Setting Sail on the Tall Ship Silva


Ahoy mateys! Madi and Nermeen here. This week, we had the opportunity to tour the Halifax Harbour on the Tall Ship Silva.


CTV Morning Live holds a contest each year where 25 lucky winners have the chance to set sail on the Silva with some of their favourite CTV hosts, including Katie Kelly, Heather Butts, and Ana Almeida. We were so excited to tag along and be a part of the special day! 


The hour and a half cruise took us around Georges Island, and was full of amazing entertainment. We started off by racing to help the deck hands put up the Silva’s huge mast. There is nothing like a friendly competition to get everybody on board excited. 


The competitions continued with some fun trivia and games. Do YOU know what the original name of CTV Morning Live was? For the guests on the Silva, if you were the first to answer, you won a cute CTV tote bag full of goodies including a baseball hat, and coffee mug. 


We can’t forget to give a shout out to the deck hands on the ship, who kept us full of great food and drinks. We were OBSESSED with their spring rolls!


Thank you to CTV Morning Live for an amazing afternoon on the harbour! Make sure you check out all of the cool contests that CTV and Virgin Radio have to offer for your chance to win a prize as amazing as this one. We can't wait to see you soon.
