The Bay of Fundy has some of the highest tidal variation on the planet, something like a 50 vertical ft from high to low tide at some places, leaving boats like these "on the hard" twice a day. With each cycle, 100 billion metric tonnes of water empty and fill out of the bay and actually create a "sloshing" effect like water in a bathtub, rising high on one end and then rushing back to the other. There's also supposed to be a "bore tide" - a surge of tidal water that rises up and over the stationary water to create a wave - a lot like the one we saw in the Turnagain Arm in Alaska a little over a year ago. #lowtide #newbrunswick #bayoffundy #tides #boretide
