Tall Ship Silva Sailing Cruise

by Gray Line Ambassatours Duration 1h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

Relax on board Eastern Canada’s largest 3-masted schooner as you take in views of Halifax's shoreline and the beautiful lighthouse on Georges Island. Feel the wind gently tilt the ship from side to side and hear the sails billowing as you sip a cold drink on the open decks of Tall Ship Silva.

As you step aboard the majestic ship in Halifax Harbour, journey back in time to an era when these beautiful vessels were in their prime. Explore the authentic timber-built tall ship and set sail around the peaceful harbour of Halifax, taking in splendid views of the skyline. Take incredible photos of waterfront landmarks and scenery as you skim over the waves.

Listen to insightful commentary from your captain, who provides an excellent overview of the sights as well as the fascinating history of tall ships. This is a great time to try your hand at on-board activities like hauling in lines, helping to hoist the sails with the crew or lending a hand at the helm. Kids can join in on Junior Sailor activities and earn gold chocolate coins from the captain as they cruise. If you'd prefer to leave the sailing to the experts, you can just sit back with a drink and admire the views before returning to the harbour to continue your visit of Halifax on dry land.
