Bay of Fundy Tides

Experience the Bay of Fundy Tides

The Bay of Fundy tides are New Brunswick’s world-famous natural wonder. Families looking for fun vacation ideas and travellers looking for unique experiences will both be wowed by this powerful force of nature.

The Bay of Fundy tides are the highest tides in the world, with 100-billion tonnes of seawater gushing in and out of the bay twice a day.

Visitors will be eyewitness to the dramatic power of this tide cycle, both at its highest and lowest point. Best witnessed at The Hopewell Rocks, at low tide you can walk the ocean floor and look up at the cliffs and rocks. At high tide, enormous rock formations that once towered over you are now barely peeking out above the surface.

The time span between low and high tide is 6 hours and 13 minutes, meaning you can experience both in one day. Here are a few of our key Bay of Fundy tidal locations to explore. Make sure to check the tide schedules before you go!
