Everything about our experience was positive. For example, it left the dock on time. The trip covered a large area of the outer harbor. The narrator was articulate and knowledgeable. He walked around answering individual questions when not on the PA system.

It was one of the highlights of our vacation. It was a short trip though about 90 minutes. The staff were super explaining the history of the harbor. We would have loved to have taken a longer too as the weather was amazing that day and the wind from the sails made an extra special escape from reality for a little period of time.

The crew was wonderful!! They did a great job of making everyone feel comfortable and highly entertained as well as very informative. Won't give anything away as you'll have to take the cruise and find out for yourself. The scenery is wonderful. Great opportunity for some amazing pics. Loved it!!

My husband, son, and I took the 1.5 hour cruise at the beginning of August, and it was not only interesting but educational. The crew was courteous, the ship was beautiful, my husband helped hoist the sails. A crew member provided stories about Halifax and its naval history, and answered questions. The pub inside offered drinks and they pulled out blankets for anyone who didn't dress warm enough. East coast music played when there wasn't anyone discussing history. Overall, a great experience and something I would recommend.
