Halifax Cruise Port Tours

On the edge of the Atlantic Ocean is Halifax, the largest city in Atlantic Canada and the Maritimes. Get out on foot and explore what this east coast capital has to offer, whether it’s strolling the waterfront’s boardwalk, navigating Citadel Hill, or listening to live music at a local pub.

How to get to Halifax

Cruises dock at the Seaport, where there is immediate access to the Metro Transit bus system, Halifax taxis, and limousines. A 10-minute walk will take you straight to the downtown area, where you can peruse local boutiques, visit museums like the Canadian Museum of Immigration, or simply snap photos of the city’s busy waterfront and boardwalk area.

One Day in Halifax

Fortunately, many of Halifax’s highlights are just a short distance from the city’s port. If you love history, visit the Canadian Museum of Immigration, or the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Visit Citadel Hill for some insight into Canada’s earliest years, or take in the view of the city from the tower.

Take your pick of shopping options along Spring Garden Road, and wander through the Public Gardens. When the sun sets, indulge in a lobster dinner and head out to the nearest pub for some live music and pints of Alexander Keith’s.  

Port Information

Of all the Atlantic Canadian cities, Halifax gets the most cruise traffic. More than 15 different cruise lines operate here, including Princess, Carnival, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Oceania, and more. All local businesses accept Canadian currency only, and English is most widely spoken (although French is Canada’s other official language).
