Railway Adventures: Ride the Fundy Tide

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy is where the ocean flexes its tidal muscle. This 170 mile long ocean bay stretches between the two Canadian provinces and is home to the Highest Tides in the World. 100 billion tons of seawater flows in and out of the Bay twice daily, creating magnificent tides that reach 16 metres (53 feet), the height of a four-storey building. It takes six hours and 13 minutes for the tides to go from high to low. The amount of water in one tide cycle would fill and then empty the Grand Canyon.
