View of Annapolis Basin from Fort Anne, at Annapolis Royal

The Annapolis Basin is a sub-basin of the Bay of Fundy, located on the southeastern shores of the bay, along the northwestern shore of Nova Scotia and at the western end of the Annapolis Valley.

The basin takes its name from the Annapolis River, which drains into its eastern end at the town of Annapolis Royal. The basin measures approximately 24 kilometres (15 mi) northeast-southwest and 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) at its widest from northwest to southeast.

It is a sheltered and mostly shallow water body, framed by the ridges of the North Mountain and South Mountain ranges of the Annapolis Valley; the basin is geologically a continuation of the valley floor. A break in the North Mountain range at the northwestern edge of the basin, called Digby Gut, provides an outlet to the Bay of Fundy.

The Bay Ferries Limited ferry service operating across the Bay of Fundy between Digby and Saint John maintains a terminal on the western shore of the basin near the Digby Gut.

Rivers[edit]

Rivers which drain into the basin include:

Islands[edit]

Two major islands are located in the basin:

  • Bear Island
  • Goat Island

Communities[edit]

The basin hosts several historic seaports, including:

A former Royal Canadian Navy base and decommissioned Canadian Forces Base is located between Deep Brook and Clementsport on the southeast shore of the basin - see CFB Cornwallis.

Coordinates: 44°39′N 65°42′W / 44.650°N 65.700°W / 44.650; -65.700
