The Bay of Fundy

Some places simply beg for superlatives. Biggest. Highest. Deepest. Grandest. And others? Others defy language, and rather beg you to let the feelings of the place wash over you.

Welcome to New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy region.

Saint John, NB: Ranked on CNN Travel's Must-Visit List for 2024

Are our cheeks red? We couldn't be more flattered (but not at all surprised) to see The Bay of Fundy's very own Saint John, New Brunswick ranked in CNN Travel's Top Places to Visit in 2024! Saint John may be the only Canadian city on the list, but they're still in great company with places like Greece, Spain and South Korea also making the cut.

The World's Highest Tides

Here, your capacity for wonder isn’t just filled. It overflows. The tides in the Bay of Fundy can rise an unbelievable 16 metres (52.5 ft.), with 160 billion tonnes of seawater gushing in and out of the bay twice a day. 

They are best experienced at The Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park, where you can walk around giant sea stack monoliths at low tide then watch the tide rise up around them. Come high tide, you can weave a kayak around the very rocks you were gazing up at.

The power of the tide is also visible in Saint John at the Reversing Rapids. Another place where you can experience the effect of the tide is the tidal bore in Moncton.
