Bay Of Fundy, Nova Scotia
About Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia
The Bay of Fundy is located off the northern coast of the US state of Maine, on the northeast edge of the Gulf of Maine, between the Canadian Provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. It is in fact owned by Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and by the Canadian Wildlife Service; it is managed by Ducks Unlimited Canada and the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
The Bay of Fundy is famous for its 50-foot tides - the highest tides in the world - its magnificent cliffs, mud flats, marsh plateaus, and its diverse and abundant ocean wildlife, including several species of whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, seabirds and more.
There are several communities and towns in the area, including St. Andrews, Blacks Harbour and Sackville of the province of New Brunswick, and Amherst, Parrsboro, Truro, Windsor, Wolfville, Annapolis Royal and Digby, and St. John, of the province of Nova Scotia. St. John is, in fact, one of the oldest cities in Canada, and it is the most populous city in the Bay of Fundy.
There is much to do in the Bay of Fundy. For example, take a rafting eco-tourist expedition on the Shubenacadie River (near the town of Turo and in the village of Maitland), or hike to Cape Split - one of Nova Scotia's most celebrated rock formations. Indeed, Fundy is known for the many exhilarating outdoor adventures it has to offer. Enjoy the great golfing, kayaking, rafting, fabulous dining, hospitality and, of course, what are perhaps the most breathtaking cultural and natural attractions in this part of Canada.
