Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

6 reviews
Why not combine our two most popular tours into one? See the sights of the historic port city of Halifax and then take in the famous breathtaking sights of Peggy's Cove.<br><br>Our tour would commence from Pier 21 with its Historic block as the "Ellis Island" of Canada, where more than one million immigrants came through and more than 500,000 left from during WWII.<br><br>From there we will visit St. Paul's Church, the oldest Anglican church in Canada. As well, St. Paul's Church was among some of the buildings that withstood the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917. We will drive on to Fort Needham Hill where a memorial carillon was built for the victims of that explosion. Then we'll be on to Canada's most famous lighthouse.<br><br>Peggy's Cove is one of the most unique, captivating and exhilarating eye-openers in Nova Scotia. The quaint seaside hamlets of Shad Bay, Big Lake, East Dover and West Dover, to mention but a few, are also breathtaking.

Wow such a neat and informative place! I cant believe how much I learned just from a 10 minute chat! I didn't even know Canada had leatherback sea turtles before stepping inside, let alone how important they are as a predator, seeing as all they eat is jellyfish!

We were walking on the Halifax Boardwalk near the Maritime Museum when we discovered the information kiosk of the Canadian Sea Turtle Network. The Assistant Director of Communications Yolana Wassersug, gave us an intro into how the network, working with scientists, commercial fishermen and coastal communities tracks the migration route of the Leatherback sea turtles. Leatherbacks are the world’s largest sea turtle and can grow up to 2 meters in length and weigh 900 kilos. About 50% of the Atlantic Leatherbacks that appear in Canadian waters nest on beaches in Trinidad. After laying their eggs the females travel north to waters off Nova Scotia where they rejoin males and mate. Since Leatherbacks have been swimming the oceans for over 90 million years it is easy to assume that they are impregnable, however that is far from true, their populations are dwindling and they are now endangered. This little center has a lot of valuable information and is a real education for both kids and adults.
