Here’s your chance to connect with some super-fun stuff while supporting local, small businesses. From quiet cruises along the bustling waterfront to cage diving with sharks, there’s something here for everyone.

Basically, we’re friends with six really cool small businesses that make adventure their middle name, check ’em out …

Halifax Harbour Tours

Step aboard The Violet Mac, Halifax Harbour’s only all-electric, ultra-quiet boat, and experience the city from its vibrant waterfront. Offering both public and private cruises, Halifax Harbour Tours provides a serene way to explore the scenic views and maritime culture of the area.

Last summer we managed to take in an evening skyline tour and it was truly special. The quiet makes for great conversation, the pace makes for a relaxing time, and the crew make it worth it with an unobtrusive, laid back tour.
