A small island in the Halifax Harbor with a lighthouse and lots of history.

Georges Island is a historical site with tunnels, a lighthouse, and plenty of Halifax History.  It is located in the Halifax Harbor, and there are multiple ferries going to and from the island.  Once on the island, you can enjoy self guided tours and scenic views.  Remember to bring hiking or sturdy shoes.  Ferries generally operate until mid-October, when the season ends.
