A Tidal Table, Burntcoat Head Park

An outdoor dining room created by Mother Nature, and erased again each night. The highest tides in the world roll in and out here each day. Forage for an ocean boil-up, an appetizer of what’s to come. Sip Nova Scotia wine and craft beer with a side of sea air. Savour surf and turf from your table on the ocean floor. Rising tides meet the sinking sun. Feel the pull of the moon. Watch the tide climb toward the high-water mark, knowing this place will eventually disappear beneath the briny deep. Tidal secrets, warm memories, and all.

The Wow Factor

Memories for the Making

Uncovering ancient fossils, tiny whelks, baby barnacles and other tidal pool dwellers on a true-life scavenger hunt.

Gives the term “a table with a view” new meaning, especially during the golden hour before sunset, when everything just glows.

Letting the locals show you how it’s done: cracking lobster claws, shucking mussels, doing a clam shooter.

There’s nothing like the ocean to make you feel humble, small and salty — all at the same time.
