Digby and its trademark scallop and lobster fishing fleet sits by the shores of the Annapolis Basin, near the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. The town commands the largest fleet of scallop boats on the planet, with almost every restaurant in town serving the day’s fresh catch. A seafood haven aside, this seaside town also serves as an excellent base for travelers exploring the Annapolis Valley and nearby Digby Neck. A replica of the house of the famous Canadian folk artist, Maud Lewis, is a popular attraction for visitors, as is strolling down the lovely waterfront and catching a ferry ride across the Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy is also rich with marine animals such as finback and minke whales, harbor porpoises, Atlantic dolphins, seals and seabirds. Whale watching, angling, boating and sailing, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, and marine cruises are popular tourist activities here.
