    Norwegian excursion for unique trip
    We took this excursion to Hopewell Rocks with our Norwegian Escape cruise. We enjoyed Hopewell Rocks and were glad we went! As drive time was very long (but comfortable bus and great guide) we did not get to spend a long time there. Yet the water was close to rocks when arrived and visibly down before we left. There were several steps down but had viewing areas along the way so could stop if wanted. Unique visit and opportunity so glad we went!

    INCREDIBLE! Not to be missed
    Went here with a group of friends and were able to catch the tide rising. It is worth taking the several flights of stairs down and back up. The volunteers on hand do a great job of keeping you out of harms way and explaining and answering questions. Simply amazing visit!

    I wanted to visit this scenic attraction so badly.
    The Hopewell Rocks consisted of island rock structures just off of the main cliffs. The Bay of Fundy’s tides can surround these structures at times, or these rocks can also be dry. I went to this area when the tides surrounded these rocks. I could not go down to walk on the floor, but I saw the rocks from atop. Many of these rocks supported evergreen trees. It was a very scenic and serene environment.

    Nature at it's best
    Absolutely gorgeous. It's incredible the power of nature. Well worth the admission and the time spent to learn about the Bay of Fundy. Just make sure to bring shoes that can handle mud and water! :)

    Really? Just some rocks? Come on people, don't you love unique nature?
    Not just some rocks as the negative reviews state, although a bit expensive 18 CAD/person is a bit high for maintaining mainly the staircase that leads to the area where the rocks are concentrated. Having said that, there are very few places around the world as naturally attractive as this area: - there is a large car park, well maintained, and after paying the fee, you reach the area housing the toilets/shop/info etc - you can also pay to be taken from here to the area where the rocks are by a driving tour, if you are old or needy but you will miss the beautiful trail between the trees where you can see squirrels, birds, etc and listen to nature - once you reach the area where the rocks are, there are more toilets and vending machines. Due to being late September, their shop here was closed, thankfully all kids were in school so we came across only large groups of older people - you can then descend via their well maintained staircase to the sea level and walk to the most further away point where the rocks are, one more mesmerising than the other - returning, I noticed some people had muddy shoes which they were able to wash in an area not far from the stair case: I guess you are paying for all this maintenance Some people saying that PEI is cheaper, here is some trivia: returning from the island via that amazing long bridge you have to pay 50.25 CAD - then you realise that even PEI is not that free!!!!

    Visit at both low and high tide to enjoy the rocks at their best.
    One of my bucket list items was to visit the Bay of Fundy and the Hopewell Rocks, I was not disappointed. We visited just after low tide, 10.00am, descending the steps and admiring the views from every level. A walk along the beach took us to the various highlights, it’s possible to imagine the shapes of many things amongst the different rock formations. Having spent between 2/3 hours we left the area for a short time before returning to be there at high tide. Watching the water rush in, covering the areas where we had previously walked was fascinating. You should definitely try to visit at both low and high tide. We found the visitor centre and information boards provided us with what we needed to make our visit more interesting.

    Accessibility Issue
    Beautiful and interesting to see - once. There was a ramp available (instead of taking the approximately 100 stairs each way) for those with ambulatory issues. It was not offered to the tourists with difficulty climbing stairs. Bring an extra pair of shoes for the mud.

    Amazing…
    An incredible few hours spend here witnessing the lowest part of the tide, to start, with the gorgeous sunshine and gentle breeze… plus getting covered in mud, but that’s all part of the fun and adventure. Don’t go wearing your best shoes and clothes if you want to walk on the ocean floor. We stayed long enough to then with was the high tide coming in until it reached its maximum, what a dramatic effect and difference it is, completely changing the landscape, it’s incredible and makes for some stunning pictures. Be sure to check out the view points for gorgeous as well as the tranquil Plage de Demoiselles Beach.

    Check the tide tables before you go
    Check the tide times before you head out. Three hours before and after low tide you can walk on the ocean floor. Definitely recommend to bring good footwear that can get muddy and/or sprayed off. I wore hiking boots and that was fine. Crocs also seemed popular. It was an easy enough walk down the path and stairs to the flowerpots rocks. Alternatively you can take the $2 golf cart shuttle. Gorgeous place and really cool natural wonder. We enjoyed the small self-guided interpretive center. The gift shop had a lot of stuff and was reasonably priced.

    So glad we visited
    Beautiful park, wonderfully maintained, with well informed and helpful staffing. Loved it! Came in morning for low tide, wore comfy rubber boots and walked on bay floor by flower pots. Place to rinse shoes after. Walked down and took shuttle back up after checking out ramp farther down. Good lunch at interpretative center, nice gift shop, rest rooms. Great spots around to sit and picnic, Came back later for high tide. Next day, tickets good for two days, walked other direction to visit Des Demoiselles. Lovely quiet walk, recommend it highly.

    Loved the experience
    Walking on the sea bed of the Bay of Fundy was a wonderful learning experience for our homeschooled grandsons. We watched the tide come in one day and hiked for an hour during low tide the next day. There are hoses and brushes to clean your shoes and you can purchase a token for a ride up the hill.

    Interesting but timing important.
    Worth seeing, unfortunately there at high tide so couldn't walk on the beach. It is an 1 1/2 hour bus ride each way from St. John NB but you get to see the New Brunswick countryside. Stopped at a small town onBay of Fundy to stretch legs. Bus left one hour late so tour rushed. Expensive tour. Good to see....once.

    A must see at low and high tide
    This is a must see place both at low tide and at high tides. At low tide we spent about an hour on the ocean floor walking around in the mud and exploring. Be prepared with appropriate foot wear as you WILL GET MUDDY! We went back the next day to peer down at the rocks at high tide but only spent a few minutes taking pictures to compare before heading back.

    Gorgeous
    We explored Hopewell Rocks at low tide since we arrived close to closing time. It was amazing as we took the 99 stairs down to the ocean floor and walked around the base of the iconic arch and all the coves. Be prepared for lots of walking.

    Other worldly in places
    The travel pictures do not do this attraction justice. The rocks are huge and it is easy to picture high tide. It is worth the walk down the steps to the bottom of the cliff, then to walk wherever you are allowed to get an up close idea of the power of the tide.

Don't get me wrong, the rocks are beautiful, and if you can there at the right time to go kayaking or walk on the ocean floor, do it. BUT! The provincial park is kind of terrible, and I cannot recommend it.

We had limited time, and we missed both peak periods so decided to hike the trails in the park. It was insanely crowded. The "hike" was basically walking in a non stop horde of people, so it was loud and slow and we couldn't get a good view at any of the lookouts. The lookouts themselves were not great, and often had a worse view than another spot nearby. The worst part was that the trails are completely wooded - you can't see or hear the water at all! What's the point?

We lasted less than an hour. It was miserable. And if you have mobility issues at all, do not go. The trails are very steep, and the lookouts have stairs, not ramps.

We took a 2 week trip through the Maritimes, and this was our least favourite location/activity.

We visited at low tides (was at 10 am on that day), went for lunch at Alma and returned for high tides at 3pm. Breath-taking views and very safe for young children (with adequate parental supervision). A unique place to visit! From the entrance you can walk 15 min through the woods to the stairs leading to the beach - the walk back is a mild ascent, you might want to take the shuttle back for 2$ if you are not in the best of shape or your kid does not feel like walking back. The park staff is always present and can assist if needed.

I've been here a few times over my life time. This will no doubt be my last trip.
Tide and rock formations used to be phenomenal however the administration of the park are off the rails. They seem to be shoving a particular experience down our throats to possibly justify the charges. The parking and interpretation center should be closer the main attraction. It's a 15 minute hike to get there. The trails and walk are nice however a long hike may not be to everyone's taste. They do provide a shuttle service. At two dollars per trip. Four dollars to come and go. The whole thing seems contrived to squeeze a few more dollars out of tourists. I also remember the rocks themselves being a lot more spectacular than this.

Hopewell Rocks in the Bay of Fundy is a truly fascinating and beautiful destination to explore. First off, there was plenty of free parking available, which made the visit more convenient. For the park admission of approximately $35 for 2 adults, it was well worth the price.

The gift shop and cafe provided a delightful view, adding to the overall experience. After walking down the trail to the beach during low tide, we realized that going back up the hill could be a bit tiring, so we opted for the trolley by purchasing tokens ($2/pp) for a more comfortable return journey.

One thing we learned the hard way was not wearing appropriate footwear. We brought a backpack to store our shoes so we could walk on the beach barefoot, but in hindsight, water shoes would have been a better choice. Fortunately, there are stations at the top of the stairs where you can wash your feet, but expect a lineup during busy times.

Despite the minor inconvenience, Hopewell Rocks proved to be a really cool spot to explore, and we were glad we checked it out. The unique rock formations and the power of the Bay of Fundy tides make it a must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts and those seeking awe-inspiring views.

1) cost is out of sync with experience
2) cost is based on a 24 hour period to allow for visits at low and high tide but reality is that most visitors won't return to the same park twice. There is no ability to pay a lesser cost for a one-time visit.
3) hikes are short so once you have seen the stacks, there is not much else to do. The stacks are not very impressive.

Amazing views, amazing experience.
Even if there is a lot of people it is still possible to walk around freely and take good pictures.

If you have trouble walking or you don't have enough time, don't hesitate to take the shuttle - it's very cheap, fast and fun.

Come back the next day to see the difference.

We visited twice so that we could experience both high and low tides. Truly amazing. For our first visit we opted to do the 15 minute walk to the viewing area. But on the way back we happily paid the additional $2 for the ride back. As time was short on our second visit we used the shuttle in both directions. We also enjoyed a pleasant light lunch in the cafe where we also enjoyed spectacular views.

My friend had read about the Bay of Fundy changing tides and we went to the Hopewell Rocks to check it out. The place closes technically at 5 pm but you can leave after 5 anyways. We arrived about 4:10 and it was a short walk and about medium tide. There was plenty of beach accessible but apparently in a few hours after we left, the tide rises to cover the lower steps down. We talked to the "ranger" who was very nice and knowledgeable about the area before went went down the stairs. Interesting but not too exciting for me.

This was a family outing. 2 adults, one 13 yr old and one 11 yr old. You can walk to the start of the steps at the top or take a tram ($2 up and $2 down), your choice.
We made sure to time the trip for low tide to walk along the beach and discover how huge the Rocks really are.
But, be prepared to walk down 100 steps, and don't forget they are still there when you want to leave. lol
There are lots of rocks to walk over and lots of red mud which is very deceiving. The teenager stepped into a spot and went down to his knees and when he tried to get his foot out it ripped his sandal totally apart trying to pull it out. Then he had to walk back across the rocks, up the steps, and out to the car with one sandal and a bare foot. He was not a happy camper that is for sure.
But, everyone was astounded at how high the tide went up on the rocks when it came in and there was lots of exploring to do while down there.
All in all, everyone had a great time.

This is a really breathtaking place:
the greatness and power of nature captivate the eyes.
prodigious mastery of water, ground, and air.
the power of life manifests itself in seemingly absolutely unsuitable places.
incredible combinations of colors, shapes, and light strongly manifested even on cloudy days.
