A ride with Harbour Hopper Tours should be first on your family’s itinerary for Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia. The tours, which last about an hour, give visitors an overview of the history and culture of Halifax, with half of the tour on land and the other half in water. Perhaps the best advantage is an up-close view of the Citadel (sit on the right-hand side of the bus when facing from the back of the bus) for the best views.
Tours are available May to October, typically 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. One tour departs once per hour.
