The Halifax Seaport is a vibrant arts and cultural district found at the south end of the Halifax waterfront. Extending from Piers 19 to 23, you will find artisans, retailers, cruise terminals, event facilities, cafés, galleries, offices, a museum, a university and a farmers’ market. This district has been redeveloped to showcase local talent and is now a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

Offering full-service cruise terminals and more than 2,000 feet (611 metres) of continuous berth space. The Halifax Seaport is equipped with infrastructure to accommodate the world’s largest cruise ships.

Piers 22 and 20 are the principle cruise ship berths offering passengers direct ship-to-shore access to HPA’s dedicated cruise passenger terminals, Pavilions 22 and 20. Pavilion 22 offers cruise passengers and crew unique and friendly shopping experience and Pavilion 20 offers an open, barrier-free space ideal for gathering tours.
