Their dock sits right on the harbor and the views are incredible. We were made to feel more like family than tourists.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Halifax and SeaWatch was perfect. The room was comfortable with a great view and deck right across from the water. The view was outstanding with all the windows and even skylights just made it feel huge. Separate entrance made it very convenient and I didn't have to feel like I was bothering the host.... More
