Give yourself lots of time to find parking, so that you can get to the ship on time.

It's about 10 degrees(C) colder on the water so may want to bring a sweater/jacket depending on time of year.

We had a great time. The crew let my children help raise the sails and steer the ship. They were very pleasant and entertaining. It was a good day had by all.

It was a good tour of the harbour but absolutely no commentary. I am a local person from dartmouth and a US visitor was sitting beside me and appreciated n me telling him basic sites suck as Georges island, the refinineries, dead mans island etc. I would never recommend this service to a tourist or visitotrs for they expect some narration. in my opinion this is laziness by the crew, one or two of the crew seemed to be doing noting.

Been there 2 years ago thought for what you see just going around Georges island it wasnt worth the price but with the groupon it was a nice change of scenery. Would not have gone without the groupon though

From Our Editors

Buoyed by the winds and guided by skilled crews, the Tall Ship Silva and tall ship _Mar_—a 130-foot schooner and a 75-foot ketch respectively—allow passengers to explore Halifax Harbour while gently cresting swells and gliding across calm waters. Morning, afternoon, evening, and moonlit tours leave whenever conditions permit. These outings can provide guests with distinctive views of the Halifax skyline, George's Island and its iconic lighthouse, and any marine life that happens to swim past the vessels. Although passengers have the opportunity to simply sit back and enjoy the sights, they can also take a more active role by asking about local landmarks or assisting crew members as they set sails and blow into the mainmast whenever the winds die down.

The Tall Ship Silva and the Mar also cater to groups' needs by providing them with access to modern amenities throughout each voyage. Each vessel includes below-deck lounging areas, washroom facilities, and a fully licensed bar area where guests can savour anything from a locally brewed beer to a single-malt scotch. The larger Tall Ship Silva also has space for additional features intended to make outings every more luxurious. A wide outdoor deck lined with varnished wood seating allows as many as 150 passengers to pick their favourite view of the harbour and settle in for a while.
