Carnival Victory Shore Excursions in Canada

Carnival Cruises offers four- and five-day cruises to New England and Canada, departing from New York and taking in cities and towns up the eastern coast. If you grow tired of all the facilities on board, such as children's clubs, discos and a swimming pool, you can choose from one of the many shore excursions that are available. You can find something for everyone in their brochure, whether you love the great outdoors, history or sampling local produce.

Stay on the Water

In Halifax, you can join the crew of the tall ship Silva for a 1-1/2-hour trip around the harbor. You can sit back and enjoy the view, or join in and get some hands-on experience of sailing this historic vessel. Your captain will keep you entertained with anecdotes about the region, and hot drinks are served to make sure you don't feel the chill. The trip begins and ends at the Halifax boardwalk, a short walk from the cruise ship harbor. Other activities on the water include a whale watching tour along the coastline of George's and McNab's Islands and an adventurous excursion on a working fishing vessel.

Refresh Yourself

The town of Saint John offers the chance to go on shore and learn more about the Canadian Moosehead brewery before sampling some of its beers yourself. The excursion includes a tour round the town, ending at a popular local bar when you can drink with the locals. You can also take a tour of the historic pubs to be found in Halifax, sampling a local beer in each before being serenaded by pipers through the streets of the town or enjoying a lobster cook out in the town of Fundy Bay.

Active Excursions

Explore the Saint John River and its wildlife from an unusual angle with a trip in a sea kayak. No experience is necessary for the trip, which lasts around 1 hour and ends with a lobster bake on the beach. Another popular active excursion is to the town of Peggy's Cove near Halifax, which is home to a number of hiking trails through the natural wilderness. You can also explore further inland and visit local vineyards.
