What happen to Murphy's - why do I only see Ambassatours Gray Line listed on the website, online, etc.?

Murphy's the Cable Wharf became part of Ambassatours Gray Line in 2013, Ambassatours Gray Line primarily operating motor coach and sightseeing tours while Murphy's operated tours on the water and amphibious tours. Though the bus division was sold in 2019, Ambassatours Gray Line continued to offer sightseeing tours to Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg and the Annapolis Valley as well as in other parts of Atlantic Canada. All of this while continuing its water and amphibious tours.
