Bay of Fundy - World's Highest Tides
Bay of FundyAnnapolis Royal is located near the shores of the Bay of Fundy where visitors can witness highest tides in the world. The Bay is 270km (170 mile long) and is located between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast at the north end of the Gulf of Maine.

Each day 100 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle more than the combined flow of all the world's freshwater rivers!

The bay was once named Baie Française (French Bay) by explorer/cartographer Samuel de Champlain during a 1604 expedition led by Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Monts which resulted in a failed settlement attempt on St. Croix Island.

Portions of the Bay of Fundy, including the Minas Basin, form one of six Canadian sites in the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, owned by the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Wildlife Service, and is managed in conjunction with Ducks Unlimited Canada and the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

Bay of Fundy is also one of the best places in the world for whale watching which can be found on nearby Digby Neck home to Westport, Nova Scotia, (Brier Island) to Freeport, Nova Scotia, (Long Island), Tiverton, Nova Scotia, Whale watching trips departing from the Neck (the best location in the province to see Humpbacks and Right Whales) is only a one hour drive from the Inn.
