The rugged coastline of Nova Scotia embodies pure maritime charm and small-town friendliness from within the fishing villages dotted along the shore. The brightly painted cottages and salt-scented air of two of the south shore’s standouts, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay, make for an idyllic day of exploring with Gray Line Halifax.
Lunenburg, a tiny coastal gem and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the perfect place to wander away an afternoon. Explore the picturesque side streets, or visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic to learn more about the livelihood of Lunenburg’s residents. The cheerfully colored buildings populating the waterfront are originals, some dating back to the 18th century.
There are more postcard-perfect sights to be seen in Mahone Bay, just a short drive along the Atlantic coastline. Tucked into the craggy shores of its namesake bay, this popular destination known for the get-away-from-it-all setting is home to art galleries, maritime museums, and an annual boat festival, drawing thousands of seafaring travelers each year. Your day along the wildly beautiful coastline of Nova Scotia is sure to take your breath away.
Tour is approximately 6 hours long and begins at 10:00 am.
