  • steer the ship with the Captain

"A Seafaring World" is suitable for all ages: Junior Kindergarten, Elementary, High School, Special Needs and Adult Groups.

After Prom

Sail Halifax Harbour, rockin' with our DJ on the open air dance floor. After prom, have a pizza party and unlimited soft drinks... It's new, unique and cool! Teachers and parents can relax knowing that students will be in an enjoyable, yet controlled atmosphere.

University Students

Sail Halifax Harbour, dancing to our DJ or a live band on the open air dance floor and a fully licensed bar. This is a great option during orientation week!
