Photographer's Note

This is the Hopewell Rocks Tidal Exploration Site in the bay of fundy in New-Brunswick

Tides are amongs the highest in the world and range from 32' to 46'. (10 to 14 meters)

It is the gravitational pull of the moon and the unique shape of the Bay that combine to create tides that high. You'll be truly amazed at how fast that water rises!

At low tide, you can explore the natural rock flowerpots, tunnels and caverns sculpted from geological formations millions of years older than the Canadian Rockies.

As the tide turns and starts to flow once more, it can rise between 6 and 8 vertical feet per hour!

The Bay of Fundy is extraordinary not only for the power of her tides and the spectacular beauty of her coastline, but for the diverse eco-systems within and around her shores.

Thank you for your comment on the photo.
