Bay Of Fundy High Tides And Estate Wine Tour

Overview



Wine and lobster, tides and valley views...this tour encompasses the best of Halifax.

An adventure through the lands of the French Acadian farmland awaits you. This tour is a blend of history and a chance to view the evidence of the highest tides in the world and sample the bountiful harvest of the Annapolis Valley.

After meeting you at the pier, we will make our way to the first stop of the day in the town of Windsor, originally known as Pisiquid, to view the tidal flats. One of the principal reasons Windsor was settled by the British was to monitor the Acadians in Grand Pré. This is a very cool area and you'll learn all about the history.

Next, we will continue on through the heart of Annapolis farmland all the way to the Lookoff. From here, you can see most of the Annapolis Valley floor--an amazing sight!

On the Fundy side of the North Mountain is Hall’s Harbor. This small fishing village is one of the best places to see the evidence of the highest recorded tides in the world. At low tide, the wharf is high and dry while fishing boats wait patiently on the harbor bottom for the tide to rise and take them out to sea again.

You will have time to explore the area and then we'll enjoy a fresh 1.25 pound lobster lunch at the Lobster Pound (included) with choice of potato, roll, coleslaw, tea, coffee or soft drink, plus a yummy dessert!

After lunch, we'll continue to the Gaspereau Winery, on the south side of South Mountain. This is one of the younger wineries in the Annapolis valley. Known as a boutique winery, it is set on the slopes of Gaspereau Valley and creates premium estate-grown and limited edition wines that reflect the care and passion of the owners. Here, you will have time to taste a number of these wines, plus a premium tasting (included).

Later, back to the pier.
