Passengers will be picked up in Boston in the early morning. We will head north, passing through New Hampshire and Maine on our way to New Brunswick, Canada. There, we will visit the town of St. John, NB and have the chance to take an exciting Jet Boat Ride on the Reversing Falls.
Saint John, NB
Saint John is the largest city in New Brunswick and the second largest city in the maritime provinces. It is known as the Fundy City due to its location on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy at the mouth of the Saint John River.
Where the Saint John River empties into the Bay of Fundy lie a series of rapids known as the Reversing Falls. During high tide, the water in the bay forces the rapids to flow upstream, hence their name.

This unique stretch of road in New Brunswick is home to a convincing optical illusion. Because of the obstruction of the horizon, cars appear to roll up this "magnetic hill," and must accelerate 'down' it.
