In the late 1930s, 27 newly designed Tribal Class destroyers were built for use in the navies of Canada, Australia and Great Britain. Interested in seeing one of these historic ships for yourself? Thirteen of the ships sunk during World War Two, and thirteen were scrapped after the war and today there’s only one left in the world, and it sits proudly in the Hamilton harbour.

Why not climb aboard for a tour of this Canadian icon and explore the ship for yourself?

Wondering if this is an experience that young children would enjoy? Toronto Teacher Mom blogger, Diana Mancuso gave her trip to HMCS Haida with her young daughter a thumbs up. Read about their experience.

HMCS Haida’s captivating history has been captured in song.
