Down by the Bay
Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia
Our day together we experience part of the Annapolis Valley region, where we will explore the coast of the world-famous Bay of Fundy. Here we have the chance to see the world’s highest tides, flocks of seabirds and rugged sea cliffs. From towering volcanic sea cliffs near black in color to the red sandstone seabed of the Minas Basin, the sea here not only provides incredible scenery but creates a diverse marine ecosystem that is home to an abundance of sea-life which provides a lucrative living for many families along its coast. If the tides play in our favor we will have the chance to walk on the ocean floor in search of precious rocks, seashells and lost pirate treasure.
Back on land, the farming community here is alive and well! At the Farmers Market, we mingle with locals selling their goods in the form of precious hand made delicacies, locally produced wines, art, and fresh produce. Various local musicians frequent the market to entertain and set the scene for a welcoming community supported venue. We end the day with a visit to the Luckett Vineyards for a taste of some of Nova Scotia’s finest wines and one breathtaking view overlooking the Gaspereau Valley and the Bay of Fundy on the horizon.
What others have to say:
Personalized service, knowledge and friendly – “On our only day in Halifax we went to the Annapolis Valley, had a delicious picnic lunch, saw the Bay of Fundy and the tidal variation, the Gaspereau Winery and learned so much history about the area. We even stopped at a Fire Station on request! It was really a special day.”
