The quaint fishing village of Alma boasts a variety of fresh seafood shops, a bakery, several gift boutiques, as well as a gas station, liquor outlet, and two small general stores where visitors may purchase groceries and other necessities.
Explore the ocean’s floor on the Alma Beach at low tide and search for shells, marine life and fossils, or if you are really hardy, take a salt water dip.
Go kayaking with Fresh Air Adventures, take a boat tour of the coastline or drop down to the wharf to meet the local fishermen – perhaps you can convince one to bend your ear with tales of adventures on the mighty Fundy tides.
The Alma Fisherman’s wharf is where you can best gain a real appreciation of the Bay of Fundy tides – the highest in the world. At low tide, the fishing boats rest far below the surface of the wharf in cradles on the ocean’s floor; a mere six hours later, they are bobbing at the top of the 15-foot high wharf.
