Hopewell Rocks, Walk Into the Bay of Fundy

We loved visiting Hopewell Rocks! Check the official web site for times of low and high tides. It's a 15 minute hike to the water or you can take golf cart down for $2 each way per person.

Hopewell Rocks, Walk Into the Bay of Fundy

This is an utterly spectacular experience. The ocean has created "flower pots" of tiny islands which you can walk around at low tide, or kayak around at high tide. There's a nice cafe and gift shop -- this is a world-class attraction, kept as clean and protected as only Canadians can.
