Halifax Shore Excursion Guide

Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting Halifax. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit Halifax. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in Halifax to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

Peggy's Cove and...

Established in 1811, the village of Peggy's Cove has both charm, regional historical significance, and a gorgeous lighthouse. Basic tours to Peggy's Cove and Halifax are around $40, with the pricier tours featuring double decker bus rides. The most expensive features lobster for lunch. Most of these excursions are from 3.5 to 5.5 hours long.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $40 to $132.
 
Booking Advice: These tours are generally rated as easy in terms of physical exertion, and some (but not all) are for the most part wheelchair accessible. Cruise line excursion prices are competitive with third party vendors on line.

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

These 2.5 hour tours first take you to Fairview Cemetary, where 121 of the Titanic's victims were interred, before taking you to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. This museum, in addition to many fascinating artifacts, has one of the most well regarded Titanic exhibits as well.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay about $49.
 
Booking Advice: Walking is involved, hence the moderate activity level rating. If you're not interested in the cemetery, you can walk to this museum. Located by the waterfront, it costs only $8.75 per adult from 5/1 through 10/31, and $4.75 otherwise. Taking a taxi or passenger ferry into town on your own for lunch could add to the fun.

Hop On & Off Tours

These tours are estimated at being at least an 1.5, and are a very popular way to explore the highlights of Halifax. The Maritime Museum, the Citadel Fortress, Alexander Keith's Brewery, the Spring Garden Road shopping, and the Halifax Public Gardens are among the featured places you can visit.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay $39.
 
Booking Advice: While these tours are rated as easy in terms of physical exertion, more walking might be involved depending upon your “hopping on and off” for tours. Another pricier ($99)_option are the cruise lines' “Top 10” Attractions in Halifax, which also feature Peggy's Cove and lunch. Third party vendors have some very competitive prices for Halifax and Peggy's Cove tours.

Lunenberg Tours

Regarded as one of the most picturesque coastal villages, Lunenberg is also where the Bluenose racing schooners were first created and built. En route to and from this lovely town, you'll see splendid scenery, including mansions and quaint little villages. Shop, explore the folk art, and experience for yourself the distinctive architecture in Lunenberg as you learn about its contribution to maritime history.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $45 to $50.
 
Booking Advice: These tours are rated as moderate in terms of physical activity, and last from 3.5 to 4 hours.

Pub Tours

A maritime tradition involves frequenting a few pubs upon the safe return from a seafaring journey, so that's what your group does! These tours typically go to a few uniquely “Olde English” pubs, and complete with a jig or two at a waterside establishment. Your tour guide, roving musicians, and “sou'wester” hats are involved.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $56 to $80.
 
Booking Advice: These tours are generally considered to be easy in terms of activity level, and last from 2.5 to 3 hours. With a little planning and round trip cab fare, you can likely visit the same places on your own (but you'll miss the musicians, the tour guide, & the hats).

Third Party Shore Excursions in Halifax

Below are links to third-party shore excursion vendors in Nova Scotia (Halifax). These links will launch in a new browser window and are external sites. We bear no responsibility for the content or services offered at these sites.
3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
