At a Glance

In a land of rocky cliffs, idyllic coves, peninsulas and scattered hamlets where seagulls outnumber the locals, tap into your inner oceanographer with your grandchild during a special educational adventure. Experience the Bay of Fundy tides — highest on the planet at 50 feet — and at low tide discover sea caves and animals hiding under seaweed, rocks and in the mud. Stay three nights at a marine research center, venturing out by boat to watch and learn about whales and other wildlife in this unique ecosystem. The tides change twice a day, and after your week of making awesome marine discoveries with your grandchild, you’ll leave changed, too.
