A Taste of History Tour
September 11 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm$55
Join us for A Taste of History on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm.
During this Taste of History Tour, you will not only experience stunning vistas of the
famous Bay of Fundy, but also have the opportunity to learn what life was like during the 1800’s when St. Martins and Big Salmon River supported a world-renowned ship building business and a flourishing lumber industry.
As you tour through Big Salmon River your guide will introduce you to the history told through stories and songs from a lumber jack, a shipbuilder’s daughter, sailors and other personalities from the past who once made this breathtaking land their home.
Before departing you will indulge in an authentic lumberjack’s meal, featuring Maritime delicacies, in a replica heritage cookhouse. Finally you’ll be treated to a classic Saturday evening entertainment of sea-shanties, fiddling, square dancing and toe-tapping melodies that will elevate your mood for your journey back home.
The tour meeting place is Parking Lot #1, where you will board the coach and begin your journey.
