We will journey back hundreds of years when we finish our short boat ride and make our way onto the shores of McNab's Island.
Home to a number of historical forts, this island, situated at the mouth of the Halifax Harbour has a vast history that includes ghosts, treasure and even sea serpents. Keep your camera handy as the island is home to a large number of fox, deer and various species of birds.

We will then relax by the ocean and enjoy a healthy picnic lunch prepared by your guides from local ingredients, including various fruits, vegetables, breads, cheese, dips, pepperoni and smoked salmon (vegetarian & vegan friendly).
