We were able to visit this beautiful spot with a group of teenagers who delighted in walking on the sea floor at low tide. I have vivid memories of the laughter and squeals of delight and disgust as the mud squished up between their toes.

Pictures can simply not do this beautiful place justice. You must see it to believe it. Do yourself the pleasure of visiting this place -- it should be on every bucket list.

We had a great day at hopewell. We arrived at low tide and did the 15 minute walk to the observation deck then down to the ocean floor. The beach had so many photo opportunities. After we took lots of pictures we made the walk back up the hill and decided to stay in the area so we went to cape enrage before the return for high tide. If you can plan to visit both. What a great day.

I highly recommend this for anyone visiting the Maritimes. Walking on the ocean floor and knowing in a few hours 40'+ of water will be over where you stood is an amazing thing. You need to check the tide schedule on line (available on Hopewell Rocks website) and plan to spend a few hours here during low tide and high tide to get the full experience. We came a couple of hours before the tide started to come in and got to walk on the ocean floor and quite a ways on the "beach". There are signs at the stairs that tell you when you have to be back off the ocean bed before the tide comes in. And it comes in very quickly, rising about 6 feet per hour. It is unfathomable to know that 100 billion tonnes of water flow through here every 12 hours. If you want to see the highest tides in the world come to Hopewell Rocks!

I and my family of 5 adults (ages 42 to 77) and 5 children (ages 3 to 24) recently visited the Hopewell Rocks and found them to be a fantastic site for all ages. We first were there when the tide was in and the rocks were just small islands or rocks sticking out of the ocean. Then we returned when the tide was out and we were able to walk along the ocean floor, some 20 feet below where the water was a few hours ago. It was an amazing feeling for both young and old. The difference between high and low tide was around 26 feet. I heartily recommend this site for anyone who is near this part of New Brunswick. This is my third visit and it won't be my last.

This was our 1st time visiting and it was Awesome.
We took lots of nice pictures and had a great time.
Next time we may try kayaking.
My bit of advice, bring sandals you don't mind getting muddy, and take the golf cart shuttle back to the visitor center.
