“St. Martin sea caves”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

New Brunswick was one of the ports of call from our cruise on the princess. We rented a car and drove approximately 1 hour to the caves. The scenery is beautiful and the caves were half full of the ocean. There is a restaurant there and it serves the best clam chowder. It is worth the trip...if our ship was in port longer than we would have stayed to see tides low and high but we could not...but we will be back one day.

“Good food great views, such a beautiful place”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

St Martin's is a picturesque quaint little fishing village directly on the Bay of Fundy. The tide here rises and falls by 30 feet, resulting in the harbor emptying of water stranding the fishing boats on the dry ocean floor! The village is also famous for the naturally formed Sea Caves which are accessible at low tide when the water receeds by 300 feet! You can literally walk on the ocean floor! The Cave beach has two local resturants which have a wide variety of bounties of the seas to offer, I like the Seafood Chowder the best. This place is a favorite of Cruise Ship Passenger, tourists and Locals alike, worth the 40 minute drive from uptown Saint John.

“Really Brings Home the Uniqueness of the Bay of Fundy”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

St Martins is a great spot to experience the power and uniqueness of the extreme tides of the Bay of Fundy. You can see lobster boats sitting on the bottom of the harbor at low tide...and you can walk out and explore the Sea Caves...which are mostly filled with water at high tide. It is good to see the caves at both high and low tides to get the most out of the experience. Walking to the sea caves, one crosses the long rocky beach and does encounter a small flowing stream about six or eight feet across and maybe six to eight inches deep of flowing water. Therefore, you need some sort of water shoes or sandals to comfortably cross the stream. The caves are fun to explore and see the impact of the tides--with most and seaweed on the ceilings of the caves. Walking around the point of the peninsula reveals two other caves not visible from the shoreline. Be careful on the slippery seaweed coating the rocks along the route to these two additional caves. Going to the more secluded caves is fun because not as many people do it. I would say it is surely worth the effort and gives one a very unique experience to remember for your visit to the Bay of Fundy.
