Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk

Browse personal items that survived the Titanic, enjoy dinner with a sea view and shop in the lively market along this scenic walkway.

Get acquainted with Halifax's maritime history and enjoy a scenic waterfront dinner when you stroll along the Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk. The partially paved and wooden walkway extends for approximately 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) and features some of the city’s most fascinating museums and sights. 

Start at the southern end and visit the historic Pier 21. Between 1928 and 1971 more than 1 million immigrants took their first steps on Canadian soil at this point. Learn about their experiences of starting life in a new country when you visit the Canadian Museum of Immigration. View immigration records and watch video testimonials from refugees and war orphans, among others.

Continue your stroll northward along the boardwalk to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. View shipwreck artifacts and visit exhibitions on two maritime disasters that affected the area: the Halifax Explosion and the sinking of the Titanic. Find out about the tragic explosion that killed 2,000 people in 1917 and discover Halifax’s role in the aftermath of the Titanic going down.

Go to the wharves behind the museum and step aboard one of the highlights of its collections, the CSS Acadia. This research ship was launched in 1913 and served in both world wars. Visit the bridge and chart room and the officers’ quarters.

Don’t miss the excitement of Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market. The large indoor market hosts more than 250 vendors and claims to be the longest continually running market in North America. Purchase fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods and fish that has just come off the boat. If you are looking for souvenirs, you’ll find several vendors selling handcrafted garments and jewelry. 

The boardwalk is also a lovely place to visit in the evening. Find a table at one of the fish restaurants and dine with magnificent views over the water. Sample oysters, salmon and lobster.

The Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk is a short stroll from the city center. Access is available 24 hours a day. Several bus routes stop at the Halifax Ferry Terminal, which is located just north of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic along the walkway.
