Stop At: Peggy's Cove, Peggy's Cove, Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia
Departing from your local accommodator or cruise dock We'll circle the Public Gardens and the Citadel, drive along the shores of the harbour, stop near the 1917 Explosion site and Bedford Basin and drive by the Titanic Cemetery.
Leaving the city behind us we will make our way toward Peggy’s Cove. Only 15 minutes outside the city on route to the cove you will see a remarkable change from the urban economy of the city to the rural economy of Nova Scotia. This means you will be seeing fishing coves, villages and wilderness views that are a photographer’s playland.
The next stop is one of the most photographed places in Canada and the most photographed lighthouse in North America: Peggy’s Cove. We’ll discuss the namesake of the area before entering the village.
Like stepping back in time, Fisherman’s cottages line the shore, with lobster pots, rowing boats and fishing nets paying testament to the fact that this is still a working community. Picturesque it may be, but Peggy’s Cove is alive and well. Signs directing the many visitors through the village stress the need to respect the inhabitants as they go about their working lives.
After a very brief orientation we’ll allow you and your group some time to self-explore the light house site, weather depending take in the sounds of the local bag piper, shop at the various artisan shops, take in a snack or lunch and satisfy your inner culture vulture at William deGarthe Art Gallery.
Leaving the fabled lighthouse behind We’ll be able to view, and if time permits, stop at the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial and discuss its impact on the local area. Then we will travel along a winding picturesque route toward Halifax. Be sure to let your guide know if you’d like a stop at the Acadian Maple Product retail store so you can learn about the Maple syrup industry in Nova Scotia or find the perfect gift to take home. Maple syrup doesn’t get any cheaper than where it is made.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Regarding your exploration and walk about at Peggy’s Cove; The rocks at water’s edge are as dangerous as they are iconic and if boundaries and warnings are not heeded there is a possibility of falling into the ocean. We have never lost anybody because so far everyone has heeded warnings, signage, and boundaries. We simply ask that you do that too.
