The movement of the tide over 4 hours was shocking. We could walk on the floor of the ocean next to walls of seaweed and rock formations that boggle the mind. Make sure you arrive at high tide or low tide so you can get the total effect as the rise and fall will surprise you and the topography will... More

We were fortunate to have a park interpreter answer our many questions. We learned a great deal. The admission is for two days. We are going back today.

It was only ten bucks per adult and well worth it. You can return a second day with that ticket!! We didn't get to see the high tides unfortunately because we had to go the next day. There's a big parking lot. They offer shuttles down to the tide area but we didn't need it. There's a gift shop with... More

We called ahead to ask about tide times because the tide schedule wasn't that clear on their website. Got there around 3:30pm, and parked in the parking lot. We weren't told about the parking lot closing at 5pm and there are no signs indicating this anywhere. Didn't find out about it until we were down on the shore and at... More

Great location at low tide, a bit of a walk and a climb down stairs, but worth the effort. If this was anywhere else, they would be charging admission, it is free. Great job NB in leaving this free to view.

I went to Hopewell Rocks and was surprised how interesting it was! I'm glad someone at breakfast recommended it. We watched the high tide and had a lovely walk in the woods.

It was a good experience for us, witnessing the high tide and then low tide within the same day. We could walk into the base of the sea! A must to visit! And stay for both high and low tides!

Too amazing for words! We enjoyed the shady path down to the rocks. The tide had just started going out and we were surprised at how quickly the water moved out. An interpretive ranger answered our questions and showed us many cool things. I loved it!

This excursion exceeded my expectations. Friendly, helpful staff from beginning to end. The tide was way out and it was almost closing time which they made us aware we could stay later, just had to park outside gate. The walk around the rocks was very interesting and something worth seeing - thoroughly enjoyed it!
