Halifax has an interesting history, including being known as the final resting place for many Titanic victims. We'll visit this noteworthy cemetery before moving on to Fisherman's Cove to experience all this fishing village has to offer.

Your day begins with a pickup at the cruise pier in a comfortable, roomy vehicle with space for up to 6 guests. With your friendly local guide at the wheel, you will see the Halifax waterfront and hear some of the city's fascinating history, including its enduring connection to the Titanic. A visit to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 120 of those who lost their lives during the sinking of the Titanic, will help you visualize the scale of this tragedy.

The drive to Fisherman's Cove is a pleasant one and during this time you can discuss your interests with your guide to assist him in delivering a tour that best fulfills your wishes.

Enjoy the view as we cross one of the bridges connecting Halifax to the Dartmouth area. Let your guide know if you'd like to stop in Cole Harbor to see the home of Sidney Crosby, aka "Sid the Kid". This Canadian hockey player is captain of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins. We'll pass through Cow Bay, known for surfing, kayaking, and great beaches. If you're lucky, you might see local favorite, Murray the Moose!

At Fisherman's Cove, you'll find a 200-year-old working fishing village that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. It retains the feel of its past while offering amenities of today. Stroll the picturesque boardwalk, browse the galleries and gift shops or grab a treat. Let your guide know when you're ready for lunch and based on your culinary preferences he will steer you to one of the many delicious options available.

If time allows, ask your guide to take you up Citadel Hill for great views of Halifax.
