Parrsboro's waterfront has entertained many marine piers over several centuries and has surpassed Halifax in shipping tonnage at one point in time. The current marine facility, concrete boat launch and surrounding land is operated by the Parrsboro and Area Harbour Commission, a non-profit organization directed by volunteers. Due to the world's highest tides, the current pier is accessible by marine craft for approximately 4-5 hours of every tidal cycle. A home to several fishing boats and pleasure craft, the pier is available for both seasonal and daily rental use. For information please call Croyden Wood (902) 254-2513.
