Halifax Shore Excursion: Peggy's Cove with the best of Halifax
  • Halifax Shore Excursion: Peggy's Cove with the best of Halifax

    This amazing shore excursion offers stunning scenery, good gift shops and the famous Peggy Cove lighthouse. You will see all Halifax has to offer  and one of our favourite attractions in Nova Scotia. This is a great half day tour making your day ashore at Halifax one to remember.

    Come and see one of Canada's most visited places!

    Your half day ashore starts with a popular excursion through Halifax, it is the biggest city east of Montreal and the capital of Nova Scotia. Halifax was founded in 1749 to protect British interests in North America.  The area is steeped in maritime history and some of the great highlights you will see include the Grand Parade Square and the central square of the original town. Canada's oldest Anglican Church St. Paul's church, is located in the square.

    From here we visit West Dover, a small fishing community with a population of just 275 people offering a fascinating and remarkable setting. Then we head along the beautiful coastal road to Peggy's Cove. As soon as you arrive you will be enchanted by the lighthouse located on the edge of the ocean and the quaint fishing village, Peggy's Cove attracts thousands of visitors each year. Nestled on the rocky shoreline of St. Margaret's Bay, the area offers stunning, world-renowned scenery.

    During your tour here we get to view the Devonian Granite Rock Formations , these influenced they way the landscape around Peggy's Cove was created. Boulders that seem to grow out of the fields of moss and shrubs are a gigantic 350- to 415-million-year-old.  They were scattered by retreating glaciers about 10,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age. 

    Whilst we head back to Halifax, we enjoy a photo stop at the Halifax Citadel. This hilltop area allows guests a stunning panoramic view of the city and harbour, creating a great finish to your half day shore excursion.

      We had a great tour guide and very much liked all of the stops and the whole experience. Hallifax is a beautiful town and we learned so much from Johnathan. Peggy's cove was beautiful and we had a great time visiting Hallifax.

      this was an enjoyable trip.
      the town tour is a typically town tour.
      the weather at the cove was a bit cold and windy the day we toured.
      the lighthouse and views are spectacular. the view when arriving to the lighthouse is breathtaking. wish the tour bus could have stopped for a picture. the one in my memory will have to do! 3 of us enjoyed a Peggy's Cover hot dog from a local vendor. Yes a hot dog.

      We took this tour on a rainy day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information along the way. When we got to Peggy's Cove, we headed to the food truck for lobster rolls. They were delicious. Peggy's Cove is a quaint little town. I would have loved to be able to explore more, but the rain kept us inside. We left the tour knowing a lot more about Halifax than when we started!

      we had a nice bus trip but Peggy's Cove didn't have much to see. It lasted 1;30 minutes.
      way too long as there is nothing to do there. 30 minutes tops. it needs to be combined with other sites
