Excursion Description

The two most popular ‘must see’ sites; Halifax; Peggy’s Cove and city highlights.  

  • Today, see both as you experience an informative narrated excursion of Halifax, including a drive by historic properties, a restored section of the waterfront, Citadel Hill and the beautiful public gardens before heading out to Peggy’s Cove. 
  • On this excursion you will travel along the scenic coastal highway to the tiny village of Peggy’s Cove, where less then 60 residents live year around. 
  • See the brightly colored houses nestled close to the water’s edge in this working rustic fishing village. 
  • As you enter the cove, drive by the deGarthe monument, carved from a massive slab of granite by local artist William deGarthe and a tribute to the people of Peggy’s Cove. 
  • Your guide will also spin tales of the Cove, explain how it got its name, tell you the story of its lighthouse, and talk about the lobster fishery, which is the backbone of the local economy. 
  • There is also an optional live lobster demonstration from your guide if you wish.  
  • Explore the village on your own and if you choose, there is plenty of time to visit a few of the shops and galleries. 
  • Return to the pier via air-conditioned coach. 

NOTE: Stop at Peggy’s Cove is approximately one hour. Warm clothing, a raincoat, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
