There just aren’t enough minutes in the hour to experience all of the extraordinary moments that make up a New Brunswick day. From the exhilarating heights of the Bay of Fundy tides, dubbed One of the Marine Wonders of the World, to the magnificent white sand dunes of Bouctouche, New Brunswick is home to some of the most spectacular Natural Wonders in the Maritimes. They are also renowned for lively cities, diverse outdoor adventure and an eclectic blend of cultures. Add a dash of Acadian joie de vivre to the mix and you have the makings of a truly unique Maritime experience.
New Brunswick differs from the other Maritime Provinces both physiographically, and climatologically. Both Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are either wholly or almost completely surrounded by water; oceanic effects, therefore, tend to define their climate, economy, and culture. On the other hand, New Brunswick—although it has a significant seacoast—is sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean proper and has a large interior that is removed from oceanic influences. As a result, the climate tends to be more continental in character rather than maritime and the economy of New Brunswick is based more on the province's river systems rather than its seacoasts.
