Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick

At the beginning of May, the area of Hopewell Rocks is not officially opened for the season for visits. But it was clear from the cars parked outside of the gated park that we were not the only ones who decided to come visit off-season. Now, there are perks and cons to this. The biggest con – since it’s not open, you have to get around the area in less-than-convenient ways. For us, this involved walking the long way around, climbing over fences and stairs, and making our way towards the ocean floor.

In that sense, Hopewell Rocks did not disappoint. Perhaps because we felt like it was more like an adventure, we enjoyed and appreciated it a lot more. And as opposed to coming during tourist season, the area was deserted aside from a few people we saw every so often so we got the run of the ocean floor to ourselves.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hopewell Rocks, they are these rock formations on the ocean floor that you can explore around when it’s low tide. Usually this area, during high tide, is covered by the ocean water. At that time, you could rent kayaks and explore it like that – which would actually be really cool if I ever decide to come back during tourist season.

It was fascinating to walk around here and it was hard to believe just how big these rocks are until you’re standing right beside them.
