I also have a pdf version of the Saint John River cruising guide which includes some useful info on shooting the Reversing Falls. If you'd like a copy, drop me a pm.

A other great spot to visit in the Canadian Maritimes is the "Baie des Chaleurs",
The water is really warm and so is wind. It's one of the most beautiful Bays in the world! Almost no trafict in there...When I go out sailing, I usally can't see any other boat out...

Re: Bay of Fundy, Reversing Falls and the St John river

Greetings group,

Thanks for being out there.

I am moving a boat from the Kennebecasis River to Saint Andrews at the end of this week. I would like to get as close to Reversing Falls as possible the night before to move through first thing in the morning. Can someone suggest a suitable anchorage for an Acadian 30, 4'4" draft? How about Mosquito Cove?

I'd PM Whiskey John for a copy of the guidebook, but I am a new member and don't have 15 posts required for a PM.

Many thanks,
Matt

Welcome to SailNet, Matt. He hasn't been here for almost a year so i doubt he'd respond anyway. Have you tried looking at Active Captain for anchorage areas?

We hope to visit in a year or two. We will be going up the Hudson and down the St Lawrence on our way to Newfoundland.

I was on the East coast of Quebec, near Labrador, a few years ago. Mighty nice.
