It was a beautiful drive to get there and then the caves were just spectacular. It is amazing to watch Mother Nature in her true spirit. The restaurant there was yummy too !

Worth the drive from St John, interesting couple hours. We were there at 3-5pm tide was out, lots of caves and great sightlines out into the water.

If you want to get the full experience of caves, you need to time it for low tide or won't be able to get right over to them. Lovely beach and great restaurant for fish And chips although not licensed so don't plan on enjoying a beer or glass of wine with your fish and chips. Great views from restaurant.

The tides at the Bay of Fundy are truly unique. The caves at St. Martin have been carved by the large tides. At low tide you can explore inside them and also view the sea life that the outgoing tide leaves behind.

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 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
