1. High and Low Tides – Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick
It’s a tough decision: low tide or high tide? At the Bay of Fundy’s Hopewell Rocks, there’s no need to choose. Indulge in the best of both worlds. Home to the world’s highest tides, the Bay of Fundy is an experience like no other. During low tide, the secrets of the Hopewell Rocks are revealed. Sink your toes into the warm sand of the ocean floor while you learn about the geology of the area, view hidden coves and discover how the rushing tides continue to shape the rocks today. Six hours later, the high tides return as water rushes in to hug the famous Flowerpot Rocks, providing a completely different perspective to this marvel of nature. Jump in a kayak and paddle around the towering sandstone pillars, or take in the view from dry land. Stay for the day and enjoy both tidal spectacles. Hopewell Rocks is open from mid-May to early October.
