What parts of the world have the strongest tides?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Bay of Fundy, located in Nova Scotia, has the highest tides in the world. The bay fills and empties 100 billion tons of water twice a day, every day. The height of the tide varies throughout the day, ranging from 11 feet (3.5 meters) to 53 feet (16 meters). The force of the tide is equal to that of 8000 locomotives or 25 million horses. The tides are so strong that they have even created cliffs and sea stacks on the Bay’s shore. The average tidal range of the world’s oceans is a mere 3 feet (1 meter), surely making the Bay of Fundy a site of the world’s highest tides.
