Peggy’s Cove Tour with Lobster Roll Lunch

This tour offers a wide variety of stops that will amaze you and will take you to places off the beaten path! Drive past scenic bays, through small fishing villages and learn about Nova Scotia’s rich history.

The first stop is the SS Atlantic Heritage Park. The SS Atlantic was the worst single-vessel marine disaster to occur prior to the Titanic. At the SS Atlantic Heritage Park, visit the interpretative centre (open mid-May -October 31) to see artifacts from the ship and then walk out to the memorial and enjoy the peacefulness and picturesque scenery of the bay.

Then it’s onto Peggy’s Cove where you’ll be able to have time to browse the various gift shops and capture the waves as they crash on the rocks in front of the famous lighthouse. Nearby is the Swiss Air Memorial where you’ll learn about this tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of 229 people.

Included in the tour is a tasty lunch at The Finer Diner, overlooking beautiful Hackett’s Cove. Savour one of their delicious Lobster Rolls and learn about our blossoming wine industry while you enjoy a glass of Nova Scotia wine with your lunch (optional). Other menu items are available including land, vegetarian and vegan options.

After lunch we’ll head back to the city to visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery to see the Titanic Gravesite and hear the heroic and sad stories of some of these victims. We’ll also talk about the devastating Halifax Explosion of 1917 which killed thousands, injured thousands more and destroyed a whole section of the city. We’ll meander back to downtown Halifax and the port pointing out more points of interest along the way.
