Help with itinerary for NS, NB, PEI

Jump to last reply

I will be going to NS, NB and PEI June 15-29. My original plans were as follows:

Day 1: Arrive in Halifax about 7 pm
Day 2: Visit Halifax
Day 3: Drive to Lunenburg via Peggy's Cove.
Day 4: Drive to Annapolis Royal
Day 5: Take ferry to Saint John (leaves Digby 1 pm, arrives SJ 4pm).
Day 6: Visit Saint John (Uptown, Reversing Falls, and possible day trip to either Fredericton or St. Andrews)
Day 7: St. Martins, Fundy NP, Hopewell Rocks, overnight in Moncton.
Day 8: Drive to PEI, overnight in Charlottetown.
Day 9: Visit PEI NP, return to C'town.
Day 10: Drive to Cape Breton Island, Overnight in Baddeck area
Day 11: Drive Cabot Trail (or at least part of it)
Day 12: Finish Cabot Trail, Louisbourg
Day 13: Sherbrooke Village
Day 14: Return to Halifax
Day 15: Fly home in the morning

With this itinerary, I would be passing through Hopewell Cape in the late afternoon, which unfortunately is very close to HIGH tide.

After reading some of the pros and cons of Saint John, and finding out that low tide at Hopewell is about noon time, I am considering spending only 1 night in SJ, and then visiting Hopewell and Fundy NP in a clockwise loop from Moncton. That way, I can get to Hopewell in the a.m. during low tide.

Questions:
1. If I left Moncton in the morning and visited Hopewell Cape and Fundy NP, should I plan to return to Moncton the same evening (late is OK, because there will be lots of sunlight) ... or should I plan to spend a night somewhere near the park, e.g., in Alma?

2. When I drive from SJ to Moncton, is it worth going through St Martins, or should I just take the TCH (in other words, will the scenery at St Martins duplicate that at Fundy and Hopewell)?

Also,
3. When driving from Moncton to PEI via the bridge, is it better to go via Shediac or via Sackville.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
