When is the best time to view the Falls, high tide, or low tide?
Also, same kind of question regarding seeing the beach caves in St. Martins. I assume low tide is best, but how low does the tide need to be? I'll be arriving via cruise ship on October 14, and I have a tide schedule. But, I am a little weak on the interpretation. Below is a cut and past for what I believe is the tide schedulef or Oct. 14. It appears the tide goes out starting around 10 am. But, how low does it need to be to be able to walk to the sea caves, or on the beach, and with regards to Reversing Falls, when is a good time to view?
Also, I've received an email from the company that takes passengers on a boat to the Reversing Falls. The offer both a jet boat experience, and sightseening experience. For sightseeing, the one we could be interested in departs at 2 pm. So, for Oct. 12, at 2 pm, it appears the tide will be low, at about 1.8 and down to 1.3 by 3 pm. With this tide schedule for this date, would there be much action to see at Reversing Falls if we were to take the senic tour. I thing they don't operate the scenic boat during rough water, so maybe there isn't much action at that time of the day. Any thoughts?
Also, I had hoped to rent a car and drive The Fundy Trail, but I've since learned the road closes for the season on October 12. Well, we arrive Oct. 14. Therefore, I would not be able to drive The Fundy Trail afterall, unless I took a tour, and they cost around $120 or more per person. Apparently, tour companies have permission to go on The Fundy Trail. I am still interested in renting a car, and driving to St. Martins, but is there anything you can suggest I might not miss while there?
