Fundy Tidal Interpretive Centre

The Fundy Tidal Interpretive Centre is now closed for 2020. The Fundy Tidal Interpretive Centre’s observation deck is now closed until further notice. The Municipality is completing a maintenance review over the next few weeks and has blocked off access to the observation deck.

Plan to visit us during your 2021 exploration of East Hants.

The Fundy Tidal Interpretive Centre is a great place to visit during your exploration of East Hants.

There’s plenty of on-site opportunities to learn about the history of the region and the science of the world’s highest recorded tides.
