Head first to New Brunswick and the Bay of Fundy, site of the world’s highest and most dramatic tides and home to Hopewell Rocks, giant sandstone formations carved by years of tidal erosion.

Take a day excursion to explore the charming and historic town of St. Andrews By-the-Sea where you can take an optional whale-watching cruise.

Savor fresh, locally caught lobster at an optional lobster supper. Enjoy a ferry ride back to Nova Scotia, then continue on to Cape Breton Island for a two-night stay in the town of Baddeck. After an orientation tour, visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum with exhibits tracing the achievements of this great inventor who spent the last years of his life on Cape Breton.
