Between Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick
lies the Bay of Fundy, which connects to the Atlantic Ocean
. The Bay is noteable for a huge tidal fluctuation.
The water level at high tide
can be as much as 16 meters (52.5 feet) higher than at low tide
. High tides happen every 12 hours and 25 minutes (or nearly an hour later each day) because of the changing position of the Moon
in its orbit around the Earth
