Experience some of the world's highest tides as you explore a world-class attraction. Travel along the picturesque Fundy coastal drive to the Hopewell Rocks. Your local guide will delight you with both facts and folklore surrounding the Bay of Fundy coastal communities. The Bay of Fundy is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, UNESCO's conservation and sustainable development arm for areas that have terrestrial and coastal marine ecosystems. Pass through Fundy National Park, where you can often spot various birds and even an occasional moose. Then get ready to discover the Hopewell Rocks, an icon of New Brunswick.
These flowerpot rocks were created by the clash of continents, carved by melting glaciers, then sculpted by the highest tides in the world. Interpretation will be delivered to explain how twice daily one hundred billion tons of water creates tides that can rise up to 50 feet. Your tour includes lunch onsite that you can enjoy during your visit to the famous flowerpot rocks. You'll have time to visit the gift shop at Hopewell Rocks before re-boarding your transportation to head back to the ship. En route, enjoy a photo stop at a Bay of Fundy beach in Fundy National Park.
Note: Please note that due to the extreme nature of the Bay of Fundy tides, the stage of the tide cycle during your visit cannot be guaranteed. Guests must be able to walk approximately 500 m over pebbled and wet surfaces, and maneuver approximately 100 stairs.
