    What to Expect
    This tour is inspired by the popularity of our fun, fast-paced hour-long Harbour Hopper Tour. During this one-hour cruise, we’ll share highlights of our Harbour's history, while you enjoy unobstructed views of beautiful Georges Island, the Historic Properties, and the picturesque Halifax skyline. This fully commentated tour provides some great history about Halifax, the founding, and some of our most notable moments in history such as the Halifax Explosion, our involvement with the recovery efforts of the Titanic tragedy, and our city's role in the World Wars. You’ll travel on board our iconic Mississippi sternwheeler which is conveniently equipped with restrooms, a full-service bar, and available snack options. The Harbour Queen I offers an upper level with a covered roof and open sides, perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze while also being protected from the elements. The lower level is wrapped in beautiful, bright windows and is heated. This Historic Harbour Cruise is a comfortable, informative and very relaxing way to experience Halifax from the water.
