About Tom Goodwin
Tom runs Ocean explorations (.ca) zodiac whale-watching in Tiverton, just across the ferry. If going in a fast open boat isn't your thing, there are other whale-watching (fishing - tour boats) companies in the area too.
Tom Goodwin purchased this House in 2012
Why Tom Goodwin chose Digby County
It was a very nice house, at a good price, resulting from a divorce. The land of this property actually wraps around our home property down around the corner (NOT either neighbouring houses)
What makes this House unique
It is a very nice modern house and we have furnished it with fairly nice things.
Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
wonderful accomodating property
Great ammenities, sketchy tv service and no wifi
But we knew that and enjoyed our stay as a whale watching was on our agenda!
Local grocery stores are limited, but fun and eclectic, so if you are staying for awhile stock up in Digby.
Owners were very gracious, and accomodating.
We had a great time..thank you Tom & Penny
