Can you imagine all the water in all the rivers in the world, dumping its entire volume into one place? Well, that happens twice a day at Fundy National Park in New Brunswick. The park sits on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy (on the south shore is the province of Nova Scotia), home to the highest and lowest tides on the planet. The water displaced every approximately six hours (it varies, so be careful as tides are dangerous) is indeed that much, but it’s saltwater, not fresh. Please consult local websites for daily tide times to be safe.
One minute, you’re walking through the water at the beach, and a few hours later, you’re walking, literally on the seabed. This makes for not just ocean fun, but also an opportunity to explore tidal pools and beachcomb.
Visitors to Fundy National Park enjoy kayaking, hiking and biking on the Caribou Plain Trail, and swimming with salmon! Camping is available all year round; you might like to try sleeping in a comfy yurt after you’ve sung and danced the evening away at a traditional Maritime kitchen party held at the historic Molly Kool house.
