Halifax harbour

Most towns that have an ocean, sea, lake or river in the vicinity provide some means for a tourist to float on water. Row boats are a lot of fun, while tour boats and ferries are restrictive but can give you a different perspective on a place.

Sunset over Halifax harbour.In Halifax there are a plethora of different boating opportunities ranging from deep sea fishing to the humble Dartmouth ferry. The tour that we went on, arranged by the conference that Shana was attending, was a simple trip around the harbour.

Sunsets seen from water are often more interesting than when seen on land, and on our trip we where rewarded with an interesting sky. The container port’s large cranes added an industrial silhouette, which unfortunately loses something in the small format that I have to use on the web.
