Fundy Coast to Shore Tour

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.

The Fundy Coast to Shore Tour was quite enjoyable. Our tour guide pointed out quite a number of historical places and discussed the interesting events that occurred in and around the city/ country towns. A beautiful drive through the countryside led us to a walk on the boulder covered ocean floor (low tide). Timing worked out so we got to see reversing falls flowing in one direction at the beginning of the drive and the other direction near the end of the drive.... quite impressive.

The tour was very good the conductor was very patience and gave us very good insight of the tour and the places we would meet on our journey. I enjoyed it and had a good time making my bucket list fulfilled. Walking on the sea floor was my dream as the tide was low so I could do that. I would recommend that company to anyone.

Amazing tour! Our tour guide shared many interesting bits of information and the driver was so darn good. The fundy coast was an incredible site to see especially if given the opportunity to witness the tides, both high and low.
