We will be heading from Halifax to Maitland for Tidal Bore rafting in September. I would really like to see Joggins Cliffs, but I'm not sure it will be worth the drive. We are staying in downtown Halifax and would drive from there to the Cliffs and then back to Maitland.
Google maps shows about 2.5 hrs from Halifax to Joggins and close to 2 hrs from Joggins back to Maitland, but I've read the times are usually a little off from reality. We will not be going on a weekend, so only the 30 min tour is available.
The tide tables show high tide in the early afternoon with low tide 6.5 hrs later. We don't want to arrive back in Maitland really late, so I'm wondering how late we would have to wait for a decent tour with good visibility of the fossils.
Thanks for the help!
