Good service. Nice thing to do in the afternoon, not far from Moncton. Good tour available, we happened to come across the tour guide while the tide was low and enjoyed some of the tour free.

We highly recommend a visit to Hopewell Rocks. You will be amazed to be walking on the ocean floor and just a few hours later see fifty foot high water where you just walked.

We came here for Canada Day and had such a great time. We started our day at Hopewell rocks, which was cool to see in low tide. It is neat to walk on the ocean floor and explore all the nooks and crevasses!! We spent the time between low and high tide at Cape Enrage and hiking at Fundy National Park, on the Dickson Trail. Then it was back to Hopewell Rocks to see it high tide..... So amazing to see how high the tide comes!! A great itinerary to see the Fundy coast in a day!! Hopewell rocks is a definite must see!

Hopewell rocks is about a forty minute drive from Moncton but worth the trip. It can be a bit tricky figuring out when to go as you really want to be there when the tide is low. Basically they are open three and a half ours before and after low tide. We were there for about two hour before low tide and we had access to everything.

After you pay the entrance fee there is a building with food, gift shop and a good information display on the rocks themselves. Once you start you walk down there are a half dozen side paths that look down from above. Stop at these as they give you a good perspective once you are below. The path down is wide and smooth.

Once you are at the bottom the view is fantastic. Waterproof hiking shoes seemed to work best bit many people wore sandals of some sort. The mud near the water is deep so you will most likely be walking on gravel. The rock formations are amazing. Some of the cooler looking paths are roped off due to rock slides but there are still plenty of archways and narrow areas to explore. It took us about an hour and a half at a slow pace. It we also climbed over rocks at the end of the path to get to the beach on the other side and take an alternative path back up. Climbing back to the top is a bit steep but very doable.

I absolutely loved this place! There is a small hike to get to the rocks, but a shuttle bus service is offered to those who are unable to hike. The rocks are stunning, I originally thought there would be one or two of the big rocks, but it goes on for quite a distance. It was fascinating. While we were there we also got the privilege to see a falcon that lived on the cliff above the rocks.

I'd suggest wearing waterproof shoes or running shoes, definitely NOT flip flops or sandals. Also, be prepared to do a steady hike back up when you are leaving.
