Fall is in the air and Halifax will once again be painted with Mother Nature’s artistic brush in a vibrant palette of reds, yellows, oranges and gold. Join us in celebrating this wonderful season on one of our Fall Colours Tours aboard the Tall Ship Silva.

This two-hour sail begins in the Halifax harbour, passes alongside Point Pleasant Park and into the Northwest Arm where the fall foliage will be particularly impressive during this time of year. We’ll share notable commentary while you sip your complementary hot apple cider and enjoy the spectacular sights, all while cozying up with your ‘bubble’.

Whether you are a native Haligonian or visiting from within the Atlantic bubble, this tour is something that everyone should experience at least once in their life!

Please dress for the season and feel free to bring your own warm blanket or you’re welcome to use one of ours!
