The Bay of Fundy and its adjacent landscape is unique in its geological formations, terrestrial and marine ecosystems, cultural heritage, and its cross section of rural communities and urban areas. It compares with more than 529 significant landscapes in 108 countries in the world that have been recognized as World UNESCO biosphere sites. At the same time the Bay of Fundy is one of the most dramatic and unusual attractions on Canada’s East Coast. The world’s highest tides rise and fall up to 16 meters twice each day. In addition to the drama of the tides themselves, naturally this huge current has created many interesting landscape features and attractions. Huge ”flowerpot rocks” have been formed, fossils exposed and ocean-going boats rest on the empty flats when the tide is out.
For those interested in wildlife, world class whale watching (15 species) is found here and each summer hundreds of thousands of migrating shorebirds feed on the tidal edge.
A highlight of this tour is Grand Manan, a small island south of St. George, to be reached by ferry from Black Harbour. Grand Manan is one of the hidden treasures of New Brunswick.
