1. Halifax Harbour – Northwest Arm Exploratour
Only a stone’s throw from DT Halifax hotels, restaurants & entertainment, discover another side of Halifax only accessible by water. This is by far our favorite place to paddle. On this adventure, we occasionally encounter marine life & shorebirds.
Together, we’ll explore this sheltered arm of the Halifax Harbour dotted by sailboats, yacht clubs, oceanfront cottages & mansions, rugged shorelines & boreal forests, a Napoleonic War era prison and Dead Man’s Island. Learn about one of our guide’s personal family connection to the Halifax Explosion, the world’s most powerful human-made explosion before Hiroshima.
2. Golden Hour Sunset Paddle
Enjoy a relaxing paddle of the Northwest Arm at Sunset. We either paddle along Point Pleasant Park to Seal Cove or to the watch the sunset behind the tower of Sir Sanford Fleming Park.
