"My children never had to have toys to play with at the cottage, they had a whole playground in front of them. Who else gets to have a starfish for a pet? We would watch the sunsets and the golden highway that was created and imagine ourselves walking across the Bay. It is a magnificent body of water. The Bay of Fundy is a part of me."
"The Bay of Fundy because of the tremendous tides and the natural features they create - the walks on the ocean floor where sandy beaches are exposed each day; the cliffs that offer adventure and danger; the mud flats where hundreds of thousands of shorebirds feed during their migration; the marshes where ducks and herons feed; and, the breathtaking views."
"Cubic miles of water moving every 6 hours; at least 5 species of whales; awe-inspiring coastlines; the incomparable Fundy Isles; thousands and thousands of plovers; historical lighthouses... it's a wonder and a destination all by itself!!"
"Canada is all about natural beauty and the BAY OF FUNDY has it all...a pristine environment, the largest tides in the world, the summer NURSERY, and several species of whales that welcome you to their world with a curiosity and calmness that is almost spiritual."
"My oh my, there is not enough space on the internet to explain why the Bay of Fundy should be nominated. The world's highest tides. The Rocks. The vistas. Cape Enrage. Fundy National Park. The Fundy Foot Trail. The Fundy Parkway. Adair's lodge. The biking, walking, driving, ATV'ing and snowmobiling trails. Good grief you''d have to see it to believe it."
"A foot every 10 minutes. You can literally stand there and watch the tide rise or fall. When you combine this with an absolutely incredible variety of seabirds, shorebirds, fish, shellfish, whales, porpoises, seals and other fantastic creatures there can be no doubt that the Bay of Fundy is one of this planet's wonders. Seeing it once is seldom enough for anyone."
"The Bay of Fundy is fascinating, unique, grand and beautiful. The rock formations all round the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick shorelines are amazing. It has some of the best whale watching in the world, dinosaur sites, kayaking, semi-precious stones, hundreds miles of awe-inspiring hiking, tidal bores, bird colonies and it is still relatively pristine."
