Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy has bragging rights to the Highest Tides in the World!
World’s Highest Recorded Tides
Twice each day the Bay of Fundy fills and empties its 160 billion tons of water creating the highest tides in the world. In 1975 The Guinness Book of World Records listed Burntcoat Head in the Minas Basin, Nova Scotia as the site of the greatest average tide of 47.5 feet with an extreme range of 53.6 feet.
Today we went to Burntcoat Head. This spectacular place has been on my 2016 list of places to visit since our son James was there and photographed this place.
Below are two of James’ photos…
Yes, amazing right?
Today we went!
Well…my pictures weren’t quite like James’ but we had fun at this amazing place!
