Nice site

Nice view of rocks and rock formations. However, be careful. Very slippery. Bring your water shoes. Also, tides move in fast, so be careful. Would be a beautiful spot to... read more

Nice view of rocks and rock formations. However, be careful. Very slippery. Bring your water shoes. Also, tides move in fast, so be careful. Would be a beautiful spot to visit with a kayak (we did not, but there was a spot to rent kayaks close by).

If you are in the St John NB area you have to go see the sea caves !!! Read up on it so you can fully understand what is happening . One of if not the most beautiful things I've ever seen .

This was a cool place to explore and check out the sea caves at low tide. You’re basically walking on sand, rocks and seaweed. There’s a restaurant on site. Also there’s a little shop that sells many used things across the street and has hundreds of used books for sale. We didn’t spend too much time here because there’s not... More

We checked the tide time before the day and thought that we would miss it, but we wanted to see it and took a chance. When we got there around 10 am, the tide had gone out so we were able to walk out to the cave. As we waited and played on the beach for a while, the tide... More

We stopped here on our family vacation and had people 8-69. We all really enjoyed exploring the caves and walking on the ocean floor. My mom has a bad leg so she decided to stay up by the parking lot but she enjoyed the view and watching the tide changing. The kids thought climbing on the rocks and in the... More

We visited this amazing place a couple of hours before low tide. You park in a restaurant parking lot and walk across the water smoothed stones over to the caves. There is a stream to cross over but people have built some stepping stones. It was very interesting to walk inside and see the way the water has sculpted them.... More

For those of you like me who don't quite care for sandy beaches but prefer the rugged, rocky coast this is a great spot. With it's high tides and rocky beaches you are treated to beautiful views and when the tide is out enough you can explore the small sea caves along the beach. While there's not much to do... More

Nice place to spend the afternoon. We enjoyed exploring when the tides were out, if you have little ones you may want to bring rubber boots and a change of clothing. Our little guy may have had too much fun in the red mud.

The caves were cool to see on my way back from the Fundy Parkway. I wouldn't consider it worth the drive if this was the only purpose of the trip though. A nice little 10min stop was fine

While the sea caves and walking the ocean floor are not as popular as the Hopewell rocks, I would highly recommend that you visit. It is free and self serve. In August, the low tide is conveniently in the morning around 9-10 am and you can walk thru the caves and the ocean floor, at your own pace. Not as... More
