Loved being able to walk in the caves at low tide. We seen all kinds of crabs and scallop shells. It was a pretty cool experience. Also got some awesome pictures of the covered bridges even though one is under construction and kind of ruined the picture I wanted.

After timing our visit to Fundy Trail, we arrived at the caves when there was low tide. I wished we had thought to stop at high tide as well, so as to see the contrast, but didn't. We meandered to the caves and were fortunate to see a piece of the ceiling fall before our eyes and not on our... More

A magnificent and unique natural phenomenon. This is a little out of the way, and the towns are very small, but it is well worth it. Around this area, always stop at a gas station when you can, they are few and far between. Went on June 20th 2014, not crowded at all.

The best time to walk to these caves is on a receding tide at 3/4. this gives you plenty of time to walk out to the point and explore. Hint: sneakers, kayak shoes or the like are best so you can rinse them out later. Step inside and take a picture of the blue sky using the cave as a... More

It's an interesting thing to check out, but not the biggest draw for the area. If you go to see the caves at low tide, take shoes you can get wet, as there is a permanent stream you have to either jump (only possible at one spot at lowest tide) or wade through. Also, don't expect to be exploring too... More

Got there at low tide and I must saw the cliffs and caves are very impressive. First part of the beach covered in rocks (and hundreds of periwinkles.) I walked straight out and around the cliff point. Had to cross a shallow stream, but I was fine in hiking boots. The rocks around the point were all covered with wrack/kelp... More

We came to St Martins because on Wikipedia, under the tourist section, it had mentioned the two bridges and lighthouse scene. We figured it might be worth a look. Passing that, we stumbled across the sea caves after high tides. We stopped and ate at the sea shack taking in the view. The locals told us that the tide was... More

The bay of Fundy is incredibly interesting with such high tides, the things that are exposed when the water recedes. The St Martins caves are fun to explore. You should time it to be there as the tide is receding. You need to be able-bodied and wear good footwear to be able to jump over the stones and walk into... More

The famous St. Martins sea caves are a favourite of mine! Located in beautiful, historic UNESCO world heritage site, the caves are a beautiful addition to the town, and are indicative of generations of rough Fundy waves crashing into the red rock. Multiple caves have been carved out. Give yourself lots of time to explore, and wear swim shoes if... More

The coach ride to St Martins Sea Caves is quite beautiful during the fall foliage. Unfortunately, we were probably a couple of weeks late for the best color. The coastline is roughed and great. We stopped at the bay for exploring the beach but first came the lunch at the Sea Caves Restaurant. It consisted of delicious roll w/butter, Seafood... More
