Overview
On this 1-hour Harbour Hopper tour, you'll travel on both land and water aboard a nifty, renovated amphibious Vietnam War vehicle. The unconventional method of transportation gives you an overview of some of Halifax's key landmarks: First, drive by St Paul’s Cathedral, Citadel Hill and Halifax Public Gardens, then splash into Halifax Harbour for panoramic views of the waterfront.
What to Expect
Board the Harbour Hopper, a renovated amphibious vehicle from the Vietnam War era, at the Halifax Ferry Terminal. Take a seat on the covered open deck for great views of the city's top attractions -- by water and by land! -- on this 1-hour tour. Your knowledgeable driver/guide will keep you entertained with engaging commentary and tales of naval history, and offer suggestions for where to head next during your stay in this bustling seaside city.

The tour begins on land in Halifax’s historic district downtown. Your driver will point out the city's oldest building, St Paul’s Church, which dates to 1749, as well as Citadel Hill, where landmark Fort George sits as a tribute to Halifax’s key naval role during the British Empire. Flower-filled Halifax Public Gardens is a lovely example of a Victorian-era garden, with its linden and elm trees, wrought-iron gates, bandstand, fountains and statues.

Then it's time for an exciting plunge into the waters of Halifax Harbour to learn about the city’s naval fleet. While learning about Halifax's naval history, you'll enjoy waterfront views of navy ships and submarines. The tour ends where it began, and you'll be ready to hit the town with dining, shopping and entertainment suggestions from your entertaining driver/guide. Have fun further exploring Halifax on your own!

Fun on the Hopper

The tour guide and driver were delightful. Lucked out and had perfect weather in Halifax. Beautiful city - short tour with just enough information to not bore you with history details. Would suggest to others with a short time in Halifax.

This tour is fun and informative about Halifax history. Captain Rachael drove us smoothly around, and our tour guide Abigail was hilarious. It's worth doing while you are visiting the city.
