Very nice experience with friends and not very expensive. You can have refreshments, beers and the cruise is about 2 and a half hours long with a historic commentary about the harbor and Halifax.

A very good experience. A very calm day helped, if it had been a bit rough, well? Saw contrasting ship in harbour, Queen Mary2 and Greenpeace. This trip is well recommended.

Disappointing. We had sailed on a sailing ship in Lunenburg Nova Scotia the previous week but decided to take our 2 children with us in Halifax the following week. We left the harbour and they then hoisted the sails but they are just for decorative...More
