      About this Halifax, Nova Scotia tour

      There's only one way to see Atlantic Canada's quintessential waterfront city. Only one way to grasp how seafaring heritage is woven like sailors' knots into this modern port. Of course, you have to see Halifax from the water. And on a relaxed Sunday morning, with a friendly crew, delicious food, and champagne – well, that's "some good" as Bluenosers say (that's the affectionate nickname for Nova Scotians).

      Don't be startled by the big boom at noon (and don't spill your champagne). You're hearing the cannon, fired daily at the Citadel – the massive fort that dominates the skyline. The city started here in 1749, when the British built a wooden guardhouse to defend the harbor. As the Citadel grew (you'll see the fourth version), so did the city. Looking up at its ramparts, you'll know why no enemy dared attack Nova Scotia's capital.

      You'll cruise past the colorful Historic Properties along the waterfront. Dating back to the late 1700s, they were once warehouses stuffed with booty captured by privateers (basically legalized pirates). Boutiques have replaced the booty, but a whiff of pirate still lingers along the wharf. You'll glide by Georges Island, a scene of military activity for 200 years. Ask your guide about its prisoners and hidden tunnels. This place has a mysterious past.

      Of course, the crew finds the perfect spot to snap pictures of the lighthouse. You've got to take those in Nova Scotia. And you've got to have a "good feed" as the saying goes. The Harbour Queen crew won't disappoint you here either. Those Bluenosers know how to put on some good Sunday Brunch.

      The dark and light of McNab Island

      This island was once strategic in defending Halifax Harbour. During the Napoleonic Wars, the Royal Navy displayed a grisly sight on its beach: executed mutineers serving as a warning to anyone entering the harbor with similar intentions. On a brighter note, in 1851 the McNab Lighthouse was the first to use kerosene. After the keeper proved its efficiency, whale oil was phased out for keeping Nova Scotia's lighthouses burning.
