On the Fundy Shores
There are kilometres of coastline along the Fundy Shore, by way of Digby Neck and Islands, providing some of the best whale watching tours around. Artists and crafts people are abundant throughout quaint villages that reflect a time gone by. The Town of Digby is known for its world famous Digby Scallops, an eating experience that is a must while staying in the area. Like the Bay of Fundy itself, it is “phenomenal”.
- Named after Admiral Robert Digby, the town is famous for its scallop fishing fleet and the MV Fundy Rose ferry service connecting to Saint John, New Brunswick.
- Digby is called Weskewinaq by the Mi’kmaq meaning “a cheerful place.”¹
- We have a song about us! “Welcome to Digby Town” by Lynn Nicholson, Published in 1971 by London Records of Canada. CLICK HERE to listen to it.
- One famous Digby vessel was the brigantine Dei Gratia, which discovered the famous mystery ship Mary Celeste in 1872.
