Advocate Boat Tours




We will open our doors again in June 2019.



Step on board for an unforgettable boat tour to the most dramatic, awe-inspiring places on the Bay of Fundy with the highest tides in the world.

Advocate Boat Tours is based in Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada, on the upper Bay of Fundy. We are located 3 hrs From Halifax, 2 hrs from Moncton, NB, and 1:20 hrs from Amherst, NS.

We offer high-quality, small and personal adventures, with a maximum of 6 guests. Our tours are best described as scenic boating adventures with wildlife viewing opportunities to Isle Haute.

On days where the wind & weather work against an off-shore tour to Isle Haute, we might offer you our Captain’s choice – a coastal tour along Cape Chignecto Wilderness Park. Check below to learn what some guests experienced on an alternative tour. If you are not interested in an alternative tour when we can’t go to Isle Haute due to weather & wind you can of course reschedule or cancel free of charge.

On TripAdvisor: “My wife and I originally planned to see Cape Split, but high winds forced a change in plans. I’m so glad the plans changed, because the cliffs of Cape Chignecto Park were simply stunning. The colors in the rocks, the impressive heights of the cliffs, and the good company made it the highlight of our Nova Scotia vacation.”

The meeting point for all boat tours will be communicated upon booking. Generally, we will meet at the West Advocate beach ramp in Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia. Please double-check with us or come to our office if unsure about the meeting point.

Advocate Boat Tours is the only tour boat operator on Nova Scotia’s upper Bay of Fundy with the world’s highest tides. 160 billion tons of sea water are flowing through the Bay of Fundy with each tide, equal to four times the estimated flow of all freshwater rivers in the world combined. As the tides of the Bay of Fundy are 10 times the average of the tides in the rest of the world, you might wonder why!  Click here to find out


Boating the high tide at Cape Split.

Your operator and skipper Darcy Snell.

Your host, Darcy Snell, operates a Transport Canada-approved Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) with all the necessary equipment for a safe day of boating. Fully insured and with a certified operator at the helm, you will enjoy a safe voyage on the Bay of Fundy’s largest tides on this earth. Come and explore unique Bay of Fundy places in a safe, personal and informative way.


For muscle-powered trips on the water, we highly recommend NovaShores Sea Kayaking – a local sea kayaking tour company specializing in exploring the rugged Chignecto coast up close. You can paddle through arches and among rock spires, stopping for a picnic on a beautiful isolated beach in the park. Overnight adventures are also available.
