Experience the beauty of Peggy's Cove as you wander through the scenic, rocky paradise and learn the history behind its famous white lighthouse.
Have been here several times; not to be missed for those new to Halifax.
Sail Date: September 2017
Have been here several times; not to be missed for those new to Halifax. Great for picture taking. Very crowded; fortunate we were the first bus on site.

Great tour and guide. Three hour tour was 2 hours of travel time and only one hour at Peggy's Cove. NOT ENOUGH TIME to look around especially with 6 other buses there! Need more time! Beautiful place to see!

On short notice, I asked for suggestions and Peggy's Cove was recommended most often by far. Our excursion also visited the Titanic graveyard. We enjoyed this excursion to a quaint fishing village, but the highlight for us was the view of the rocks and ocean near the lighthouse. We also enjoyed the graveyard. For us, this was a "glad we did it once, but won't again". Halifax is a pretty port & we were happy to find (and enjoy) lobster rolls (the half & half) from Dave's (we loved the "fancy" half) and poutine. We snapped pics of the "drunk lights" at the harbor and wandered around for a couple of hours, then enjoyed a flight from Garrison Brewery across from the port. Read Less

Fabulous, a photographer's dream. Tip - skip the lunch and do lunch on your own as soon as you arrive. It's better value, and your time is your own. The crowds waiting in line are huge afterwards. We loved this excursion so much.

This was by far our favorite stop. If you can get out to Peggy's Cove I would recommend it. If you need accessible transportation for an electric wheelchair it is super expensive with the cruise line. I found my own thru a company that is a charity called Callow Bus. They are amazing and charge per hour and the bus can fit up to 8 people I believe. We saw a ton of things. We went to Peggy's Cove and saw the lighthouse and the fisherman's monument. Then we stopped and got maple syrup on the drive back to Halifax. In Halifax we drove around the Citadel, went to the Titanic Graves, drove past the public gardens (we could have gotten out), went by the library, and saw a few other sites. Then we had our driver leave us at the end of the boardwalk so we could explore around there and walk back to the ship. Read Less

On the first day, we had pre-booked tickets last October to the Nova Scotia Tattoo which is a three hour superbly choreographed show with military bands, bagpipers, dancers, choirs, and much, much more. We walked from the ship to the Scotia Bank Center in about 30 minutes. Tip: Follow Google Maps walking directions as what appears to be the most logical way ends with a very steep climb. The ship offered a similar tour, but we had much better seats for less than half the price and the bus transport took about the same time as traffic around the event was very heavy. That evening we walked back to the Citadel for the fireworks show. The show itself only lasted about 10 minutes - a disappointment for Canada's 150th Birthday. The second morning we took the Peggy's Cove and Titanic Tour (HX67). We departed in a torrential rain, but it shifted to fog as we left the city. Our guide was excellent providing lots of information and took time to visit/respond to questions with each person on our way back from Peggy's Cove. The fog was quite heavy and you could barely see the ocean from the lighthouse. This was an excellent tour that would have been outstanding if the weather had been better. Read Less
