A Glimpse of Fisherman’s Cove

Today, we’re setting sail to explore Fisherman’s Cove. This enchanting location holds a special place in my heart, and I’m thrilled to share it with you. Fisherman’s Cove, originally known as “the creek” or “the cove,” has a history that spans generations. Even today, families who have been fishing in this area for decades still call it home. But Fisherman’s Cove is more than just a historic fishing spot; it has transformed into a captivating tourist attraction. The area boasts charming shops, a delightful restaurant, and a Heritage Center that is a treasure trove of local history.

A Name with History

In 1996, “the creek” or “the cove” was officially rechristened Fisherman’s Cove. Despite the change in name, it remains a testament to the enduring fishing traditions of the area. It’s not uncommon to find generations of fishermen and their families continuing their time-honored trade in these waters. Fisherman’s Cove has also embraced the pleasures of boating, with a marina that caters to pleasure boats, adding to its charm.

Historical Trivia

As a lover of intriguing trivia, I can’t resist sharing this little-known fact. During the Civil War, the Confederate ship Tallahassee found itself in Halifax Harbor, while Union ships patrolled just beyond the entrance. It was a precarious situation. Local sea captain John “Jock” Fleming stepped in and guided the Tallahassee safely through the narrow southeast Passage, ensuring its escape from potential capture. What’s even more fascinating is that after the Civil War, the captain of the Tallahassee, John Taylor Woods, chose to make Halifax his home and became lifelong friends with the very man who had steered him to safety, John “Jock” Fleming.
