On the fourth day of Michael’s itinerary, you’ll cross the Bay of Fundy to New Brunswick and head to St. Andrew’s by-the-Sea. This seaside town has been one of Canada’s most popular resort destinations for more than a century. It will also serve as your base to experience another natural wonder of the region. The whales here, just like human visitors, have realized that New Brunswick is an ideal place to spend their summers. You’ll depart from the harbor on a Zodiac craft and get up close with some of the 12 different whale species found in the bay. Among them are humpback and minke whales, while the largest species common in the area, the finback, can reach lengths up to 82 feet. At any one time in the summer, there may be 300 to 400 whales in the bay.
Whatever your interests—the region’s natural beauty, cultural riches, or simply escaping in search of peace and quiet—Michael can create a custom trip. Find inspiration by beginning with his itinerary on AFAR Journeys.
