amazing tour, especially in the spring. Something different to do for only $30, they show you every historical place in Halifax and tell you their stories and then you end up in the ocean! Which is an amazing experience, like our guide said, life changing experience.

The green amphibian, was a fun and informative overview of the City. Easy to find, down near the docks and parking. The ride was quite bumpy getting in and out of the water, but the driver handled it quite well. We saw a sea lion in the inlet, and saw Prom Day in the gardens, from great vantage points. Crew...

This hour long tour around the downtown core (and into the water) gives you a snapshot of history and local traditions. It's a fun trip around, and give you an idea of places you might like to see more of. I highly recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip!

We enjoyed our tour. It's only an hour long- half on land and half in the water. The land portion passes most of the attractions you might want to visit on your own, so it's a good orientation to Halifax. The harbor portion wasn't terribly interesting (there's not really that much to see) but going into the water on the... More

A group of 6 friends from the States were spending 9 days in Nova Scotia and PEI trying to see as much as possible in that time frame. We only had one night and half day in Halifax so the best way to see the city was on a duck boat called the Harbour Hopper. We had a very energetic... More

We had pre booked this tour and unfortunately the weather was rainy. Because of the heavy plastic covering the open air vehicle we were unable to see any of the sights clearly. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable, but did little to enhance our tour.

Booked this tour on-line and after finding there location (could use a sign on Lower Water St.) to direct you in the right direction. Very informative tour of Halifax then out into the bay past the Navy ships and submarine. Always wanted to try a duck tour and we really enjoyed it.

We had such a good time on this tour! The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable about Halifax. It was fun to go out in the water and see the harbor. We like to do a tour first, so we can see what we'd like to do on our own. We felt like we learned a lot, it was reasonably... More

We selected the harbour hopper as our first excursion of the day ... it provided us with an overview of what Halifax had to offer, provided some local history and it was fun going from land to water in the same tour. The tour guide was a university student with quirky jokes ... but it made the tour entertaining. I'm... More

It is exactly what I expected it to be, which is a quick informative fun ride around Halifax. Nothing more, nothing less. The guide was a bit over the top at times, but hey, he's a university student trying to earn tips, so we'll forgive him for that.
