Scallops are Digby’s claim to fame.
The town is also a first port of call for visitors arriving from New Brunswick on the Saint John to Digby ferry.
Lunch in Digby is a great idea. The Royal Fundy Fish Market, on Fisherman’s Wharf does take-away lunches.
Walk along the waterfront afterwards to see the scallop fleet and visit the tourist information office.
History buffs might also visit the Admiral Museum, set in a Georgian-style home from the 1800s.
The only time crowds really descend on Digby is during the Scallop Days festival, held during the first week of August. There’s a parade, markets and a scallop shucking contest. The festival website has more information.
