Views around Nova Scotia

by tvor

"Annapolis Royal"

Annapolis Royal is situated on the Annapolis River, an inlet from the Bay of Fundy. It is one of the oldest settlements in North America, founded in 1605. This view looks across the river to Granville Ferry, which is close to the reproduction of Port Royal, a french fortification founded by Sieur de Mont and Samuel de Champlain. There are many historic buildings in Annapolis Royal and lots of large Victorian houses converted to Bed and Breakfasts. It's a nice base to explore the area at the far end of the Annapolis Valley

"Annapolis Valley: Grand Pre"

Grand Pre is just outside the pretty university town of Wolfville in the Annapolis Valley. This part of the area is flat and marshy, on the edge of an inlet of the Bay of Fundy. Grand Pre is a historic park, built to commemorate the French Acadian culture and history in the area. Nova Scotia was founded by the French initially and was called "Acadie". In 1755 the French colonists were deported by the English and the episode was made famous in a poem by Longfellow featuring Evangeline as the sad lover waiting all her life for her husband to return. The statue is in front of the memorial church. You are supposed to be able to see Evangeline's face age as you walk around it but i've never managed to see it myself.

"Mahone Bay"

Mahone Bay is a picturesque town on Nova Scotia's south shore. The area, as most coastal areas of Nova Scotia, has a seafaring heritage. Now there are arts and crafts, galleries and shops and picturesque views.

"The Bluenose"

In the 1920's and 30's, the Bluenose schooner, built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, was a fishing schooner but was also an undefeated racing boat. She was eventually retired and sold for a cargo carrier and sunk off a reef in the mid 1940's. In the early 60's, a brewery company comissioned a replica to sell their "schooner" beer and the Bluenose II has become a tourist ambassador and symbol for Nova Scotia.

"Digby"

Digby is a fishing town on the Annapolis Basin on the Bay of Fundy north shore of the province. Nearby is a car ferry to New Brunswick. There is a large resort by the ferry, Digby Pines. The town is pretty, along the waterfront, with a few little galleries, old cemeteries, shops and a museum or two to explore.

"Lunenburg"

Lunenburg is on the south shore of the province and has a long standing ship building and fishery heritage. The red building in the picture is now a fisheries museum. The town is a World Heritage site and it's streets are lined with beautiful, colourful Victorian houses. The streets downtown are steep as the hills lead down into the harbourfront area. Lots of craft shops, great restaurants featuring seafood.

Travel Tips for Digby

Worth a visit for a few days.

by Tricky_Dicky69

"Downtown Digby."

Digby is fairly small and best known for the Digby scallop fleet. The town is usually fairly quiet when we have been there but has a relaxed feel to the place which we like. We have been to Nova Scotia twice and have stayed near Digby both times. The town has quite a lot of B & B's etc and enough bars and restaurants to give enough choice for most tastes, although there is nothing too flash here.

"Location, location, location."

Digby is a great place for visiting numerous attractions while staying at a central base. It's just a drive away from Annaplois Royal and the Minas Basin, convenient for Digby neck with the balancing rock, numerous hiking trails, Briar Island and some of the best whale watching that N.S. has to offer.
Kejimkujik National Park is about 45 minutes away which is not to be missed if you enjoy either wildlife, stunning scenery, cycling, hiking swimming, canoeing or kayaking.

Whale-watching in Digby

by King_Golo

A great thing to do near Digby, a small town in Northwest Nova Scotia, is to go whale-watching. I had heard so many interesting stories about whales in this area and people who had actually seen them in a distance of like 5m so that I decided even before I entered Canadian territory that I will go for a whale-watching cruise some time during my trip. Digby was my place of choice. On a cloudy day I drove to the Digby Neck, a long peninsula where conditions for whale-watching are said to be perfect. Whales very much enjoy the enormously high tides in the Bay of Fundy because they whirl up the krill, the favourite food of whales. Well, it looks like conditions are indeed perfect - our group saw 7 whales, humpbacks and finbacks.
Apart from whale-watching, Digby offers quite some things to do despite its small town character. Check out my tips for more.

Digby - Bay of Fundy Scallop Capital

by CdnJane

"Downtown on one of the building walls"

There was a lovely little area where you could sit, on the main street. On the two walls there were these lovely inlaid pictures.

"Some of the harbour"

"Digby is famous for its Scallops"

Some of the best (if not THE best) scallops in the world come from the Digby area. In the harbour, along the road to the Ferry docks, I saw a number of "rafts", and a boat along side, obviously taking in some of the load.

The Best Whale Watching

by SassyCycler

"Whale Watching"

One of the greatest life experiences was my whale watching trip. I went out with the Ocean Explorations outfit. There were 12 of us on the Zodiac, which is a hard bottom inflatable. This is a high end very stable inflatable with a center console and two large outboard motors. Tom, the owner and guide is very knowledge about whales. You are required to wear a jumpsuit that keeps you warm out on the waters of the Bay of Fundy and has mild floatation qualities. Within five minutes of entering the bay we saw a whale! (I spotted it!) All total we saw 8 humpback whales and countless Minke whales. Also many puffin and seals.

Another highlight was the shark right near us that was attacking dinner. We never did figure out what it was it was consuming.

You have to take a 5-minute ferry with your car that costs $4 CAD (R/T and payable upon crossing over) out to Long Island (not to be mistaken for Long Island, NY!). The Ocean Explorations outfit is right there when you arrive...bear left and it's on the right...about 100 yards. Park across the road in the public parking spaces.

Whale watching package was a fair price and better than on the USA side.

www.oceanexplorations.ca/

"Ferry Crossing Over"

The ferry runs every half hour on the hour and half-hour. It will run more frequently and off schedule if there's a lot of people. The day we were there it seemed to be running every 20-minutes. Line up on the right shoulder in the line to board your car. When they are finished deboarding, drive your car down and on to the ferry. Workers will guide you and tell you how to park. $4 CAD Round trip and payable on the first crossover. No money taken on the return.

"Lighthouse"

After whale watching take a quick drive up to the lighthouse.

Or you can try and get something at the lunch shack while waiting for the ferry. It's not healthy food, so if you want something more healthy bring a bagged snack.
