Let us be your guide and travel with us along the eastern shoreline of Halifax Harbour! 

 

From your local accommodator or cruise dock, we'll tour through historic Halifax and cross over the harbour on the MacDonald Bridge (Halifax's oldest suspension bridge) to Dartmouth.

We'll travel along the eastern shoreline of Halifax Harbour and head to Eastern Passage and Fisherman's Cove, Halifax's last remaining fishing port. We'll visit the Henneberry Museum and learn about the history of the area including the story of the C.S.S. Tallahassee commercial raider and its relationship/involvement with Halifax.

Leaving Eastern Passage, we'll travel on the "Marine Drive", a roadway which will take us along the eastern shoreline past stunning headlands, one of the world's premier winter surfing beaches, salt marshes, and Acadian architecture

We'll drive to the village of Musquodoboit Harbour to visit to the Fisherman's Life Museum. This will be an introduction to the realities of earning a living on this harsh and unforgiving landscape of the "Eastern Shore" of Nova Scotia.
