Bay of Fundy

Did you know that over 160 billion tonnes of water move in and out of the Bay of Fundy, every day, twice a day?  That’s more than the combined flow of all the freshwater rivers on our planet. It’s also home to the highest recorded tides in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. A visit to Nova Scotia is not complete without seeing this remarkable phenomenon and the unique seascape it has created.
