Tourists and local residents interested in Halifax’s seafaring history will be able to learn all about it on the Metro Transit ferry this summer.

A theatrical production called Ferry Boat Tales will be preformed daily on the Halifax-Dartmouth ferry throughout the summer, beginning Canada Day. They will run Tuesday to Saturday every week until Aug. 31.

The performances are a part of the regular fare for anyone on the 2:15 p.m. ferry from Halifax to Dartmouth’s Alderney Landing, or the 2:30 p.m. ferry back to Halifax.


The performers are expected to entertain ferryboat passengers with stories of shipwrecks in the harbour, nighttime escapes in wartime, and about the Halifax explosion, according to a news release from the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and HRM are presenting the Ferry Boat Tales and the tale tellers members of local theatre group DaPopo.
