Departing Halifax you will enjoy a variety of historic sites and tales along route to Mahone Bay, famous for its picturesque scene of three waterfront churches, and many cottage industries and craft shops. You will have some time in this quaint village for pictures and a wander on the waterfront. You’ll love this tour along our beautiful South Shore!

Commonly known as “the prettiest town in Canada”, Lunenburg has recently been named one of the world’s few UNESCO World Heritage Sites by the United Nations. Settled in the mid 1750’s by Germans and Swiss, its citizens still retain one of the most interesting accents in North America. Now a bustling fishing port, Lunenburg was once considered to be the busiest shipbuilding town in the world, and was the birthplace of the world-famous racing schooner Bluenose. The town’s distinctive architecture and extraordinary scenic beauty is a colourful reminder of our maritime heritage, which can be explored at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.

Upon arrival you will enjoy a traditional Maritime Luncheon at the Old Fish Factory overlooking the Lunenburg waterfront. After lunch, enjoy some free time to wander the quaint streets and browse the many handcraft stores for souvenirs. Or visit the various vessels along the waterfront, including the Bluenose II if in dock and the Fisheries Museum. Then we will venture back to Halifax mid afternoon.
