I took my two sons (ages 5 & 8) to visit HMCS Haida yesterday. We had a great time. The park employees and the Haida Volunteers were amazing. There were very informative and helpful. The HMCS Haida is a wonderful piece of Canadian history. My kids loved exploring the ship and learning about what life was like on it when... More

The last surviving warship which saw action in WW 2. Refurbished. Available to tour. Should not be missed by anyone who wishes to see what it was like onboard a real fighting ship in WW 2.

The Haida is the last remaining Canadian destroyer from WWII. The ship is completely intact and you can self tour almost all of the ship. Considering the decades of exposure to the elements it is in excellent shape. Be aware that this was an actual warship from the 1940's - it is NOT updated to modern accessibility standards. The tour... More

My sister's family came to visit and we went to the HMCS Haida. What a great choice !! An absolutely amazingly, interesting and insightful experience. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, and there was lots to interact with and see. You are able to see much of the boat including battle operational areas, canteen and rooms. Highly worth a visit !!

Definitely worth the $3.90 entrance fee. Arrows and plaques lead you through the ship and provide a fairly comprehensive tour. Bit of a rough neighborhood.

A great family day-out for under $10 (including free parking)! We were 2 adults and 2 boys (ages 6 & 7) who spent almost 3 hours exploring the ship. When you buy your tickets ask for the Parcs Canada booklet for kids, it has lots of activities and tasks for the kids to complete while exploring the ship. They will... More

It is a great way to visit a rare ship of Canada that fought in the second world war and saw real action at sea. This is not just a peace keeping ship. You must be careful walking around on the deck especially if you are used to walking on vessels. I would caution against small children and people with... More
