Welcome to the Bay of Fundy, one of the seven natural wonders of North America
Fundy Discovery Site is one of the most convenient and accessible places to experience the incredible tidal phenomena of Canada’s Bay of Fundy – home to the highest tides on Earth!
A tidal bore occurs here on the Salmon River near Truro, Nova Scotia twice daily at predicted times offering a natural demonstration of the extremity of Fundy’s renowned tides.
Located just 65km from the Halifax International Airport the Fundy Discovery Site is a central orientation site for visitors to the Bay of Fundy – a place to gather, learn about, and enjoy this diverse tidal landscape and special part of the world.
Talk to friendly staff at the visitor centre to get tidal bore and tide times along with information on area attractions. Stop for a picnic, washroom break, or stretch your legs by walking or cycling the nearby Cobequid Trail. Have fun with the kids on the natural playground or finish your day with a tranquil view and extraordinary sunset.
