“Under construction”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Wonderful to watch the Bluenose being refurbised and later see her in Halifax Harbour.

The Bluenose II stands out among the Tall Ships that visit Halifax and so many other locations.

First time I saw her was with the Tall Ships visiting The Dockyard, Bermuda. The crew asked where I was from and laughed when I said Halifax!

“Bluenose was in pre-launch quarantine”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were there days before Bluenose 2.5 was due to be launched and it was impossible to get close to it.

“While the boat is in dry dock enjoy the town”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We went to look at the boat, really hard to find it and it was in dry dock, under scaffolding
No doubt a great boat but not at its best at present.

The town is a joy to walk around, full of history with different coloured houses, we spend an easy and enjoyable 2 hours wandering around

Some good coffee shops and well worth the trip

There is the fishing museum but our kids drew a line and refused to go, looked OK

Slightly reminiscent of an English seaside town
