Fundy and Hopewell Parks, New Brunswick

Dramatic tides have made the Bay of Fundy one of the marine wonders of the world. The tides surge up to 15 metres high at the mouth of the Petitcodiac River in New Brunswick. At low tide you can walk on the ocean floor and explore The Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park where top heavy rocks capped by balsam fir and dwarf black spruce resemble huge flowerpots and become small islands at high tide. Nearby, Fundy National Park is a showcase for the Bay’s dramatic tides and coastal terrain and for the variety of shrubs and waterfalls under the forest canopy which provide an excellent habitat for wildlife species. We set off in search of white tail deer. For more information check out episode 30 in the Railway Adventures category.
