Book this journey
Digby is a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada, dating back to the second half of the 18th century. It has long maritime traditions, with many trade and fishing ships calling it home. Nowadays Digby is proud of its scallop fishing, it even holds an annual scallop festival! You can learn about the town's history in the Admiral Digby Museum. If you're more of an outdoorsy person visit the 200-years-old Prim Point Lighthouse or go hiking on the Balancing Rock trail.
Saint John is the only city on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada, situated at the mouth of Sain John river. It is a perfect starting point for many trips to admire the Canadian nature: the Irving Nature Park, Rockwood Park or the Reversing Falls, to name a few. You can also visit the Carleton Martello Tower or the New Brunswick Museum to learn more about the area. Finally take a walk at an indoor city market where you can taste local specialities and buy some handcrafted souvenirs.

"The nicest moment WAS ARRIVING TO CADIZ, WHEN WE SAT ON THE MAST WITH THE ENTIRE TEAM, WEARING OUR TEAM SHIRTS AND SINGING LOUDLY TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WE'RE COMING."
"IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
"Setting sails: always fantastic."
