Boats in Halifax Harbour

Halifax Harbour Sailing Trip

The tall ship Mar II offers the kind of sailing tours Halifax has come to be known for, and boat tours are one of the best ways to explore Halifax.

Take in the sights of Halifax’s waterfront and enjoy the view of this charming and historic city with miles of shoreline guarded by Georges Island and its graceful lighthouse.

You can keep a lookout for whales, harbour seals and seabirds and for those that are inclined the crew are happy for you to participate in the sailing of the ship, whether hoisting the sails or winching the sheets.
