At a Glance

Set out on a journey around the Bay of Fundy to discover the unique phenomena created by the world’s highest tides, from tidal bores and reversing rapids to sea stacks and caves. Start in the small fishing village of St. Martins, where you walk the ocean floor to explore sea caves carved by the tides into massive sandstone cliffs. Move up the coast to the iconic Hopewell Rocks and onto Nova Scotia shores to discover a tidal bore, fossil beds and a rich blend of Mi'kmaw, English and French cultures. Ferry back across the bay to the historic port city of Saint John to complete your journey, reflecting on the friendly locals you’ll have met in each welcoming community where life is governed by the sweep and rhythm of the tides.
