I went with my 9 year old son. You can't beat the price for such an amazing experience. Most of the ship is open, and being able to wander around freely exploring everything was great. My son was amazed at how large one of these ships is in person, he had only ever seen these things on TV. This is... More

The tribal class destroyer is an amazing piece of history that is incredibly accessible. I stumbled on this site while searching tripadvisor for fun things to do on our way to Niagara Falls. I only wish I would have allocated more time. My wife and I spent a hour and a half on could have used another 30 minutes at... More

We enjoyed the Haida. We got into most places on her and read most of the info boards. We were met buy a volunteer who took us into several areas and told us more info and history, stories etc... It is a well kept ship and everyone working around were happy to be there. Thanks for a great visit. Highly... More

My husband,granddaughter and myself toured the HAIDA.The HAIDA is an AMAZING WAR SHIP to tour. The CREW working on board gave us a lot of information and showed us how the many duties were performed. They made it fun for our 8 year old granddaughter to enjoy and understand about the HAIDA. I found this tour very sentimental because my... More

The Haida is a wonderful location for young and old alike to explore and learn about history. You can tour the entire ship and there are interesting bits of information available so you can learn on your own or take advantage of one of the knowledgeable volunteers. One gentleman we spoke with had served on the Haida and he was... More

Took our grand son to see the Haida as he is fascinated with ships and planes. This was a great experience for him although he had many more questions than I had answers. It will take another visit at least to see everything as it is difficult to move around in some of the areas due to the tight quarters... More

I had no idea that this was in our back yard, Canadians should be proud. The tour of this ship takes a couple of hours and well worth it. They do an amazing job with kids as they have a scavenger type hunt for the kids to do while Mom and Dad pick up on the history of this amazing... More

This has got to be the best deal in town for a high quality attraction- under $8.00 for 2 adults. We've seen aircraft carriers before (Lexington in Corpus Christie) but never a tribal destroyer. The self guided tour was laid out with a brochure and good signage. We actually read every sign! The idea of having a secret question to... More

First off where can you go with the family for $9.80. I am sad to say I live here and this was our first time visiting the Haida. We had so much fun here. My youngest kept calling the ship a Battleship but for him he got to climb all over a Destroyer Class Vessel and have a blast doing... More
