St. Martins Sea Caves, St. Martins

4.6
#3 of 20 in Nature in New Brunswick
Traverse the ocean floor to St. Martins Sea Caves, where you can explore the caves that remain underwater for half a day. Timing of your visit is important, because the tide rises and falls about every six hours in the Bay of Fundy. During high tide, the caves and the paths to them are submerged, but when low tide hits, the pathways reappear and allow adventurous visitors to experience something truly uniqe. Explore inside the red cliffs to look for fish, coral, and erosion marks on the walls. Be sure to wear water shoes to protect your feet from the rocky ground.

    Firstly this is something to do that is free. This is a blessing when travelling. This was very interesting and worth a visit. Go at low tide. Great for all family members.  more »

    Impressive to see briefly, but not too much to do here otherwise. If you're going by the Caves on your way in to the Fundy Trail Parkway and it happens to be low tide, it's worth a quick stop and walk...  more »

    The sea caves were one of my favourite places to visit during my two-week East Coast trip. Make sure to check the weather on the day you actually visit to make sure you arrive in time for low tide. Bring hiking boots/waterproof books if you can and a camera! I visited on a chilly and rainy day and it was still worth every moment!

    Seethe caves, walk on the rocks, and if you're lucky, see a fat lady slip and fall and then she laughs uproariously at her own clumsiness. That was memorable. Food places nearby. Somewhat pricey. Nice scenery.

    Worth seeing if you are in the area. Make sure you check the tide schedule for low tide if you want to walk the caves. Bring boots, you have to cross a small stream.

    Fantastic place to visit at low tide. Bring hiking boots to walk through small wet river and wet sand and over rocks.

    Cool place to see. Access is a bit tricky to actually get to the caves but then again it's part of the fun.
