Distant enough to be somewhat mysterious, this boat tour will take you to Isle Haute which is not only surrounded by Bay of Fundy tides but by mist, legends and 100-meter-high towering pillars of basalt lava emerging out of the water.
Isle Haute is a rich sanctuary for seabirds and seals and has an appearance that’s anything but ordinary. 300-foottall rockface cliffs and 100-meter-high towering pillars of basalt lava emerge out of the water and are topped with lush forest. Eight kilometers off the coast from Cape Chignecto, Isle Haute is three kilometers long and 400 metres wide. It’s significant culturally, is a National Wildlife Area, and is a geosite within the Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Global Geopark.
If you are lucky enough to travel on a foggy day, the island is known to be looking like it’s floating on the water. Stop at stunning locations, coves, and near the island’s basalt pillars for photo opportunities as you get up close to Isle Haute on this tour. Although visitors cannot go ashore to this National Wildlife Area, this tour of Isle Haute is a once in a lifetime experience that will not soon be forgotten.
On route back, have a full tour of Spencers Island from the water, another significant geosite within the Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Global Geopark.
