Tour Details

Top 10 Highlights & Bay of Fundy

Grab your camera and get ready to explore Saint John and Saint Martins. Saint John, also known as the Greatest Little City in the East, is a vibrant waterfront town and you'll soon understand why as you immerse yourself in its Victorian charms, Irish roots and friendly people. Also visit Saint Martins, the village was founded as Quaco by 1783 by soldiers from the disbanded loyalist King's Orange Rangers, life here is governed by the rhythm of the world's highest tides.

Stroll through picturesque tree-lined neighborhoods and make your way down to the historical architecture in the Trinity Royal Heritage Conservation Area. At the City Market, you will meander through aisles of stalls with vendors peddling everything from fruit and cheese to gourmet coffees, teas, and local apparel. Enjoy the immaculate gardens, monuments, and bandstand at the public Kings Square, then head to the Loyalist Burial Grounds with its semi-circular arch-topped wrought iron gates. Once here, look at the worn engravings on the original tombstones of the first residents who arrived in America for "a way of life free of persecution and hostilities." While in town head to the Saint John River to watch the Reversing Falls Rapids, a series of rapids and whirlpools that occur as the river collides with the Bay of Fundy.

Down in the quaint fishing village of Saint Martin, you will find the world's best seafood chowder and the world-famous Bay of Fundy. This special bay has the world's highest tides thanks to its unique delta shape. At the extreme, the difference between the low and high tides can measure up to 19 meters! Arrive at the bay when the Atlantic Ocean has rescinded and walk up to 40 feet across the ocean floor and see dark, hidden caves, breathtaking rock cliffs, dramatic mud flats and much more. While here, learn about the 12 species of whales as well as dolphins, fish, seals and other marine life that call these marvelous waters home.

This tour is a must-do for history buffs and bonafide nature lovers! Book this popular tour now and reserve your place.

I really enjoyed this tour. The driver and guide were terrific. They told our group stories about the area, pointed out places of interest as we passed by them. They made the tour interesting and fun. The day we took the tour was rainy and windy, we ran into several different problems and the driver and tour guide came up with alternate things to do. Which took up the time. Overall what could have been a bad day turned into a fun adventure.

Reversing tides was an amazing experience. The bus ride took us through beautiful fall foliage areas and to a quaint fishing village.
