The Bay of Fundy located between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick is known for the world’s highest tides.
Low tide and high tide in the Bay of Fundy can be watched particularly well at Maitland nearby Truro. The highest tides of all times with 21 m was measured here. Depending on lunar phases and the seasons the tides during our visit was at about 14 m.
At low tide, the landscape is wide and open; high tide pushes the sea further into the bay. The changes of the landscape in a very short time is really amazing and this happens twice a day.
In the video we show several times the same stretch of coastline twice; once at low tide and once at high tide.
At high tides it is popular to do rafting in the onrushing wave. The sunset’s spectacular play of colours can be best viewed from the water.
We find a cozy accommodation in Captain Douglas House. The friendly family house is a heritage designated property built in 1860, by a sea captain named Captain William Douglas.
For the first time we make the acquaintance to the Canadian mosquito in Maitland which has spared us on our trip through eastern Canada till now.
