Hopewell Rocks - New Brunswick - Canada

The Hopewell Rocks, also known as Flowerpot Rocks, are located at Hopewell Cape near Moncton, the second largest city in New Brunswick, Canada.



According to the Guinness Book of Records (1975), the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world and the tidal erosion created the Hopewell Rocks.

At the Hopewell Rocks, the extent of the tidal is recognizable particularly well. The Hopewell Rocks are located in the northern foothills of the Bay of Fundy, called Chignecto Bay. The bay is up to the 15 km wide and at low tide, the water pulls out of the bay to a large extent. During that time one can stroll over the seabed between the elevations which look like mushrooms; during high tide the rocks transform into islands.
