Saint John New Brunswick

August 24, 2009

Saint John is a port of call on many Canada and New England cruises.

Located at the mouth of the St. John River and on the Bay of Fundy, St. John is the largest city in New Brunswick. Due to its location and having a harbor free of ice during the winter, St. John became an important port city. Much of the cityâ??s history and economy revolves around shipbuilding, fishing and trade.

Today, visitors can experience the history of St. John by visiting The New Brunswick Museum which exhibits the cityâ??s history of shipbuilding. In addition, many visitors stop at the â??Reversing Falls,â?? set at the mouth of the St. John River. Due to strong tidal fluctuations, the flow of the river is reversed and the riverâ??s current flows upstream for several miles.
