Description

Cast off into Halifax Harbour on this dinner cruise aboard a Mississippi-style sternwheeler. Glimpse top attractions along the Northwest Arm of the harbor, including the lovely wooded landscapes of Point Pleasant Park and the Dingle, while you dine on a gourmet buffet prepared with fresh produce and the catch of the day. Admire Halifax’s waterfront while listening to light but engaging commentary on the points of interest. This 2-hour dinner cruise is an excellent prelude to a night on the town.

When the sun goes down, Halifax’s waterfront and Northwest Arm provide the perfect setting for your dinner cruise. At the ferry terminal, step aboard the Harbour Queen I, an elegant Mississippi-style sternwheeler, for your 2-hour journey along Halifax Harbour.

Take to your private table and indulge in a gourmet dinner buffet prepared with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, like Atlantic mussels and salmon. (See below for a sample menu.)

Enjoy light commentary from your crew on the main attractions along the way. At the southern tip of the Halifax peninsula, hear about Point Pleasant Park, a historical 190-acre (77-hectare) wooded area, and find out how much Halifax pays the British government to lease this land.

Admire stately homes situating along the waterfront, not easily visible from land. If you look below, you might spot a porpoise or seal riding the waters with you.

The Harbour Queen I turns around near the Dingle, formally known as Sir Sandford Fleming Park. Catch sight of Dingle Tower on top of a grassy knoll and learn about the park’s history.

When you’ve had your fill of dinner, purchase a cocktail from the fully equipped bar and head out with your family or friends to the open-air upper deck. Feel the sea breeze, listen to the music playing in the background and watch ships sail by.
