In St. George, they take a few things for “granite”…….
Red granite that is.
, nestled around the Fundy basin, is rock solid in its hospitality and natural beauty. Granite Town
Take a wide angle view from the lower bridge of the historic mill and
, the original name for the town. Capture the ebb and flow of river and bay as the waters of the basin meet those of the First Falls . Explore in detail the gorge, watch carefully for osprey overhead or Atlantic salmon manoeuvring the fish ladder. Magaguadavic River
Boasting the highest tides in the world the
Bay of Fundy has been home to generations of fisherman. The shores around St. George are dotted with herring weirs while the town is the centre of the largest aquaculture industry in Charlotte County North America.
Salmon cages merge with herring weirs, lobster traps and scallop drags to form the mainstay of the local economy. From the bounty of the sea, taste the local fare: lobster, scallops, clams, herring, mackerel and Atlantic salmon; all harvested from the cold waters of the
Bay of Fundy.
Experience canoeing and kayaking on the river, the lake or in the basin. Cast for bass on the famed Magaguadavic or try your hand at trout fishing in the streams or nearby
. Pan the lake for a siting of the famed “Lake Utopia Monster”. Lake Utopia
