Our tour begins with a glimpse into the history of Halifax and connection to the Titanic as we take you to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery where many of the victims from the sinking of the Titanic are buried. We will talk about the Halifax Explosion of 1917 and how it changed the cities of both Halifax and Dartmouth. Your private tour continues as we travel across one of the two bridges to the Dartmouth area and on to Fisherman's Cove, located in Eastern Passage.
Fisherman's Cove is both frozen in time and constantly evolving. Nestled in a centuries old fishing community that is still active, it is also home to a unique collection of colourful gift shops, museums and art galleries, delicious restaurants, coffee and bake shops, ice-cream canteens and fish n' chip shacks.
We will tour some local sites including a boardwalk which crosses a pond and leads you to the incredible ocean . . keep an eye out for the local Moose that is known to be in the area of the Silver Sands Beach.
Other options for this tour, time permitting are:
- Shearwater Aviation Museum
