BALEINE was an ocean going tug which was converted to a minesweeper under charter to the Canadian Government. She was manned by a civilian crew. BALEINE was sweeping the approaches to Halifax Harbour when the Halifax Explosion occurred. The explosion was felt by her crew, but the ship was undamaged.
