Hubbards Shrimp Cannery Beach Dive Site

Hubbards, Nova Scotia
Certification Level:  Novice


This is a small beach area and can be fairly busy during the summer months for locals.  This dive site/beach is adjacent to an old shrimp cannery long since closed. The local community keeps the few steps down to the beach, and the roadside widened.

The beach is sandy , changing over to gravel and eventually silty/mud. Off to the right, around the wharf and on the flanks of the little point with the old cannery is nice boulders with richer marine life.



There is parking along the side of the road.


none on site

Site Entry/Exit

Very easy entry into the water, just a few steps down to the water

Points of interest/natural navigation aids:

lobsters and lots of marine life (moon snails, pollock, sea ravens, sculpins, cunner, flounder), sand/mud bottom

Bottom Composition & Depth:

Depth ranges from 15ft/5m to 48ft/14m


Visibility varies based on many influences including the weather - rain runoff, wind and waves - the tides and the time of the day.  Improved visibility may be experienced during slack high tide.  Visibility of 30ft to 40ft/9m to 12m is not uncommon for this site.

Hazards and Safety:
In the winter be careful of the steps down to the beach, in warmer months be careful of boat traffic
