Bay of Fundy Tides
Lighthouses at high or low tide
With so much rugged coastline, our picturesque and numerous lighthouses serve an important navigational and historical purpose. There are 20 lighthouses in the Charlotte Coastal Region. Grand Manan has at least 7 alone! Some lighthouses are open to the public, like the Head Harbour lighthouse on Campobello and some you can explore yourself when the tide is low enough to walk across the ocean floor like Pea Point Lighthouse in Blacks Harbour. Most are still in use, and to this day guide captains away from the dangerous shores.
Driving on the Ocean Floor
Every six hours over 150 billion tons of water flushes in and out of the Bay of Fundy. The 50-foot tidal exchange creates opportunities for a different New Brunswick outdoor adventure. Witness the world-famous tides each day. Wharfs are a great visual reflecting the water coming in or out. Take a walk on the ocean floor or drive across to an island. Ministers Island is a perfect choice!
