Observe the gradual rise or fall of the Bay of Fundy tides, an average change of 6 to 8 feet per hour. The Fundy Tides are the highest on earth and rise and fall an astounding 50 feet. Twice each day one-hundred-billion tons of water flow into the Bay of Fundy. This creates the phenomenal Fundy Tides, which overpower the rivers flowing into the Bay of Fundy and reverse their direction two times a day. Next, travel over the 8 mile Confederation Bridge to the picturesque province of Prince Edward Island. Pass over gently rolling farmlands en route to Prince Edward Island National Seashore.
