History

Formed by the last Ice Age as it retreated Bedford Basin is surrounded by the most populated area in Eastern Canada.

The Basin is about 5 kilometres wide and 8 kilometres long quite deep in places.

It forms the northwest end of Halifax harbour. It was named after John Russell, the 4th Duke of Bedford.

 

Paranormal Activity

A boat full of fisherman flipped over in the Basin resulting in all the men drowning. On foggy nights – like the one the men drowned in – the phantom sound of oars and a boat sliding through the water can be heard. But no boat ever appears.

The Basin is also said to be haunted by members of the original Aboriginal population, French and Canadian soldiers – probably from the Halifax explosion in The Narrows – as well as numerous other victims it has claimed over the centuries.

Reported Activity: shadowy apparitions; disembodied voices; numerous types of unexplained noises; light anomalies; touches, tugs and pulls of unseen presences and feelings of not being alone, not being wanted and being watched.
