Good place to see Bay of Fundy tides in Nova Scotia?

I'm planning a trip to NS in Sep and would like some guidance as to a good place to see the Bay of Fundy tide change in NS. Don't want to take the time to drive to Fundy NP in NB. Have found a NS provincial park, Burntcoat, which is on Cobequid Bay west of Maitland. Has anyone been there? I also wondering if it's possible to time a drive to see a low tide in one spot and then later a high tide in another or does that defeat the purpose of appreciating the difference? Any recommendations for accomodation (we're not campers) where you can see the tide change? Thanks.

Here is the video from Burncoat. Judge for yourself.

Perhaps this website will answer your questions. http://www.centralnovascotia.com/index.php
Type in your dates of travel and you will see when high and low tides occur in the places you wish.
I have not been to Burncoat Park.
