Tall Ship Sailing / Pirate Cruises
The Mar is a 75 foot wooden ketch and offers daily sailing tours of Halifax Harbour. Passengers can choose from a number of tour types including afternoon pirate cruise, cocktail cruise, party cruise, and moonlight cruise. The vessel is also available for private charters.
Step back in time aboard our wooden tall ship the Mar for an authentic Halifax sailing experience. Join our Pirate Captain and his crew of outlaws and see where the wind takes you. Passengers have the opportunity to help hoist the sails, steer the wheel, and help the crew count down to the firing of the cannon. Fun for adults and children alike!
