Welcome to Queen's Marque 12

The Light Chocks

Tidal Beacon

Ascending 40 feet above Rise Again and overlooking the Halifax waterfront, Tidal Beacon by Ned Kahn is a dramatic, interactive light display.

Art Piece Spotlight

This towering art piece responds to the tides and weather, transforming itself with light, sound and motion.

As the tides change, light rises and shifts within the structure, culminating at high tide with a beaming beacon of light that shines into the sky and out over the harbour.

Tidal Beacon is fully accessible, with a lift inside for any visitors with limited mobility.
