One hundred billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy twice a day bringing with it an amazing array of currents, waves, swells, rip-currents, whirlpools and up to class four whitewater rapids. Unlike the open Atlantic Ocean side of Nova Scotia where the tides occur twice every 24 hours and at a more or less constant range or height (4 to 8 feet), the unique configuration of the Bay of Fundy (funnel shaped and great depth) results in the tidal waters moving in and out of the bay in a rocking motion (think of a wave in a bathtub) producing a significantly higher tidal height particularly when it reaches the head of the Bay.

Nancy did an amazing job helping plan and set up my trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming with my brother. She planned everything from flights, transfers and accommodations. It was completely stress free…
