Annapolis Marsh Tours

Participants have an opportunity to discover the natural beauty of the Annapolis Basin on a 2 hour, 3.5 kilometre guided interpretive tour of Annapolis Royal. The tour begins with a stroll along the Boardwalk on the edge of the Annapolis Basin, the home of some of the highest tides in the world with a discussion on the plants and animals that make their home here. The view from lower St. George Street also includes the North Mountain range, a volcanic ridge that traces its history to the Triassic period. Then on to the Annapolis Marsh where tours are led by local naturalists, who are eager to share their knowledge about the birds, plants, and other wildlife that inhabit this area. The Annapolis Marsh is a dynamic ecosystem, hosting a wide variety of migratory birds that can be found nesting and rearing their young during the spring and summer, as well as resident species that can be seen throughout the year.

Tours are presented every Tuesday and Thursday from June to September beginning at 9a.m.
The cost is $10 per adult, $5 for kids.

To reserve a tour, contact the CARP office at (902) 532-7533, email: carp@annapolisriver.ca or drop into the office at 314 St. George Street, Annapolis Royal.
