HMCS Sackville is berthed in the Naval Dockyard from November to mid-June each year. She is moved from the Dockyard to Sackville Landing, near the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, from late June to late October each year.
HMCS Sackville is currently undergoing an extensive refit in the Naval Dockyard, and will not be open to the public until June 2021. A more definitive date will be promulgated when known.
HMCS SACKVILLE is alongside her Sackville Landing berth on the Halifax waterfront where visitors will be greeted by Guides positioned on the jetty and upper decks to “tell the story” of her exploits throughout WWII. Guides will be equipped with electronic systems to ensure those viewing from ashore are capable of hearing all that they tell. Although the ship is back in business for another season, it will not be business as usual due to COVID-19, which unfortunately precludes opening the ship to visitors for daily tours.
Visitors to HMCS Sackville can purchase tickets in our gift shop at the bottom of the gangway or at our partner location, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Picture of Gift Shop here.
HMCS Sackville is made up of a multi-level platform connected by ladders. Visitors with mobility issues may find exploring the ship challenging. If you need assistance coming onboard or climbing ladders, we’d be pleased to help.
The nearest public restroom to HMCS Sackville is located nearby in the Nova Scotia Tourism building. Other restrooms are located in the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
