Wines on the Water

About this Tour

Sip and savour the award-winning wines of Nova Scotia in the most East Coast way. Join us on Wines on the Water - a wine lovers sailing cruise on the Halifax Harbour and Northwest Arm. Each week, a local winery “takes over” Wines on the Water and leads you through a variety of Nova Scotia wines including Nova Scotia’s signature wine – Tidal Bay. See Halifax’s coastal beauty and vibrant waterfront from the deck of Halifax’s signature ship, the Tall Ship Silva. Make this a true Nova Scotia experience and be prepared to dance and sing along to songs and tunes delivered by our resident musician.
