Of course it is quite spectacular, but you have be sure to visit when the tide is out. With the highest tides in the world, tide in means no caves to visit and tide out means you go right in. But there is great sea find locally so be sure to time it for a meal.

Plan to spend the day in order to experience the caves at both high tide and at low tide. At high tide you can walk the beach for a bit and then go up the road to the top of the caves and hike around there, viewing the caves down below. Enjoy a cup of chowder while waiting for the... More

Didnt have a chance to go inside and explore the cave but the view is amazing and is the highest tide in the world.

First of all, the sea caves are spectacular!! We visited April 17, 2017 and while a bit chilly (mid-30's F) it was very enjoyable, definitely worth the trip off of the beaten path. There were only 2 other couples on the rocky beach. Onto the tides... I scoured the Internet and couldn't find anything about at what tide level all... More

We showed up on a nice spring day (snow storm about a week ago). Very nice area with a nice rocky beach. But due to the high flow of water flowing into the bay from the land we could not access the caves even at low tide. Wish we brought our galoshes to walk across the flowing water. But either...

Visited in March 2017, stopped on the way to walk on the Fundy trail. Loved the rocks and the cave, it is better than the pictures reveal. we did get wet shoes crossing before the tide had completely gone out. We were disappointed that the local restaurants were closed because we had heard good reviews, and had to eat cookies... More

If you arrive at low tide, you can walk out over the sea floor and into the caves, which have been created by wave action. It's an easy walk and well worth it. Unique attraction. Come back when the tide is in and it looks completely different.

This opportunity to travel to and explore the sea caves and walk the beach was amazing. It is important to time your trip with the low tide table to walk to the caves. Bring rubber boots because there is a shallow river to cross. There is plenty of beach to walk and collect sea glass and shells.

We drove here from Saint John's after arriving on a cruise ship. You need to check the tide charts to ensure you will get to walk out to the caves. We ate lunch first at the Caves restaurant, a must do as well. There is a small creek that runs in front of the caves even when the tide is... More

The sea caves were a stop on one of our shore excursions on our cruise. It took awhile to get to St. Martins, but it was beautiful once we got here. Some people even kayaked out into the caves! Our guide told us to look for wishing stones that have a white ring around them, and we found several. There... More
