Vessel Transportation

We are pleased to offer complimentary transportation to COVE for our out-of-town guests. The vessel will bring guests from the Halifax waterfront to COVE in the morning and back at the end of the event.

Closing Reception – During the return trip, passengers will enjoy an exclusive 60-minute On-Water Closing Reception, including a customized 60-minute Halifax Harbour cruise and a cash bar.

The voyage from Halifax Waterfront to COVE in Dartmouth departs at 9:15 AM sharp on June 14th from The Cable Wharf (1751 Lower Water St). The departing voyage leaves COVE in Dartmouth at 2:30 PM and arrives at The Cable Wharf in Halifax at 3:30 PM. There will only be one ride each way, so we strongly encourage prompt arrival time to allow for check-in. If the boat reaches capacity or you miss the departures, guests will be required to find their own way (see below for options). We will not be offering one-way rides.

To participate in this complimentary vessel transportation and the closing reception trip, registration is mandatory and must be done individually for each travelling guest. The deadline to register is Wednesday, June 7th (5:00 PM AST). Space is limited, and is first come, first serve.
