7. Visit Hopewell Rocks
Visitors will want to head here both for the high and low tide, where you can really appreciate the height and range of the highest tides in the world. The time span between low and high tide is 6 hours and 13 minutes, thus presenting a unique opportunity to walk on the ocean’s floor from 3 hours before low tide until 3 hours after. Many choose to see high tide first and then return later to explore the ocean floor with its coves, beaches, and flowerpot rock formations.
Others choose to rent kayaks and enjoy the unique experience of paddling around the flowerpot rocks at high tide. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife in the area including moose, red fox, and black bears. The Interpretative Centre is the perfect interactive experience where visitors can learn why the Bay of Fundy is unique and about the surrounding landscape.
