The Bay of Fundy (French: Baie de Fundy) is a bay on the Atlantic coast of North America, on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the U.S. state of Maine. Some sources believe the name “Fundy” is a corruption of the French word “Fendu”, meaning “split”, while others believe it comes from the Portuguese funda, meaning “deep”. The Bay of Fundy is known for having the highest tidal range in the world.
Few places on Earth are as awe-inspiring as New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy. A visit to this special place will reward you with magnificent tides, breathtaking coastline and endless adventure.
The Bay of Fundy tides are best explored at The Hopewell Rocks, where you can walk around the famous “flowerpot rocks” at low tide then watch them slowly disappear. And that’s not all – there are plenty of ways to experience the wonder of Fundy. Bike along the Fundy Trail, rappel down craggy cliffs, set up camp at Fundy National Park or head out to sea on a whale-watching excursion. You can even experience a billion years of Earth’s history at Stonehammer Geopark, North America’s first UNESCO supported geopark.
For a true coastal experience, spend a day island-hopping around the Fundy Isles or beachcombing at New River Beach Provincial Park. Discover the secrets of the bay during a guided tour or go off the beaten path to explore the Amazing Places of the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve.
