Overview



Explore the former ship-building town of Mahone Bay and the historic fishing town of Lunenburg.

Two delightful, historic and beautiful towns await your discovery as you venture west from Halifax along Nova Scotia's south shore.

Upon departure from Halifax, your guide will tell you a bit about the history of this very interesting city. From interesting city to fascinating town, we make our way to Mahone Bay. From across the harbor, view the 3 prominent churches of the town, which have become an iconic image of Nova Scotia. Known for its history of wooden boat building in earlier times, you might want to visit the Mahone Bay Museum, chock full of exhibits and artifacts to help you understand this town's past. Or spend your time admiring the colorful homes, charming streets and interesting shops and galleries.

Moving on to the former fishing town of Lunenburg, you will be taken in by the narrow streets and unique architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. During our 2-hour visit, you might choose to take the optional walking tour of the upper part of town. Or feel free to stroll the historic streets on your own before heading down to the colorful waterfront. Here you'll find Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador, the Bluenose II. This graceful ship is a replica of of the original fishing boat that found fame as a racing schooner. Visit the Fisheries Museum or enjoy a delightful lunch at one of the many restaurants offering the freshest of seafood.
