We walked the ocean floor at low tide and it was amazing. Great views, beautiful scenery and lots of crabs. We wore water shoes which was the best option. The tides are incredible. The best part is it's free. Just watch where you walk and be careful.

Walk the ocean floor at low tide!

Great opportunity to walk the ocean floor along the Fundy tidal bore at low tide. Beautiful rock formations and high cliffs to show just how much the tide waters rise and fall twice daily!

Beautiful spot for a picnic

There are a few very friendly staff that will explain where to go & what time to return & they help people down the stairs who require the help. They show you where to go to explore.

Symphony of red and green
Aug. 2021 • Couples
We were driving along the scenic road, Route 215, and had a chance to visit picturesque Burntcoat Head Provincial Park, where walking on the river bed is allowed at low tide. The contrasts of red sand of the hills with perching emerald green trees, rusty colors of the river bed, and deep blue sky were breathtaking. The Burntcoat Head Provincial Park was definitely a highlight of the day for us. Highly recommend; especially for those who love ebb and flow of the Bay of Fundy.

Worth the drive at low tide
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Worth seing at low tide. Great landscape. Put washable shoes. Very muddy and slippery. Water available to wash shoes at exit. Arrive at minimum low tide to have enough time to explore sea floor.

Nice spot but best to view at high tide and low tide. 53 feet tides. A really nice view but bring wet/mud footwear. Watch the time if you are going out on the ocean floor.

Incredible experience! Nice drive from exit 8. Lovely picnic park, clean washrooms! Bring water shoes, there’s a water trough where you can rinse your shoes and feet, so well set up. There is a lovely café located in Tennecap called the Tennecafé. They serve coffee, ice cream, stone pizza on Fridays. The owner is lovely and her Dad plays the accordion when he visits. Lovely spot, lots of tables, a treasure. A great location for tour buses as there is so much space.

Well worth the drive!!

This may seem a little out of the way from Halifax or Dartmouth, but it is really worth it. Check the tides before you go! So awesome to walk on the bottom of the ocean and see the wear and tear it leaves behind. The park is very well organized, lots of green space for picnics, very well maintained, lots of great signage. Make it a must see when considering local destinations during Covid!

This is a must do at low tide. It was extremely windy the day we were there but even that couldn't stop what is a memory that will last a lifetime. We will definitely return regularly.
