Bedford Basin is an enclosed bay that forms the northwestern end of Halifax Harbour, and it’s haunted by a phantom rowboat. The sound of someone rowing has been heard on foggy nights, although the boat is never seen. Legend has it the ghostly sound is all that’s left of a dory full of fishermen who perished when their boat capsized.
