Located between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia
The Bay of Fundy is one of the 7 wonders of North America. The highest tides on earth, the rarest whales in the world, semi-precious minerals and dinosaur fossils.
The powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy have shaped its coastline and exposed fossils from distant periods of our earth’s history. Fossils in Saint John stem back to the first life on the planet.
Drawn by the rich waters flowing from the Bay of Fundy and the resulting abundance of phytoplankton and fish in the area, the whales — such as humpback, minke, sei, and the rare right whale — come to feed and court.

Fun fact: Because of periodic fluctuations in gravitational pulls from the sun and moon, the height of the tides varies from day to day. To really experience the world’s highest tides, you should visit the Bay of Fundy during a full moon cycle.
