The majestic Tall Ships are returning to Pier 8 - following their hugely successful visit back in the summer of 2013. The Tall Ships Parade of Sail is a must-see spectacle as the 11 vessels navigate around the Harbour in single file formation before docking at Pier 8.

Prominent vantage points to watch the parade include Pier 8, Bayfront & Pier 4 Parks, York Boulevard Bridge, Burlington Canal and Fisherman’s Pier, Eastport Drive, and LaSalle and Bayshore Parks in Burlington. You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to witness the spectacle of 11 Tall Ships gracing Hamilton’s beautiful Waterfront.

In addition to free deck tours and harbour cruises, visitors will enjoy family-friendly and nautical-themed activities, music on the Waterfront Stage featuring great musicians from Hamilton’s thriving music scene, and a plethora of food vendors. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Avro Lancaster will conduct multiple fly-overs of the Waterfront on July 1 between the hours of 11am and 2:30 pm.

Sweet vantage point ! I did try to get the hundred or so people on the pier to sit so I could snap a photo of the ships going down the canal but nobody would listen, go figure ! Great shots and yes I pulled out the camera for this.
