Well... it is a must-see if you are travelling in Nova Scotia and/or New-Brunswick! We recommend to time an activity where you can see and enjoy the low tide AND the high tide (so plan ahead and spend time there). The real show is seeing the tide difference and walk the ocean floor.

Timing must be everything. Been here twice and still didn't really see the water rise. I saw it swirl around a lot and thought the area was pretty.

The bay of fundy national park is glorious. Some wonderful walking and cycling trails, many by the coastline. Beautiful views and scenery as well as suspension bridge. It has some of the highest tides in the world, at low tide you can walk on the ocean floor with huge rocks that look like sculptures

It's Incredible to walk on the occen bed when tides recede,and the waters move away from the shore. The sceneries are just spactacular. You need to experience it to fully grasp what I say.

Etymology of the word Fundy is of French origin “fendu,” meaning “split.” From a local guide in Saint John, New Brunswick, that this bay marks the place where continents collided about 200 million years ago. Pangaea, which was the western half of what is now Africa, moved west to become the South American continent. Tectonic forced moved part of that to the northern hemisphere, as evidenced by the type of rocks south of Saint John River and that north of Fundy—where a “split” between continents united. The Bay partially separates the Canadian Maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia [Latin for New Scotland], and border the US state of Maine. The extreme tidal range is the world’s highest. The incoming tide rises too quickly to outrun, and the outgoing TIDE will ‘wash’ you away, and causes a “reverse falls” in the Saint John River. Seriously, many have died from the tidal mini-tsunamis that occur twice daily. Depending upon the position of the sun and moon, semidiurnal tides occur an astounding FOUR times each day, with about six hours between high and low tides. Our Grand Circle Travel tour group of 36 was fortunate to be here during a full moon and witness three incoming tides, and one low tide, at Hopewell Rocks. I walked on the ocean floor☺

Fundy’s tidal range is about 52 feet [much more with full moons] and worldwide average tidal range is less than four feet. The funned-shaped bay causes powerful incoming tides of about 100 BILLION tons of water, more than all the combined rivers in the world over the same period. Outgoing tides are equally powerful—and destructive. The tides are not only destructive, they’re productive. The Annapolis Royal Generating Station is one of the few in the world and the only one in North America. It generates 20 megawatts of power. So much for solar power or constructing hydroelectric dams.

We went at low tide and then came bay at high tide... Amazing to see the difference !! Was really cool to walk the ocean floor at low tide & walk among all the different rock formations.

Yes, this is a body of water like very few others. The amount of water that flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy in a day is equal to all of the water pumped into all of the oceans by all of the rivers of the earth. Really. It is home to the highest tides in the world, the magnificence of Hopewell Rocks, the rare natural phenomenon of tidal bores on rivers emptying into the Bay. In Moncton a man was surfing the tidal bore or you can walk on dykes built by the Acadians. Then there are the Cliffs of Fundy, the wonderful beaches interspersed along its banks and of course the Fundy National Park

It was all fog and clouds when we visited. We could barely see anything. The roads are new and trails are clearly marked. Would visit again

What an amazing part of the world. So interesting that because of the geography the tides can change so dramatically. Apart from the tides the place itself is really beautiful and well worth the visit. Its great to walk on the seabed, very assesable, would recommend you do a tour and learn all about the place.
