Tour Details

Bay of Fundy Trail

Enjoy a scenic ride along the Bay of Fundy Trail Parkway and learn about the area's rich history at the Big Salmon River Interpretive Centre.

Your expedition begins from St. John where we will stop to have a look at the Reversing Rapids. Your guide will explain how the powerful force of the Bay of Fundy tides actually forces the mighty St. John River upstream at high tide. As we drive away from a populated area though the winding roads of the forests of New Brunswick, your guide will entertain you with stories of those who have lived and created a livelihood in this remote area.

You will discover what life was like for the area's early settlers through several historic artifacts and displays at the Big Salmon River Interpretive Centre. Learn about the pioneers and their flourishing logging, fishing and shipbuilding past.

Next get your cameras and eyes ready for the awe inspiring vistas along the trail. You will want to remember these views forever. Take advantage of the multiple scenic lookouts for spectacular views out over the Bay of Fundy, a body of water with the highest tidal range in the world. Explore connecting paths and descend stairways to walk along the pristine beaches and gaze up at the coastal cliffs. Be on the lookout for gorgeous waterfalls as well

Fun Day at Fundy

Excellent tour. Amazing to see flow in river reverse. Great guide and lunch stop for the best seafood chowder ever. Fun to walk out into the bay at low tide.

We spent a wonderful day with our guide, Loren. He was more than willing to customize the tour to our preferences. With just five people in the group, we were able to learn a lot! At several points, Loren gave us choices about how we would like to spend our time along the trail. He shared his experiences having lived in the area his whole life which gave us nice insight to the area and the changes it has seen over time. We saw fabulous greenery, picked up wishing rocks, ate delicious chowder (which is why my husband wanted to go on this tour), and even saw the Canadian Coast Guard pick up crew at the lighthouse we visited!

One of the highlights of our cruise

*This tour got off to a slightly rocky start because our ship was unexpectedly docked at a different pier. If this happens to you (if you end up at the "industrial" pier instead of the "city" pier), walk past the tent and out of the fence along the red walkway toward town and you'll find the tour company - OUTSIDE the fence. This was a great tour! We ended up on a private tour with just the two of us (while hordes of people were stuck on the ship's tour buses). Jeremiah took us to quite a few sites and taught us a lot of the history of the area. We walked on the rocky beach, hiked up to and inside the sea caves, hiked through part of the forest to beautiful falls, had a delicious lunch at a beach side restaurant, did some shopping, drove through miles of gorgeous scenery, saw the reversing falls. Highly recommended (we've already passed the info to friends for their cruise next year). Would definitely tour with this company again if we get back to the Saint John area.

Instead of being on a bus with 50 people, we wound up with a private guide, Annabelle, who took just the two of us to the Bay of Fundy. She had been a teacher earlier in her career so she did a fabulous job educating us that day. We stopped and had fish and chips/chowder and beat all the buses. Would highly recommend to anyone (even on a big bus).
