Halifax is a beautiful little town but the best thing about it is where it's located. Nova Scotia was just splendid. I took my wife there for her birthday and she loved it! The best thing is to go down to Brier Island and go whale watching when the time is right (April - September). The Bay of Fundy is a prime spot for seeing Humpback whales. Also of great interest are the fabulous tides. The difference between low and high tide is astounding! For all you hockey fans, Nova Scotia was the birthplace of Hockey.

    That Whale-photo looks absolutely great... I wish I had such a pic, but during all my cruising I never saw these big whales in the open sea :-((

    Cool pic on intro page. I'm reading a book right now set in futuristic Canada, so I thought I'd look at some pics.

    A very nice page on Nova Scotia! Your tips are 'right on' regarding the scenery and the Bay of Fundy whale watching (its not bad in New Brunswick either) !!

    Good whale photo. Halifax is a great small city. If you come again, visit Prince Edward Island too. Magnificent red earth and beautiful beaches.

    Excellent tips and beautiful photos! I wish I read some of your tips before I went there! I had bad weather though, thick fog. I planned to go whalewatching, but didn't do it because of the weather. I see I really missed something!
