This small, quaint fishing village is a picture perfect stop for tourists to Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. The Cove itself is still busy with local fisherman hard at work getting ready for fishing, bringing in their catch, or repairing their fishing gear, lobster traps, and boats.
Although busy they are friendly and enjoy answering questions or simply passing the time chatting with visitors. Peggy’s Cove has a classic red-and-white lighthouse with an automated light still maintained by the Canadian Government.
The lighthouse is situated on an extensive granite out crop at Peggy’s. Point, immediately south of the village and it’s cove. Visitors can explore the granite out crop around the lighthouse, but they need to use cation near the water! Despite the warning signs posted about wet slippery rocks and unpredictable surf, visitors have slipped on the dark wet rocks or have been swept off the rocks by waves, sometimes drowning. Please be careful on the rocks.
1. Peggy’s Cove is spectacular!
“We were a group of 6 on a cruise ship. Doug picked us up as scheduled and we proceeded to the Titanic cemetery. Then we drove to Peggy’s Cove with a lot of interesting stops on the way. A wonderful lady named Mary, who has an art gallery, let us take pictures and gave each of us a souvenir dragonfly that she had painted. Everyone loved the stop at the lobster shop where the owner gave a demonstration on the lobster industry. Peggy’s Cove is spectacular. On the way back to the ship, Doug took us to a seafood restaurant for a lobster lunch. Doug was well-verses in the history and culture of the area and really made the tour special.”

2. Best of Halifax in one day!
We were in port for one day on a Canadian Cruise. Doug picked us up early right outside the terminal. We packed in a ton of sights, meet some great local people and had a fantastic local lunch. Doug was so easy to talk to and you felt like you were spending the day with an old friend. We toured the beautiful coastline, the Titanic cemetery, the Citadel, and my favorite Peggy’s Cove. Also, a great lunch at The Finer Diner. I recommend this tour for anyone.
