About
Our tour begins with a visit to the seaside community of St. Martins. You'll step back in time and sense the serenity of this area with its wharf, fishing boats, and piled lobster traps. With the ocean as a backdrop, you'll capture memorable photos of many interesting features such as lighthouses and the twin covered bridges. 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. 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. You'll also visit the famous Reversing Falls, where the huge tides from the Bay of Fundy force the mighty Saint John River. Before returning to the cruise ship, we'll stop and explore the unique Old City Market in the heart of Saint John and learn why the local folks have loved to buy fresh produce here since 1876. Please note: all tours depart at local time and depend on cruise ship arrival.

Our guide took us to City Market 1st thing in the am, no crowd at all. Did 2 trips to reversing rapids, perfectly timed by our guide!! Trip to St. Martin's was a once in a lifetime event. Got to walk on the ocean's floor, visited 2 caves that would be filled up within 6 hours. Where else could we get this experience,,,duh,, no place!! This excursion was so worth the cost, so happy we did it.

Took this tour through Costco Shore Excurstions...I will say Keith our guide was very likeable and knowledgeable. However, the tour is quite long and no snacks provided. It is only about 5 min to the reversing rapids, then you are dropped off at a crowded market down town, then long drive to St Martin's where you are left for an hour, jam packed with many buses loaded with people all trying to get lunch at two small restaurants. The Seaside restaurant that we went to had long line at cash register when we arrived, and no one said hello, or told us to seat ourselves...we were all trying to figure out if we ordered at the register or sat down...it appeared only 1 or 2 servers for the whole group. If I were to do it again, I would just get a taxi to the reversing rapids at high tide and then go back for low tide since it was so close. Several falling asleep on the long bus ride to the caves and back. We couldn't wait to get back on the ship, as we decided not to eat at St Martin's due to the crowd and poor service.

Keith our Gide did a great job keeping us informed about the Bay and tide though we thought beforehand we could see more but our time spent was high tide ... he took us to
the city market and we enjoyed the visit... great tour and, as mentioned, Keith was an outstanding tour guide.... great tour!!!!

We were very disappointed with this tour. For one, our ticket did not even list a time of departure for the tour (it said only "Tour time assigned by ship arrival" whatever time that means?). So we searched for the bus and waited 1 hour for it to leave.
We spent way too much time in St. John looking at older homes and buildings and never even got to the National Park. We watched a video on the bus instead! When we got to the Fundy coast there were at least 15 buses there and 2 small restaurants and 2 port a potties. I looked around our bus on the way to the coast and back to St. John and nearly everyone was sleeping. We paid $84 each for this? No snack or meal provided, and no way to stand in long line in the restaurant if you also wanted to actually walk around the coast. I do not recommend this tour unless some changes are made.

It sounds like you were here on a day with three ships so people overwhelm our small area. We unfortunately have a small area and 12,000 extra people can take over the area The national park you mentioned is never part of our tour as to get to it is a three hour drive from Saint John. There are so many things called Fundy around here that often places are confused.

Confusion from the get go. Could not find the person with a sign “Freedom Travel”. After asking several people and guides, we found the person with a clipboard. However, there was no Van for us since this vehicle left before our ship docked. The man with the clipboard made several telephone calls and found a Royal Caribbean Tour bus which had some room in the back of the bus. We had to board this bus. Not what we expected to share this tour with 48 other people. Tour guide on this bus was not very informative. Tour was to be 5 hrs. We had 4:35min on this tour. Would not recommend, unless it is a TripAdvisor , viator tour.

An good tour of the Fundy coast. We were able to visit the reversing rapids at both low and high tide. It is more meaninful to be able to truly see the change. This tour provided a chance to see beautiful scenery and understand the magnitude of the tide changes. The tour guide was knowledgeable. I was disappointed that it was another large bus tour. We had 8 people and were expecting a smaller tour of 15 or less.

George did an excellent job driving and adding commentary now and then to Debbie's excellent description of the sites we visited plus some history and interesting facts of the St John and St Martins areas. We really enjoyed our 5 hour excursion, saw a lot and learned a lot. Thanks.

Hi Tracy I am sorry you didn't enjoy it. Did your group not stop at the Reversing falls and City market. it is an hour drive to get to the village of St martins, did your guide not allow time there?

St Martins and the Fundy Trail are well worth the visit and the time . You will not be disappointed in this place , The people are very friendly and are quick to point out all the local places to see . There is much to do here from exploring the sea caves and kayaking in the ocean to vising local craft stores and finding one of a kind art and crafts made locally . Spend a day or a week or two .......you will want to return again and again :)
