Description

Located at the Annapolis River Causeway, experience the only salt water generating station in North America. 

Built as a response to the energy crisis of the '70s, the plant houses a turbine designed to work in the demanding environment of the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy. 

A Heritage Interpreter on site will guide you through the development of tidal power in the Bay and around the world. Conditions permitting, a tour of the plant may be offered to persons over age 16 with appropriate footwear. During this tour, get a one-of-a-kind view of the basin overlooking Granville Ferry and Annapolis Royal. Often osprey and other birds are sighted and even dolphins playing in the basin,

Visitor centre also on site.
