World's Highest Tides

Sea Captains' Burial Ground

Follow the Sea Captains' Burial Ground Footpath on the Fundy Trail and you'll find your way to two family burial grounds. The Fownes and Melvin families were some of the original settlers in this area. They were both big shipbuilding families with captains who sailed all around the world - including Europe, India, Africa, Australia, and the Pacific coast of the United States. More than 45 are buried in the two restored cemeteries. If you do the loop, it's about a 1km hike.

Long Beach

Just a short drive away!

If you're looking to experience more of the legendary Bay of Fundy tides, look no further than Long Beach. At low tide, this beach expands far and wide, exposing two and a half kilometres (1 .5 miles) of shoreline and ocean floor.
