Photo of the Week: Low tide on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

Low tide on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

The Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

We captured this week’s travel photo while driving along the coast of New Brunswick from Saint John to St. Martins. The purpose of our day trip from Saint John was to drive along the picturesque Fundy Bay Parkway that is located just east of the famous Sea Caves of St. Martins.

We crossed over an old timber-truss bridge bridge (a wooden covered bridge) and noticed this trio of traditional fishing boats docked at low tide. Each day 160 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle, making it the world’s highest tides.

As you can see from the position of these boats, low tide presents some interesting challenges. In just a few hours, fisherman will be able to walk aboard their docked boats from the top of that pier. Fascinating!
