  1. The best way to get to Peggy's Cove and then get back to Halifax in time to see other things is to rent a car or (expensive) hire a taxi. This document has more information about Halifax for cruise ship visitors, including a waterfront map, attractions, tour options are rental car information. There is no pass for visiting multiple attractions.
  2. It is the amazing movement of water and the difference between tides which is so special so only seeing one tide cannot give you the understanding of this. Many people who do not live near the ocean write about wanting to "walk on the ocean floor" which is just walking on the exposed land during a low tide. That may be of some interest to you so in that way low tide is better. However without seeing the extreme movement of the water over a period of six hours you are not experiencing what makes the Bay of Fundy and its tides so interesting.
  3.

  4. If you have not been to downtown Dartmouth for 20 years you will not recognize it. There are quite a few really good restaurants along with brewpubs.
  5. Are you talking about Saint John, New Brunswick or St. John's, Newfoundland?
  6. Here is the web site. It makes for a great little cruise. It is a fair way along the waterfront but a lovely walk along the waterfront. The Woodside ferry is less frequent but is a bit more interesting.
  7. The cruise pavilion in Halifax has lots of little shops and there are more along the waterfront. For locally made items check out Jennifers at the cruise pavilion but also a bigger shop on Spring Garden Road.
  8. Without tourists, Peggy's Cove is beautiful. There are the rocks and the lighthouse and then the cute little fishing cove. Going from a cruise ship I would only go using a taxi or rental car and getting there ASAP (or going later in the day.) Here is a document with lots of information for Halifax for Cruise Ship Passengers.
  9. If you do not need to pay cash for your private tour then just take out $20 or so dollars from an ATM. Make sure it is a bank ATM and not a stand alone as they charge extra fees. I am not sure about cabs and credit cards. I think some will take them.

  10. https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Attraction_Review-g499184-d8423471-Reviews-Red_Rock_Adventure-St_Martins_New_Brunswick.html What you need to determine is whether the timing for this will work for you.
