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.

The tall statue depicted a sailor carrying an aircap and a sack had been erected near Atlantic Maritime Museum along waterfront walkway of Halifax had historical stories behind. Worth to take a note on the plague with detailed description behind.

When you are walking the boards do a little detour behind the children's playground and see this well done tribute. Make sure you read the inscriptions.

If you're walking on the Harbourfront boardwalk, it's very easy to stop, see the statue, and think about the people and events connected to Halifax.

More than 65 years ago my father, a WWII vet, was stationed in Halifax. He not returned since but remembered this statue and asked me to see if it is still standing ...... a proud Canadian sailor!

Halifax’s Sailor Statue (aka The Sailor) is located at Sackville Landing near the intersection of Water and Sackville Streets. This eight foot-tall Peter Bustin-desgned statue, which depicts a jaunty-looking sailor toting a duffel bag and hammock, honors all Canadian sailors, regardless of whether they served in war or peace. The statue is very accessible, being close to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and easily reached from the nearby Harbourwalk promenade. Photography conditions are far from ideal, but with some effort you can find a decent camera angle.
