“Bay of Fundy and Reversing Falls”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Lovely small city that boasts incredible variations in tide (up to 50' during a full moon). The Bay itself is very large, sparsely populated and absolutely gorgeous. Took a tour to see the caves, very scenic drive.

“Quaint and Delightful”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I arrived at the Bay of Fundy by way of a cruise tour. We sailed on the Carnival Glory from Boston to St. John's and hopped on a tour bus to the Bay of Fundy. Our tour guide was dressed in traditional hand made dress and was well informed on the history of St. John's, St. Martin, and New Brunswick in Canada. She held our interest while on the bus even telling us stories about Moose along the way. We made two stops. Our last was at the Bay of Fundy during low tide. Here I walked on the ocean floor, collected "wishing stones", and took pictures of the caves. Before leaving I purchased the most amazing cup of New England clam chowder at The Caves Restaurant accompanied by a delicious biscuit. Take note, if walking to the caves, you will want water shoes or consider taking off your shoes. Although the tide is out there are streams of water that are too wide to jump over.

“Alma, New Brunswick”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

All the world knows that the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides on the planet, where,at low tide, you can walk on the ocean floor , and at high tide, kayak among the Flower Pot Islands in the Fundy Trail Parkway. However, if you drive a few more miles west, you get to witness the effects of these tides on the pictuesque fishing village of Alma, New Brunswick. Park anywhere on the main street, grab your camera and go for a stroll, buy a lobster, kiss a moose, line up to purchase "the best sticky buns in the world",and view the fishing boats sitting on the ocean floor. Come back at high tide and see where you have to climb up to get into these same boats which, hours earlier, were sitting on the dry ocean bed. Photograph the rugged surrounding landscape from any of the public docks in town.
Some quick facts: the province of New Brunswick, Canada, has more covered bridges than anywhere else in the world; Bay of Fundy Lobster is the best and sweetest in the world, because they come from the coldest water, and they are all over 1 pound in weight, (anything smaller is thrown back in to breed and grow larger)

“Wish I had more time to enjoy”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We only had a few hours to enjoy St. Martins and the Bay of Fundy Drive - which wasn't enough time. Be sure to see the low tide in the morning and the high tide later in the day. (we didn't get to see the tide at it's highest but in a few hours it climbed pretty quickly).

When doing the Bay of Fundy Drive, go all the way to the end at stop 11 and slowly head back. Be sure to stop at points 11, cross the footbridge on stop 7/8, and see the falls on stop 4.

“Highest tides in the world”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I've seen it several times and I never grow weary of the wonderful views. St. Martin's offers a view of the tides, the caves and access to the Fundy Trail Parkway. YOu must visit St.Martin's New Brunswick with its two covered bridges, and quaint fishing village.
