Digby Harbour

Digby Harbour Wharf is in the town of Digby, situated on the western shore of the Annapolis Basin near the entrance to the Digby Gut, which connects the basin to the Bay of Fundy.  Digby was once called Oositookun, meaning ear of land by the Mi'kmaq.  There is a rich history to be discovered in the area and fishing on the wharf can offer a glipmse into Nova Scotia's fishing heritage.
