About This Experience

At just $2.75, the 15-minute ride across the harbour on the Alderney Ferry from Halifax to Downtown Dartmouth is a must-do Halifax experience for visitors and locals alike.

Expect amazing harbour views, plenty of photo-ops, and transportation to a unique community with an up-and-coming craft beverage scene, exciting food culture, funky boutiques, urban art, and more.

Halifax Transit Ferry Service crosses from the Halifax Waterfront to Dartmouth’s Alderney Landing terminal and to the Woodside terminal every 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the time of day. The ferries take approximately 15 minutes to travel between Dartmouth and Halifax.

Schedules and terminal information are available on the Halifax Transit website.


LOCAL TIP: When you arrive in Downtown Dartmouth, head to Portland Street and grab a “Crobster Roll” at The Canteen or a cider at Lake City Cider!
