Joggins Fossil Cliffs

Planned our visit to this location at low tide to take advantage of the Bay of Fundy views at Joggins Fossils Cliffs.

This is an UNESCO world heritage site, mainly due to the fossils during the “Coal Age” that reveal themselves as the tides pound the cliffs, breaking them apart. You can see seams of coal.

Our trip was during the off-season, so the interpretive centre was closed, but you could still access the ocean floor. It’s important to know when to return, because the cliffs make it impossible to climb out if you get trapped.
