We are flying to Halifax & renting a cottage near Chester this August. We have several small day trips planned during the week(Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, back in to Halifax to explore).We would love to go whale watching, so we were thinking of flying to Halifax a couple of days early and driving right to Digby(maybe Wed night). Then we would have Thurs & Fri to try to get good weather for a whale wtching tour. We are worried about going all that way for a day (when the weather might be bad). It would mean 3 nights in Digby before we drive down for our Sat check in. Is there enough to do in Digby other than the tour? Also it seems that the tours book up ahead of time. What if we arrive on Thurs and they cancel the tour re: weather.....wouldn't the next day be already all booked up? How does that work? Do most people just pick a day months ahead & drive out there and take a chance?
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. First time in NS.
