  • Murphys The Cable Wharf
    He wears a beaming smile and a red cap, beneath which his eyes turn to meet those of the happy children who pass his way. He is 65 feet tall. He is a boat. The fleet at Murphy's The Cable Wharf also includes seven other vessels, but the most recognizable is surely Theodore Too: an enormous, custom-built life-size replica of the friendly Theodore Tugboat, star of the CBC children's television show of the same name. He was originally commissioned to sail up and down the Eastern Seaboard, giving kids a chance to take harbor cruises that were previously only possible in their daydreams, until eventually the staff of Murphy's stepped in to give him a permanent home. Theodore Too wasn't the first remarkable vessel in the Murphy's fleet. In the early 1980s, Captain Gerald Murphy purchased the Mar, a seasoned tall ship that had sailed around the world twice and been the subject of a documentary. He used this storied vessel to establish Murphy's The Cable Wharf, a sailing and tour company based in Halifax Harbour. With ships in the water, Murphy also planned a restaurant—repurposing the old Cable Ship Terminal, which was built in 1913 and had long been dormant. Decades later, Murphy's nautical vision lives on. The Mar still glides across harbour waters for themed sailing tours and pirate cruises. The spacious Haligonian III embarks on whale-watching excursions that bring passengers face-to-face with minke whales and dolphins, and the Harbour Queen I—an old-fashioned Mississippi-style sternwheeler—embarks on narrated history tours. The wharf restaurant, meanwhile, continues the nautical theme on dry land, showing off unobstructed views of the waterfront. It even brings a bit of the sea indoors: a lobster tank filled with more than 300 live crustaceans lets guests net their own meals, while a touch tank brings them face-to-face with native marine life. Coastal dishes, from a buttery lobster roll to pan-fried haddock, fuel more maritime adventures.

  • East Coast Outfitters
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_CA title: East Coast Outfitters facet_type_id: 8e7cf680-5f41-1032-bdf7-b97c49e45d2c html_text: |- Long before its first kayak hit the water, East Coast Outfitters (ECO) established a commitment to helping the local community as well as the environment. The eco-tourism company is based in the small fishing village of Lower Prospect, which suffered a massive collapse in the groundfishing industry. To help the town recover, the company started employing residents as guides, maintenance workers, and even office managers. Today, ECO put the area's cultural heritage and abundant wildlife on display at the same time through sea kayak tours and watercraft rentals. Every tour and skill-building or certification class departs ECO's floating wharf under the watchful eye of at least one expert guide. These guides have all completed a rigorous eight-month training program, and are certified by Paddle Canada and in Wilderness First Aid, making them quite capable of assisting paddlers. Most excursions are suitable for all experience levels and range from the half-day to multi-day tour, plus special trips at sunset. Tour guides lead kayaks past the rocky coasts of wild islands and explore sheltered inlets. Sometimes, local wildlife such as eagles, seals, and whales make appearances.

  • Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
    From its founding in 1908, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has brought residents the chance to see historic and contemporary art from across the province, continent, and globe. The collection—all 15,000-plus pieces of it—focuses primarily on artists with ties to Nova Scotia, including Maud Lewis, whose life story rivals her paintings in color and vibrance. The tiny house in which she lived and painted, itself a work of art, is on permanent display in Halifax, the result of joint rescue efforts from the gallery and the province. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia stepped up its commitment to making local and international art accessible to all citizens with the 2006 opening of the Western Branch, located in Yarmouth. While the branch is still not old enough to drive or apply to art school, the building is as historic as the work it contains, complete with Corinthian flourishes and a cornerstone laid in 1912.

  • Putting Edge Halifax
    Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 18 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.

  • Storm Warning Paintball
    At Storm Warning Paintball, combatants wage war with pigmented missiles fired year-round on indoor and outdoor fields. Outdoor warriors pull on modern-day chainmail and strategically assess the layout of a forested field with multilevelled wooden structures or the inflatable obstacles scattered about the grassy X Ball Sup Air field. Indoor paint-slingers crouch behind barrels and track foes through thermal lens goggles, before shellacking them into human replicas of The Scream with Tippmann 98 paintball markers.

  • Great Earth Expeditions
    Coastal mountains. White sand beaches. Secluded coves. Red sandstone cliffs. Towers of volcanic basalt that vanish beneath the world's highest tides. Nova Scotia's diverse landscape is its own thunderous epic, with vistas unspoiled by humans or squirrels with builder's permits. And wherever Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions takes its groups of visitors within this landscape, the intent is always the same—to give them an experience that "reaches the heart." Ryan Barry has been exploring Nova Scotia for years, bringing back few souvenirs beyond the inspiration for his next blog post, and turning his passion for Nova Scotia and its nature into a business. By leaving the lightest carbon footprint possible—often just literal human footprints, or the wake of a kayak's paddle—he and his team are able to guide adventurers to places unreachable by less environmental methods, such as gas-belching motorboats or riding a polar bear like a horse. The guides provide insights into the region's history and aboriginal folklore along the way, but it's ultimately the land and its colorful wildlife that fulfills Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions' motto.
