Overview

HMCS Sackville, the last remaining Flower Class corvette in the world, symbolizes the extraordinary effort of Canadians seventy years ago during the Second World War. Restored to her wartime configuration she serves as a museum and memorial to those lost during the Battle of the Atlantic and to honour those who serve and continue to serve in the Naval Service of Canada. HMCS Sackville is berthed at Sackville Landing adjacent to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the summer and in HMC Dockyard during the winter.

Historic vessel from the second world war, gives an insight as to the courage of the sailors who took this small boat out into the Atlantic to protect convoys, They must have handled well at sea. Well worth a look.

We went June 13, 2017. The ship has been moved temporarily, to the Navy Ship yard, for maintenance. Had visited it 6 years ago. A gentleman showed us around and explained the history of the ship.

Tour a working navy ship, tends to be crowded on nice days. Once you get on the ship there is no turning around. I was not thrilled with going below deck- a bit claustrophobic but nothing horrible. I would recommend to kids over 8-9

It's getting a look at the past in a very hands on way, being able to go through every area of the boat. It is basic, but still shows you what life was like for these sailors. We love to take or send visitors there,...More

By the end of WW II, Canada had one of the largest navies on the world, albeit mainly with smaller ships like destroyers and corvettes. The HMCS Sackville is a fine example of a corvette used for convoy duty during WW II. It is worth...More
