Trip Details

We will meet along the waterfront next to the Town of Digby Visitor Information Centre, 110 Montague Row. After a brief orientation, you will follow in your vehicle to our rocky shore adventure. The best trips take place when the tide is lowest, so it is important to book in advance.

How to prepare for the adventure:

There will be climbing over rocks to get to the best spots

Wear sturdy footwear

A windbreaker or hooded sweatshirt is a good idea as it gets cool at the shore

Sunscreen, water, camera and binoculars can round out your "rocky shore kit"
