Thanks to its prime location, Halifax Harbour is generally the first port of call and the last outbound port for ships sailing across the Atlantic. The harbor includes the Northern Arm, the Bedford Basin, and a strait called the Narrows. Many piers and wharves extend out into the harbor under the jurisdiction of the Halifax Port Authority. The historic waterfront landmark also offers beautiful panoramas of the city and surrounding Atlantic coast. Head here during twilight with a loved one to admire the vista of twinkling lights from houses in Dartmouth across the harbor, enjoy a boat ride around Georges Island, or board a cruise to explore the best that Halifax has to offer. A visit to Halifax Harbour is a must for anyone looking to explore the very heart of the port city.
