    St Martins Sea Caves
    Nice area. If you go to Hopewell Rocks, this area is a smaller version. We were there at low tide. Spent a hour at the caves then we walked around the area. Some small souvenir shops. You can manage most areas with running shoes but if you wish to explore easier wear boots or waterproof shoes. There is a restroom at the visitor centre that looks like a lighthouse before getting to the caves.

    Interesting caves
    We visited St. Martins sea caves at low tide. Lots of free car parking available. It was quite busy when we visited. You walk out across the shingle to view the caves. Unfortunately they are cordoned off so you cannot go into the caves like you were able to in the past.

    A quick, fun and free stop! Just before the Fundy Trail, so the location is ideal.
    It's not as spectacular as Hopewell Rocks, but it is pretty awesome nonetheless and far less crowded! You don't need to wait until Low Tide, or you can visit an hour or tour after Low Tide, when the crowds are less. We went just after Low Tide and we shared the entire location with less than 20 people. Awesome experience.

    We went at low tide and walked around. It wasn't too crowded. The restaurant didn't look appealing so we passed on that. Went past the town to the next cute little town. The caves are something to see if you are in the area.

I really loved this excursion from the cruise ship. My only regret is that I wish this was the only activity, because 1-hour just isn't enough time. We came here during low tide that way we were able to walk all the way out to the mouth of the caves (the caves are closed/off limits due to visitors' abuse.) If you can, drive yourself so you can spend more time here and not rush. We did a best of St John excursion, so we didn't have time to get anything to eat or much time to explore the area. The caves are part of the greater Stonehammer Geoppark, which is very large and full of activities. Wear good/sturdy beach shoes/sandals because going over the rocks can make you twist your ankle.

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The sea cave trip was disappointing though. We paddled a very short distance and spent just a few moments with each kayak backed into a small cave. Not really worth the money except that having competent sea kayak instructors and appropriate boats was prudent on a windy day.

When I went at the end of May (just before the wildfires hit), it was extremely hot and the black flies were out by the millions. You couldn't get out of the car without getting eaten alive. So, I saw the sea caves from the parking lot for a few brief minutes. There were some people walking on the beach - they must have had a ton of bug spray on. From a distance, the caves looked nice and not something you see every day.

We visited St Martin specifically to see the Bay of Fundy, the caves, and the area. We camped near by and timed our arrival to be there at Low tide and stayed until High tide. When we arrived we walked from the far side of the bay, across the floor of the bay, into the caves. Very interesting, lots of sea life in the little pools, shells, weeds, everything you would expect on the floor of a bay. We then toured the area, stopping often and taking our time, slowly returning to where we started in St Martins. If you see both high and low tides you miss the significance of the Bay of Fundy and the tides associated with it. We had dinner at Caves Seafood marveling at how where we had walked was now deep underwater and the caves we had entered were nearly gone with the rising sea. Don’t miss it.

We arrived at St. Martins just when the tide was almost fully out to sea. The beach looked pebbled from a distance but the rocks are deceiving and much larger than they first appeared and we definitely needed our hiking boots. We had to traverse a few streams and were unable to access the caves as they were roped off due to an earlier incident of a large rock falling from the cliff. These geological formations and the colours were very impressive and hopefully one day, I can return and explore these stunning caves.

I thought I had researched a low tide time. But no, I was here early at high tide. I could have waited a few hours as two camping families decided to do, sitting on their lawn chairs having breakfast and wading into the water. There was so much else to do in this area, I decided not to. Be here at low tide and you get to explore the sea caves and this part of the Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark.

An incredible place! We walked into the sea caves during low tide in May. The red cliffs and trees formed a picturesque landscape of red and green. Be careful of the slippery mud , rocks , and kelp! Wear proper water shoes and hiking sticks to get the best out of this stop.

You need to time this experience with the tides. An hour before low tide my husband and I were able to walk across a creek a few inches deep and climb around the caves. Make sure you go past the part visible from the shore as it gets much more amazing! Then come back in several hours to witness how the exposed rock is swallowed up by the tide. We drove the Fundy Trail Parkway while we waited and saw some great scenery there as well.
