Cape Enrage

Cape Enrage Interpretive Centre Inc. The Bay of Fundy is one of the Marine Wonders of the World with tides rising as much as 16.3 m (53 vertical feet) over a 12-hour period twice each day.

Cape Enrage offers one of the most spectacular views of the natural phenomenon from its towering cliffs and has been a light station and fog alarm since 1838; the current light tower is over 140 years old. We are proudly part of the Fundy Biosphere Reserve and the Fundy Coastal Drive Experience. 

Village of St. Martins

Once a shipbuilding centre, this gateway to The Fundy Trail is famous for its red cliffs, echo caves and birdwatching activities. 

This is a lovely seaside community whose daily rhythms are guided by the rising and falling of the World’s Highest Tides. At high water, the colourful fishing boats bob in the water in the village harbour. Once the tide recedes, those same boats sit in the mud on the ocean floor! 

The harbour is tremendously photogenic. It’s encircled by two covered bridges, a lighthouse and public gardens.
