Step aboard The Violet Mac and embark on a truly unique experience—our 60-minute Halifax Harbour Tour is our signature waterfront cruise that combines the beauty of Nova Scotia’s capital city with the benefits of an all-electric, no-noise, and zero-exhaust boat. With its 1930s-style charm and eco-friendly design, The Violet Mac stands apart as the only all-electric tour vessel on the Halifax Harbour.
A Truly Unique Halifax Harbour Tour
As you settle into the quaint and comfortable interior of The Violet Mac, you’ll immediately notice the hand-made seating arrangements that can accommodate up to eight passengers. We believe that a leisurely boat tour should be enjoyed in utmost comfort, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the stunning Halifax Harbour—and not the noise and rumble of a fossil-fuel-powered motor.
Because, you see, what truly sets our Halifax harbour tour apart is the tranquility it offers. Unlike traditional boats that emit noisy engine sounds and contribute to air pollution, our all-electric vessel glides through the water silently, providing a serene and peaceful experience. You’ll be able to engage in conversation with your fellow passengers without the distraction of engine rumblings, creating an intimate and relaxing atmosphere.
The environmental benefits of our all-electric boat tour are twofold. Firstly, by choosing an electric-powered vessel, we significantly reduce our carbon footprint, contributing to the preservation of Nova Scotia’s natural beauty. This commitment to sustainability aligns with our dedication to protecting the environment and ensuring that future generations can enjoy the splendor of the Halifax Harbour.
Secondly, the absence of exhaust emissions means that our boat leaves behind no harmful air nor water pollutants. This is especially crucial when exploring a marine environment, where the health of aquatic life depends on clean and unpolluted waters. By opting for our zero-exhaust tour, you actively contribute to the preservation of the Halifax Harbour’s delicate ecosystem, showcasing your commitment to responsible tourism.
