What People are Saying

Very friendly, experienced skipper and crew. The Beneteau’s were beautiful, fun boats. I enjoyed hoisting the sails and also just soaking in the sights.


Amazing time with friends out on the water with Brendan and Kip. Very friendly and we felt safe and enjoyed our ride. Highly recommended.



This was a very nicely organized sailing tour of the harbor around Halifax. Very friendly staff, boat in perfect condition, and a great 1.5 hour experience overall!


The captain and staff were so warm and hospitable! A great time was had by all! Beautiful, clean, safe boat!

We are located in the heart of downtown Halifax, directly on the Halifax Boardwalk. We are just a short, scenic walk from the Halifax Cruise Terminals. If you prefer, you can also take a 3 minute taxi ride to us.


At our location, you'll find our ticket & sailing gear store where our team can help with any questions you may have.
