We are taking the Caribbean Princess cruise to Canada and New England in September. I'm working on shore excursions and am considering renting a car in Saint John. We've not been there before and I am concerned that the tours offered by Princess will not show me what I'd like to see - visible change in the tide in the Bay of Fundy and local architecture and scenery. We are only docked from 8-5. I've checked the Saint John visitor website but am not captivated by what they have to offer either. Is it best to take a tour in Saint John or travel independently?
I'm also thinking of taking one of the Reverse Rapids jetboats. Has anyone done this? I am 61, my husband 72. We are pretty adventurous and have been on a jetboat, albeit 24 years ago! I thought it was fun then!
