And, Rick Mercer also went whale watching off the coast of St Andrews with Canadian opera singer, Measha Brueggergosman. It was a spectacular day for whale sightings on our Bay! Any, by the way, there are over 12 species of whales who call the Bay of Fundy home between May and December. Bay of Fundy whale watching tours take place from Campobello Island, Grand Manan & St Andrews in New Brunswick and from Digby Neck, Long Island and Brier Island in Nova Scotia.
So here I was on the Bay of Fundy, minding my own business, when I realized that normal people don't get to see 100 billion tonnes of seawater flowing back and forth in front of their kitchen windows every day. As someone who has grown up living and working here, I've taken it upon myself to blog my experiences with the highest tides on the planet.
