When the tall ships came to Halifax we went to see them. Very interesting to see and also went on board the ship from the US that trains the sea cadets. They gave lots of information, and were very polite and professional.

A tourist trap -- overpriced, overcrowded, too short. We paid $73 CAD for two adults, including a $4 fuel surcharge. NOTE: This is a sailboat. With actual sails. That the crew used for about five minutes. Even though the breeze was sufficient for us to...More
