Fundy Footpath

THE FUNDY LOOK OUT

The rugged geology and natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy wilderness was the inspiration for the creation of the 41-km (25-mi.) Fundy Footpath, whose unique ecosystem can only be appreciated on foot, in the ambience of the Bay of Fundy microclimate.

General FAQs

Is it wavy/dangerous/scary?


We always use double kayaks that are more stable than single kayaks. While the Bay of Fundy can provide some extreme conditions, we ensure our guest's safety by keeping them informed on the weather. If our Lead Guide(s) say it is too wavy or windy, we work to tell everyone with lots of time in advance, so alternative plans can be made.

What's the weather like?


Coastal New Brunswick enjoys a mild climate in the summers, with an average daily high in the mid-60s. In August, the highs can reach the upper 70s, while the lows at night are in the mid-50s. As with any coastal region, wind and rain are always a possibility, along with Atlantic fog. Be sure to bring layers for both warmth and protection against rain.
