The highest tides in the world
A popular destination in New Brunswick, the Hopewell Rocks are sandstone rock formations topped with trees. Open to visitors between May and October, this is where the world’s highest tides can be seen. It is advised to keep track of the tide schedule upon your visit to experience the low as well as the high tide. During low tide, visitors can walk on the exposed ocean floor and get close to the rock formations. In contrast, approximately six hours later, at high tide, visitors will notice the same rock formations peek above the surface.
