I was so excited to discover Theodore the Tugboat in Halifax!! it was such a great little surprise, I loved the show when I was a child. Placed in a touristy area, but I was still able to snap a few photos!

Hi Nikki B, Glad that you were able to catch a glimpse of Theodore while in the Halifax Harbour. He's quite photogenic- isn't he?

We just saw Theodore parked at the harbor, but it was really cute. It is worth a visit for children or those young at heart.

My wife and I took our five year old granddaughter on the tug boat ride. The price was $66 CAD, which I thought was too high but who is going to say no to their grand child? The front of the boat is decorated like...More

My husband and I got to see Theodore travelling around the the harbour. It was neat to see something I've seen on tv before.

Theodore really is an adorable little Tugboat- isn't he?

Great photo ops along the mooring. If your child watches the TV show, you'll want to visit this attraction.

Who doesn't want to take a ride on Theordore Tugboat? My son absolutely loved this and we did too. I can't wait to take my daughter.

We travelled with a 4-year old and two older teenagers. Everyone loved the experience. It only lasts 30-min so no time to get bored. You get to see many of the harbour sites and even sit in the Captain's chair.

This excellent tour of the harbour is perfect for families. The boat is cute and the length of the tour is perfect for small children. The kids can sit in the captain's chair and the tour guide is very knowledgeable.

Family orientated. The speaker on the water ride was very informative of the harbour surroundings . We all enjoyed the 1/2 hour tour.
