Webcams Halifax Nova Scotia

The wharves by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic are home to two historic ships, the museum’s own CSS Acadia and HMCS Sackville, Canada’s Naval Memorial.

CSS Acadia was launched in 1913 and was the first vessel specifically designed to survey Canada’s northern waters. Acadia also holds the distinction of being the only surviving ship to have served the Royal Canadian Navy during both world wars. She served as a patrol and escort vessel from 1916 to 1919. She received minor damage in the Halifax Explosion in 1917 while acting as a guard ship in Bedford Basin, making her the only vessel still afloat today to have survived the Halifax Explosion.

HMCS Sackville is the last of Canada’s 123 corvettes, one of many convoy escort vessels built in Canada and the United Kingdom during WW II. She is Canada’s oldest fighting warship and has been our official Naval Memorial since 1985. It is very appropriate that the ship is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as this “East Coast Port” was an important assembly point and destination for convoys during the Battle of the Atlantic.
