“See the skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Do you want a good view of the skyline of Halifax? Are you annoyed finding a parking space and expensive parking in a town? Take the ferry from Dartmouth to Halifax!

“The Harvour Ferry is a must do !!!!!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The Harvour Ferry is a must do !!!!!!!!! , I had to jump on the Ferry as I had been to Halifax a 100 times and never taken the ferry ride. I just went across and back. I enjoyed it and the sites and boats to see where amazing well worth a few bucks .

“Cheap thrills!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Go to Dartmouth on the open-deck ferry for $5 and save yourself the price of the tourist-trap boats next door. It's the same trip around the harbour. You get the same smell and the same view, but you save enough money to buy supper. Nice.

“Cheap Boat Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

For $2 you can ride back and forth between Halifax and Dartmouth across Halifax Harbour. If you are visiting the city, this is great value as you dont have to get off until you are ready, and a few trips back and forth will allow you to see all that's going on in the harbour
