Tour Details

Explore one of the world's most dramatic and dynamic coastlines, Atlantic Canada's Bay of Fundy. Home to the highest tides in the world, the Bay of Fundy is a 170-mile-long ocean bay that stretches between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast. Each day 100 billion tons of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle - more than the flow of all the world's freshwater rivers put together!

This tour will take you to St. Martins, one of the quaintest fishing villages in New Brunswick. Over the past decade, St. Martins has become known as one of New Brunswick`s most beautiful seaside vacation resort communities. The village is a magnet for artists and photographers wishing to capture the unspoiled beauty of the area. A small community of artisans produces pottery, jewelry, paintings and sculptures. And there are a growing number of unique shops and galleries. Learn about this small community's wooden ship-building industry and see some of the highest tides in the world ebb and flow during your visit. At St. Martins you will have the opportunity to visit the twinned covered bridges, lighthouses, and even walk on the ocean floor - at low tide of course. Don't forget to visit the wave-carved sea caves in the sandstone cliff if the tide is low enough to allow access while you're there. It is a photographer's delight! There will also be an opportunity to purchase a mug of world-famous seafood chowder.

Back in St. John, you'll have an added bonus of also visiting the world-famous Reversing Falls, where the huge tides from the Bay of Fundy force the mighty Saint John River to flow in reverse, twice every day. The final stop on this tour will be the Old City Market. First opened in 1876, the Old City Market is the oldest continuing farmer's market in all of Canada. The roof of the City Market resembles the inverted keel of a ship, with hand-hewn timbers and dove-tailed joints that have stood fast for more than a century. From the market you will return to your ship pier.

Covered alot of Town November 8, 2016
Reviewer: Debbie Klein  
Both guide & bus driver were very knowledgeable and answered any questions we posed.  The office for the excursion is diriectly across the street from the pier, exit the tent and look to your left for representatives.  Leaves on a small bus.  Would recommend this over the cruise line tour.
