At a Glance

Based in the seaside village of St. Martins on the Bay of Fundy, explore how two beautiful coastal areas of New Brunswick were settled by very different peoples — Acadians on the north shore and British Loyalists on the south. Witness the dramatic Bay of Fundy tides, walking with a naturalist on the ocean floor out to sea caves. Spend two nights in the French town of Bouctouche, where history comes alive with vibrant music, food, theater and dance. Return to the Bay of Fundy and St. Martins to learn how British Loyalists built more than 500 great wooden sailing ships and launched them worldwide.
