Digby, Nova Scotia


 Nova Scotia / 93 views

Digby In 1783 Digby was settled by a hearty band of United Empire Loyalists led by Rear Admiral, Sir Robert Digby, Captain of the HMS Atalanta, a 24 gun Brigantine, leading the North American Squadron.

In appreciation of Adm. Digby’s leadership and guidance our early settlers from New York and New England named their new town in honour of their benefactor.
The Town of Digby has been an active fishing and lumber producing community throughout the years. Famous for the delicious scallops harvested from our local waters, spectacular vistas of The Annapolis Basin from our waterfront, clear crisp air, and of course the incredible tides (28 to 35 ft.) in our harbour, we offer our visitors a wonderful opportunity to visit or to settle in for a relaxed way of life.

Located near Rt. 101, a major highway, close to Digby Annapolis Regional Airport (the highest Airport in N.S.!), and the only year round ferry service to Nova Scotia, Digby offers entrepreneurial visitors a great place to start a business, or to grow an existing venture, in our Industrial Park.
