A great area for photographs. If you go at low tide you can get up close to the caves and if you don't mind your shoes getting a little wet you can explore even further.

We went there with our cruise ship tour bus, and had lunch at The Caves Restaurant. the caves were amazing! The tide was out so I was able to walk among the stones all the way to the caves. all I can say is WOW! Mother Nature at her best.

We visited the caves at lower tide first, which allows you to walk right into the cave. The cave is not deep I should warn you, but this is a good way to see the tides at work. At low tide, you can walk out a long ways, say 100 yards more than at high tide. At high tide, you... More

It's a good idea to check the schedules of the tides in order to have the chance to go inside the caves in low tide. After being inside the caves with low tide we took the Fundy Trail and saw many more things then we came back to the caves with high tide. We liked to see the caves in... More

These were vary interesting to view at both high and low tide as the impact is quite dramatic. At low tide you can access the caves and spectacular cliffs/rocks beyond them, but watch your step as the area to get there has quite rocky, slippery or muddy portions that can also be slippery. To get into the cave or onto... More

Be it high tide, or low, or both, this is a really great adventure. It is not common to be able to access sea caves when tides recede. If you are lucky enough to visit st. Martins you should visit the caves and try to time your trip to low tide

On the Bay of Fundy where a unique set of conditions allow the tides to rise and drop sometimes 40 feet per day. The before and after shots that you can get if you spend the 6 hours here will blow away any other pictures you take of any other attractions in the province. I would recommend that you go... More

We went out of our way to spend couple of hours at the sea caves and it was definitely worth it. It's free with plenty of parking space and no human intervention. We were there during the low tide and I guess that's the best time to easily explore the whole area; I imagine the sea caves look wonderful during... More
