      About this Halifax, Nova Scotia tour

      Shipwrecks, thieving pirates, maritime tragedy, and one of the world's biggest explosions ever – Halifax Harbour has seen it all. Cruise its waters with an entertaining crew and you'll step back onto land with a real taste of what Nova Scotia's seafaring life is all about.

      You'll hear how pirates, privateers, and smugglers plied this harbor for centuries. As you pass the city's Historic Properties, also called Privateers' Wharf, picture the days when they were warehouses that stashed loot lifted from American merchant ships during the War of 1812. The pillaging privateers later auctioned off their booty for big profits.

      While dozens of shipwrecks lie silent in the harbor's floor, two seafaring catastrophes will echo in these waters forever. In 1912, ships returned to the harbor with bodies from the RMS Titanic for burial in Halifax. And in 1917, the Great Halifax Explosion was heard for miles when the SS Mont-Blanc, a loaded French munitions ship, collided with the SS Imo. (See more of the damaging details about this blast from the past below.)

      Harbour Queen's crew not only spin great yarns. They cook up a savory feast of Seafood Chowder, Steamed Mussels, Atlantic Salmon (plus salad, sides, and options for landlubbers too). Save room for Apple Crisp, Chocolate Torte or – a Nova Scotia favorite – fresh Blueberry Pie. And if all the yarns and feasting bring out your inner pirate, no worries. There's a watering hole onboard with a barkeep who knows the ropes. Just hand over a little booty and he'll be pouring you some grog.

      The disastrous day in Halifax

      During World War I, the city was a hub of activity, but the morning of December 6, 1917 changed everything. Two ships collided, and a cataclysmic blast shattered every city window, leveled buildings, and sparked raging fires. When it was over, 2,000 were dead and 9,000 injured. The detonated onboard munitions equaled about 2.9 kilotons of TNT – creating the world's biggest man-made explosion until Hiroshima in 1945.
