Took the kids to see the Haida and they thought it was really great. We met an old WWII veteran that was on one of the other ships. He said this ship brought back a lot of memories.

Self guided tour, HMCS Haida offers a insight into wartime vessels, located in the Hamilton West Marina close to Bayfront Park. Entertaining for all ages, could be combined with a cruise on the Hamilton Harbour Queen,

My fiancé and I went to this place since we got our free "Parks Canada Pass." We tried the self guided tour and it took us 1.5 hours. It was really awesome and I recommend to bring your friends and family!

The history of this ship is amazing and all will thoroughly enjoy the time spent (young and old). The staff onboard are for the most part experienced seamen with personal service on this and its "sister" ship. You will leave very well informed!

Yes, there is a small parking area close to the ship, and outside the fences. It gets pretty busy, though.
