Halls Harbour is a great place to visit during high tide when the lobster boats are bobbing in the water. Then again when the tide recedes and the boats are sitting on the ocean floor. Enjoy a lobster dinner while watching the tides..

Travel her.e close to low tide. If you arrive 2-3 BEFORE low tide, you'll still see the boats on the ground and I'm sure it's a few hours after low tide. So don't panic if it's not exact. We arrived about 2 hours before low...More

I’ve had a lot of lobster from many different places and this was the best lobster I’ve ever had. I had heard that lobster from the Bay of Fundy is the best in the world because of the micronutrients from the bottom and I believe...More

The harbor changes throughout the day. When the tide is out, there are boats lying on the dry seabed. When the tide comes in they are back afloat. There is a good giftshop and several places to get something to eat. Definitely a place to...More

We had traveled the coast searching for a wharf experience. Halls Harbour was a wonderful platform to view the changing tides and enjoy the succulent meal. Very well managed experience and presented meal.

In the few times I’ve visited this harbour, I’d say to have the complete visit, you need to time it to come during high tide, and then again at low tide. Just amazing to see! You can climb down the ladder to the bottom at...More
