The Parks Canada website says it opens Victoria Day weekend but....hmm not open Victoria Day. A 3 hour drive for nothing! Closed Monday's - Wednesdays! Could only look at the outside from the pier! :(

You will enjoy your visit to Haida. We take all our visitor to see Haida. The area is also a scenic area in Hamilton. Lots of nice places for a picnic

To be perfectly honest the ship itself will probably fascinate mainly those interested in war technology. You can touch the former weapons, tour the ship. Moving around is sometimes tricky due to very uneven decks, lot's of ladders to climb up and down and many narrow passages. The HMCS Haida is worth a visit though purely to see a warship... More

A very well preserved piece of Canadian Naval History. The guides onboard were very interesting to listen to as we toured the ship. The had lots of insight to the daily lives of the men serving onboard. The ship maybe difficult to tour if you are unsteady on your feet or have trouble with stairs but well worth the effort...

Unbelievable really. To walk, and touch and handle and actually feel a Corvette that actually saw action in the Atlantic theater against Hitler's U-boats. Almost overwhelming. Wonderful history for kids or grand dad. Part 2 awaits you at the Warplane Heritage Museum.

The working life on HMCS Haida has been preserved in time and is an excellent show of our naval past. There are narrow passages but it has been preserved to show what life on the ship was in actuality. The staff were great with in-depth descriptions for any questions. It is an excellent place to visit for any age. We... More
