Why should I visit Nova Scotia?
Located in eastern Canada and almost completely surrounded by ocean, the province of Nova Scotia is shaped by the sea with a culture ranging from traditional to avant-garde, with Celtic roots, a colourful history and an exciting range of modern activities.
From tidal-bore rafting to whalewatching, with a cuisine full of seafood – and lobster, of course – and fabulous wines, beers and even whiskies.
On a fly-drive holiday of Nova Scotia, you can bike, hike, sail or paddle your way to spontaneous discovery
Frontier’s Personal Experience
Ensure you have scallops for dinner at least once whilst in Digby, Nova Scotia as it’s famous for them. You can actually eat them all over Nova Scotia but they are at their best here.Joanne Moores, Frontier Canada
Things to do in Nova Scotia
Experience nature at its fullest as you meet the world-famous tidal bore head on. Watch in awe as a small tranquil river reverses direction before your eyes and turns into a turbulent one. The wet and wild white water rafting adventure begins as you ride the tidal bore and the roller-coaster rapids over and over following the incoming tide back to where you started.
More than just a whale and seabird watching cruise, a Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruise is also part of a scientific survey studying an area teeming with marine life. During each cruise, the team of naturalists and researchers are involved in data collection and photographing of all species of whales and seabirds. All the information that is collected during is then compiled and made available to various research organizations around the world. As a result, the cruises yield important information on endangered and rare species of whales like the Humpback, Finback and Right Whales and others, as well as seabirds.
The Regular Cruise on the 50 ft. Mega Nova is equipped with an open viewing deck with seats, rails, bathroom facilities and shelter.
