Taking a Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruise is watching whales and seabirds – and much more. It is also joining a scientific survey studying an area teeming with marine life.

Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises will be at this year's Halifax International Boat Show show to discuss their experience with whales and marine life. Come meet the experts in person and learn more about the amazing creatures that inhabit the water surrounding our province!

Lunenburg's Bounty

In 1960, when MGM needed an ocean-going replica of The Bounty for a block-bluster movie, there were few places in the world that still had the expertise to build wooden ships. But Lunenburg, Nova Scotia did - resulting in an incredible story of a town returning to its boatbuilding roots and gaining fame on the movie screen.

Author and filmmaker Geoff D’Eon takes us through a Nova Scotian success story at the following times in the Prospect Theatre:

Saturday at 4:30 pm 
Sunday at 1:30 pm
