Fran Steeves
Bay of Fundy Buff

My job is like a dream come true. I tell my visitors that maybe I’ll have to get a real job someday and wake up but right now I’m enjoying the moment. I have to come here in the off season just to be close to the ocean.

Tamer of the Tides

Fran loves her job, she talks to people from all over the world who come to witness the power of the Bay of Fundy tides and how they’ve carved out the Hopewell Rocks over the years. You can walk on the ocean floor in the morning and then later in the day, kayak around the flower pot shaped rocks at high tide.

The Hidden Gemof the Canadian Maritimes

New Brunswick is on the East Coast of Canada, right above Maine and beside Quebec. Some people think it’s the best thing about the East Coast, and of course, we think they’re right! With five diverse regions, we have the highest tides in the world on the Bay of Fundy, warm saltwater beaches, mountains, rivers, cities, small towns and warm welcomes.
