Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

The world famous Hopewell rocks is located in Hopewell Cape , New Brunswick and is an amazing place to see the effects of the tremendous tides in the Bay of Fundy.  The tide range here is over forty feet and had carved some fantastic rock formations with the force of the tidal waters.  Not much needs to be said about this area.  The enjoyment is in seeing the results of the tides effect on the rocks.  Perhaps the most famous of these is the flower pots, but there are many others that have also been given names. Perhaps you can find your own favorite names for some of these tide made formations?

Interesting place, pretty near the end of the earth isn't it.

I like the ones with the trees on top. Makes you wonder how long before they might tumble.

Great photos! I can't imagine a 40' tide, but then I've only lived near the ocean when I was in Ireland for 3 yrs.

Had enough trouble when I was on the CGC Point Francis visiting South West Harbor, Maine with a 17 foot tide. Can't imagine how mariners deal with a 40 foot tide! :cO

Oh my gosh, this is an amazing place. I love looking at all your photos. Not sure I could even tear myself away from this place.

I've always wanted to see the Bay of Fundy tides. What a sculpting job they do. Love those tiny little rock arts.

Lovely! I went to New Brunswick (Fredericton) almost 40 years ago, it was very nice. Many of the people there speak French as well.

Super pictures! It is a remarkable place, isn't it? We were there last year and seeing your pictures brought back lots of memories of walking on the ocean floor among these formations. Did you go back the next day to see the same place when it was high tide?
