Come walk down the fisherman's wharf and talk to the fishermen, or just watch them hard at work. Enjoy the beautiful scenery from the boardwalk, be amazed by the highest tides in the world (Digby is located right at the Bay of Fundy!), or just enjoy a scallop dinner while looking out over the bay.

Daytrip possibilities:
1. Visit Annapolis Royal, the oldest permanent European settlement in Canada. Only 35km from Digby and reachable by local Kings Transit, this is an amazing little village that is sure to captivate you with its charm and history.
2. Witness some of the best whale watching in North America. The Digby Neck and islands offer you the opportunity to enjoy some of the best whale watching around. The Bay of Fundy, with its' high tides, creates the perfect feeding ground for many species of whales. It is truly breath taking.
3. Visit Bear River. A small artist community located in a wooded valley on a tidal river. Houses on stilts, some of the best artists in Nova Scotia and one of the best and most interesting art galleries in Nova Scotia. You also have a chance to learn something about the native people at the Bear River Heritage museum.
