About
Wonderful opportunity to spend time at a beautiful place with an informed and knowledgeable local 5-star tour guide. Don’t miss visiting Lunenburg’s other picture-perfect must-see destination, the village of Blue Rocks! Blue Rocks is one of the most stunning fishing villages in all of Nova Scotia. It has been called ‘Little Peggy's Cove’ but without the crowds. Blue Rocks is calm, quaint, and simply gorgeous. A tiny off-the-beaten-path community with a ton of charm. This one-hour, out and back excursion starts from the beautiful Lunenburg waterfront and will take you directly to the nearby fishing village of Blue Rocks where you will be able to hop off the bus and take in the natural vistas, views, and ocean coastline while capturing beautiful photo opportunities and enjoying nature at it’s finest. Come along with a local on the bus as we take you to this scenic special place just down the seashore. We’ll do the driving …you do the sightseeing!

      Take a Seaweed Tour to explore Lunenburg and area
      Nancy runs a great tour in her little 8-seater bus. She is local, and full of stories. Very nice lady. We toured around Lunenburg, learning all about it, and then visited two small villages on the coast...had a chance to walk around and take some pictures. It was just lots of fun. Her bus is parked down by the main docks, by the Bluenose 2.

      A great way to see and learn about Lunenburg
      This was such a lovely tour with Nancy, the owner. She regaled us with historical and colourful stories while cruising around the charming town and we had a couple of scenic stops is small fishing settlements along the shore. The smallish bus sits 8 people comfortably and even has seatbelts! I’m so glad we went. Pick up the tour down at the main dock. Relax and enjoy.

      Great tour and wonderful driver/guide
      We joined the Tour at the Waterfront in Lunenburg. The tour guide was really friendly and also pretty funny. The tour itself was excellent and informative and went to areas we never would have seen otherwise. I would recommend this tour if you want to see parts of the town that you wouldn’t normally see and if you love the history of Lunenburg. 100% raining day recommended. Great experience!

      Awesome trip
      What a great trip around town and to the small fishing villages off the beaten path. Beautiful views and great stories. She knows everything about the fishermen and the firsthand stories are great.

      Enjoyable Experience
      Highly recommend this local tour. In addition to seeing many of Lunenburg's historic buildings, Nancy, the owner/ operator, provided insight into the fishing community around which the town was founded. The visits to rwo outlaying communities were a real treat.

      Wonderful narratives filled with nostalgia, local folklore and visits to surrounding fishing villages.
      Seaweed Tours, Inc. -- Nancy was a wonderful host/tour guide/storyteller. Her descriptions of early life in Lunenburg and the surrounding fishing villages was colorful, descriptive and sincere. You really got the feeling of how it was over 50 years ago and to see how the town has changed and evolved, but somehow still holds the magic of a fishing village. Nancy was able to paint a graphic verbal picture of her family's migration to Lunenburg from the bustling "metropolis" of Halifax. We visited several coastal fishing villages and also had a special stop at the local school which has been educating the local children for over 100 years. Nancy's narratives were sprinkled with wit, superstitions, tidbits of nostalgia and local folklore. The small tour bus was comfortable in the cool May weather and only allows for 8 tourists on each intimate storytelling journey.

      True Maritime Experience
      Lunenburg is full of the beautiful and quaint sights that one would associate with the Maritime Provinces. Great history, restaurants and sights. A very comfortable and unrushed experience.

      This is what a gem of a trip should be
      A tour should be both informative and entertaining. Gary has definitely mastered this art. Nancy has trained him well and he's able to relate details about the history and chatacters of Lunenburg as if he were a local. His friendly manner and sense of humour were exemplary. The biggest compliment I can give is that I'd repeat the tour tomorrow!

      A memorable tour
      Awesome local guide and tour! The guide has lived in Lunenburg since the 70s, so she has a lot of fascinating stories to tell. Also, she knows where to go for memorable views of Lunenburg and the nearby lovely fishing town by the sea!

      Excellent Lunenburg Tour Experience
      This tour was excellent. My husband and I were the only ones booked at that date/time, so we had a private tour! The stories about old Lunenburg were told from personal experiences and from the heart. The stops in Stonehurst and Blue Rocks were so pretty. Since it was only 2 hours, it was great because we had the remainder of the day to do other things. I highly recommend this tour; it is a one-of-a-kind experience.

      A great way to learn about the life of the early fisherman and Protestant settlers of Lunenburg.
      This small group bus tour with Nancy, is a great way to see the costal area outside of Lunenburg and most importantly, learn about the life (& hardships) of the early sailing folk. Nancy’s stories were entertaining & obviously heartfelt.

      A true gem of a tour
      This tour is definitely a gem. Nancy bases it around stories of her life in Lunenburg and of the fishing community. The stories are fascinating and bring Lunenburg to life in a really unique way. The stops she goes to are beautiful. A unique, fascinating and really enjoyable tour. Can’t recommend enough

      A beautiful town and entertaining tour
      We recently took a trip from the UK to New York, Boston and then the last week in the beautiful town of Lunenburg. My wife loves to explore a new town on the sightseeing tour bus and she was delighted that even in this small town we found the Hidden Gems (Seaweed Tours) tour bus in front of the harbour. On our tour around Lunenburg and the surrounding areas we had Gary as our driver and tour guide. Although he has only lived in Lunenburg for 2 years having relocated from Ottawa, Gary who we found out had moved to Canada from the UK 19 years ago was very knowledgeable and kept everyone on the bus entertained with his stories and what the British refer to as "Banter" with the people on the tour.  Gary kept us all entertained on the tour with his stories about the various points of interest and took us to a couple of 'Hidden Gems' from where we could take some wonderful scenic photos. It is obvious that Gary loves his life in Lunenburg and is a character within the community and well known by the locals. We only took the 1 hour tour but wish we had taken the 2 hour tour to have a bit more time at some of the points of interest and see some more of Lunenburg that wasn't possible to fit into 1 hour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend that any visitors to Lunenburg take an hour or two on the tour to see this beautiful town

    You don't know Lunenburg and area history until you take a tour with Nancy! She has loads of stories to share about the area, including why it is called Blue Rocks. You need to take the tour to find out the answer! Be prepared for a fun adventure even in the rain, Bluenosers are hardy folks. Lots to learn, see and take away from this adventure. Highly recommend for everyone!

    There are many options for tourists in this pretty little historic town on the south shore
    of Nova Scotia. On the advise of an employee of the Rum Runner Inn where we stayed, we booked this one hour tour. We are so very, very happy that we did. On this
    comfortable, well equipped bus, we were warmly greeted by the tour owner, Nancy. She is a longtime local with an amiable nature and a terrific sense of humor. Her knowledge of the Lunenburg area is impressively extensive and includes more than just facts and figures. Her stories of the history and past residents of Lunenburg is are as humorous as the are informative. This was probably the best hour of our memorable visit to Lunenburg.

    Off the beaten path, and by far a totally enjoyable time with Nancy. It was a small, funky bus and she provided yarns, tales and her experiences of living in Lunenburg, as well as, local history.
