Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I see the world’s highest tides?

The world’s highest tides can be seen in the Bay of Fundy — the body of water shared between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Twice a day, 100 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle more than the combined flow of the world’s freshwater rivers!

At their highest, the tides rise to 14 metres, roughly the same height as a four-storey building. Walk on the ocean floor and then six hours later, return to the same spot and kayak around the coast. Both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick offer many spots that you can take advantage of the Bay of Fundy experience.
