the only place on earth where the tides and the water change so many times that the water comes up and goes down 40 feet at a time. it was amazing to see this and view it at two different times on the tour. make sure you see this!

we went when the tide was just coming in after a tour of the surrounding area. We saw where the two tides meet and form whirlpools both large and small. We also saw seals as they came in with the tide fr4om the sea to feed on the fish that also came in. Fascinating to see the change in height... More

Finally, after all those geography classes in high school with Ms. Mackenzie-Gray, I'm here! My first Bay of Fundy impression was an advertisement of two people in orange kayaks. Since that day, I wanted to make the trek over and kayak at low tide through the lovely natural landmarks. The drive was long due to the downpour and my cell... More

This was by far one of the most visually stunning places I've ever been, period....we drove from Halifax towards Maitland and down a long farm strewn road to Burntcoat Park overlooking Cobequid Bay on the Nova Scotia side of the Bay of Fundy. This park was very unassuming, with a modest lighthouse, specimen trees and signage pointing you to the... More

This is a wonder to behold ... Check the tides before you go , to get the most out of your trip . I don't think pictures or descriptions do this justice ... You have to see it . Plan a couple of hours to explore ... More time would be better .

The entire area is ruled by the tide tables as the vast tidal volume moves thru the bay twice a day. The sight of boats high and dry at low tide is iconic.

You must witness this place when the tides are at their extremes! During low tide, you can walk on the ocean bottom. This was truly a once in a life time experience. I recommend seeing both low time and high tide. The people in the area are friendly and the food is great; mostly seafood, lobster being the big draw.... More

Spent a couple of hours walking the ocean floor at low tide, accessing the area from Burntcoat Park on the Nova Scotia side. Would have loved to stay the day and watch the tide come in but if one had to choose, low tide experience was the best.

We took a family trip in June and our first stop was the Bay of Fundy and the National Park. What a beautiful spot! The people are helpful and friendly and the local food was great! Always go with the local items! We had a great time, even in the rain. The mist mixed with the craggy coast line and... More

We visited Hopewell Rocks, Bay of Fundy this morning. It was certainly worth the visit. It was amazing to walk on the ocean floor and look up at all the rocks knowing that in three or four hours the tide will rise 45 feet. The walk to the rocks is very peaceful, and mostly gently downhill. If you suffer from... More
