We arrived in Hopewell Cape, on the Bay of Fundy, this afternoon and checked into our hotel. It’s conveniently located only 1.7 kilometres from the Hopewell Rocks.

The Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpots Rocks, is one of the Marine Wonders of the World and is the site of some of the World’s Highest Tides. These rock formations are caused by tidal erosion in The Hopewell Rocks Ocean Tidal Exploration Site and they stand 40–70 feet tall.

The Hopewell Rocks is a place to pause…a place to appreciate a remarkable story interwoven through time, tide, and the intricacies of nature. These are the highest tides in the world. And they happen twice a day….every day.

The interpretive staff at the park (called the Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park) are are very friendly and they are located at key areas to answer any questions you may have. In addition to the opportunity to walk on the ocean’s floor, the park features two sandy beach areas at either end of the park and a number of well-marked walking trails.
