Extremely over-hyped and overrated tourist attraction.
Sail Date: July 2019
Extremely over-hyped and overrated tourist attraction. No need to ever seek out Peggy's Cove except maybe as a pit stop on a thorough all day excursion. Only saving grace was well spoken guide on bus ride back.

Peggy's Cove was amazing, as were the Maritime Museum (Titanic aftifacts) and the Citadel. But, best of all was our guide, Mel - He loves his city and knows all about it. He told us things about the Swiss Air disaster that occurred near Peggy's Cove and how the city took in stranded 9-11 airplane passengers, who were grounded there. He even went in the restaurant and brought out a male and female lobster and taught us the difference! Read Less

Rented a minivan with Dollar (located in the lobby of the Hotel across the street- took us a while to find the place because there was no signs) It takes like 50 minutes to get there but it is a beautiful drive. Peggy's cove is beautiful. Our family loved it. It was super cold for us (we are from PR so our average temp is in the 90’s) Be sure to dress in layers and wear a good jacket (most people had gloves, hats, jackets) There is a restaurant there and a shop with nice souvenirs. There are also restrooms in the shop. Including the minivan and gas it was like $12- $14 per person. Read Less

Halifax A larger city, and though there are things to do in town, but best is to travel outside. You have to take a short shuttle ride from the ship to the terminal, people lined up. I did a packed ship's excursion to Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, and Mahone. The restaurant at Peggy's , Sou'est, had wonderful seafood and great service in a stunning setting, is a lot like northern CA. Lunenberg is a cute town with Germanic history and a sad memorial to hundreds of local men who died at sea, but most venues were closed, as it was too early in the season. It would be lovely in warmer weather and independently. Mahone did not have enough to justify a 50 minute stop. Read Less

We did the lobster lunch and Peggy's Cove tour. Our tour guide was great and filled with local knowledge and pride. The lobster was fine, but the star of the show is Peggy's Cove. As a photographer, I appreciated that we had at least 1 hour (if you eat quickly) to explore and appreciate this wonderful place. Read Less
