Bay of Fundy

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Nova Scotia holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

With its forever rising and falling waters, this 170-mile-long bay is famous for having the highest tidal range in the world.

The Fundy tide can reach as high as 15 metres, bringing unique experiences like tidal bore rafting, when the Shubenacadie River comes alive with waves and rapids twice a day with the incoming tide.

The best place to explore the tides is The Hopewell Rocks, where you can walk along the famous 'flowerpot rocks' at low tide before seeing them disappear. Or, cycle along the Fundy Trail before setting up camp at Fundy National Park for a true experience with nature. 

One of the best experiences when visiting the Bay of Fundy is whale watching; take to the sea at highest tide and meet the whales of Fundy. Best seen in the cooler months, Humpback whales are the stars of the show, growing up to 18 metres in length and weighing up to 50 tonnes. You might even get to spot the rare Finback whale, or the North Atlantic Right whale, both of which tend to surface in the bay between September and October.
