Discover Canada: New Brunswick

Saint John 2Continuing with our tour of Canada, the next stop is New Brunswick.  The largest of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces, New Brunswick is located under Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula and beside the State of Maine.  The eastern boundary is entirely coastal – the Gulf of St Lawrence and Northumberland Strait – and dotted with warm, sandy beaches, featuring the warmest salt water north of Virginia.

Hopewell RocksThere are few places on earth that match the awe-inspiring Bay of Fundy.  The tides are the highest in the world, with 100 billion tonnes of seawater moving in and out of the bay twice per day.  The Bay of Fundy tides are best explored at the Hopewell Rocks, where, during low tide, you can walk around the famous “flowerpot rocks” and then watch them disappear as the tide rolls in until just the tops are visible.  The time span between low and high tide is 6 hours and 13 minutes, meaning you can experience both in one day.
