Horseback Tidal Floor & Fossil Tour


Giddyup! On this Bay of Fundy ocean-floor tour by horseback, you will be guided to a famous fossil site where you’ll see the highest tides in the world revealing 200 million year old fossils. 

Meet us at our Ranch and be greeted by Spirit Reins guides and the horses, then we will ride to Wasson Bluff. This is the famous fossil site where 200 million year old dinosaur fossils were discovered! You will begin your ride on the beach at the protected fossil site where geologists and palaeontologists may be actively digging! We will schedule your ride at low tide and you can ride your horse along the floor of the Minas Basin observing a variety of tidal creatures such as clams, crabs, shorebirds and more! Take in the view of Two Islands and Five Islands as you cross Swan Creek Cove. Here you will take a snack break under the fossil cliffs while your horses rest. Enjoy the spectacular views of the Minas Basin and take pictures to your heart’s delight!
