St. Martins Sea Caves, St. Martins

#2 of 6 in Things to do in St. Martins
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a St. Martins trip simple and quick.

  • Must See, at Low tide you can walk the beach and go inside the caves but wear good footwear rocks are big slippery and to get to cave you have to cross a brook. Magical  more »

  • This was supposed to be the highlight of our day-long tour when our ship was in port but the tides didn't cooperate so we couldn't walk the ocean floor as promised and just gazed from afar at the cave...  more »

  • This is a very scenic and quiet paradise on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. Tides cover a large portion of the ocean floor and the entrance to several large caves, but when the tide retreats a vast expanse of rocky ocean floor is accessible and with some mud shoes or boots one can explore the inside of the ocean caves and shoreline. If you like ocean shores you can walk for miles on the ocean bottom, but be aware of the tides which can return quickly and block access to the dry land. Beside the beach is a one of the best seafood restaurants in New Brunswick called The Caves!! You just have to try it once and you will be back again and again!!
  • Here's the thing about the sea caves - yes they are cool but I think you need to manage your expectations. I thought you'd be able to walk into them for many many many metres but the reality was it was about 30-40 ft deep. It's neat to stop in and see if you're on your way, but I'm not sure I'd make a special stop just to go. A coolness of nature nonetheless!
  • This is definitely a good place to visit, even if you are not a tourist! You can easily spend a few hours exploring the beach and caves with your family and then have something to eat at one of the restaurants, or continue on to explore the Fundy Trail a few kilometers up the road.
  • Cool to see but a little underwhelming to be honest I'm not sure if id plan a whole day around it. Buts its definitely worth the visit
  • *Make sure to check when low tide is and high tide!!!* Great, just great. A sight to see, walking the caves at low tide and seeing/kayaking at high tide is a must. Definitely worth the stop. *MAKE SURE TO CHECK WHEN LOW AND HIGH TIDE IS, TIME CHANGES EVERYDAY* can't stress enough but it is beautiful at the cave and in St Martin's.
