Bubbling Tides Beach Tour


A Family-Friendly Guided Walking Tour of Partridge Island

Join expert guides from the Fundy Geological Museum for a walking tour to enchanting Wa’so’q (Partridge Island). As you walk along the breezy beach, learn the early history of Parrsboro and the historic Ottawa House By-The-Sea Museum while taking in the scenery. Tours are timed to coincide with the “bubbling tide” phenomena, the only known event of its kind in the world. You will have opportunities to identify the many varieties of rocks and mineral beneath your feet with the help of your guide – with a little luck, you may spot a sparkling gem! This is a great family activity.
