Daily Daydream: Bay of Fundy, Canada

Canada’s Bay of Fundy has the world’s highest tides (around 50 feet). The best way to experience the high tides? Take a boat ride out to the Reversing Falls in Saint John, where natural rapids are created by the incoming tides. Or, just visit the the same spot at both high and low tide to see the drastic difference.

Anyone who gets depressed by traditional aquariums will love the Fundy Aquarium Ecozone. Nicknamed an “aquarium without walls,” whales, dolphins, seals, and many other creatures live in this area. Take a whale-watching boat tour for a chance to see a Humpback!

Although the Bay of Fundy isn’t what comes to mind when you think of wine regions, it hosts a number of wineries. Be sure to check out Waterside Winery, which makes wild blueberry wine!

Where is it? On the Atlantic Coast, between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, Canada.

Where to stay? One of the best places to experience the tides is Hopewell Rocks, so stay nearby at the Artisan Suites, a four-star option that’s just over a mile away.

What else should I know? Winters at the Bay of Fundy can get cold (with temperatures around 14 degrees) and snowy.

Who’s it for? Aspiring marine biologists, nature-lovers, rapid riders.
