Your tour begins with a scenic drive to Fallsview Park, where the mighty Saint John River meets the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy, creating the renowned Reversing Rapids.

Stop at the harbor and witness the effects of the extreme high and low tides of the Bay of Fundy. This area is a favorite with artists, with its lighthouse, lobster traps and fishing boats creating a charming scene. Photographers also delight in the scene of the lighthouse and twin covered bridges with the ocean for a backdrop.

Visit the beach, where time and tides have carved echoing caves in the sandstone cliffs. Enjoy a walk along the sand and some seafood chowder at the beach restaurant.

Less than an hour away from Saint John, perched on the shores of the Bay of Fundy, is the picturesque fishing village of St Martins, a beautiful window through which to take a peek at life in New Brunswick. It is also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. During the scenic drive to St Martins, your local guide will entertain you with fascinating folklore about the village, including tales of the thriving shipbuilding era.

Return to Saint John for a visit to the bustling Old City Market -- a National Historic Site in the heart of the town.

Notes:

The sea caves are only accessible at low tide, but can be viewed from the beach at any time. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
