Tall Ship Silva Sailing Cruise

About this Tour

Your visit to Halifax will simply not be complete without experiencing a scenic sailing cruise on the world's second-largest natural harbour – the Halifax Harbour. Join us aboard Halifax’s signature ship, the Tall Ship Silva, to see the sights, city, and coastline, from a unique perspective. While on board our historic, three-masted schooner, you’ll see some of Halifax’s most well-known landmarks including Georges Island National Historic Site, the Historic Properties, the vibrant waterfront, and more. If conditions are favourable, you’ll be invited to join the crew in raising the sails – this is especially fun for the little ones. So come, relax, refresh with a beverage or two from the onboard bar, and enjoy your leisurely sailing cruise on the water.
