Province of New Brunswick Warnings and Dangers

  • Beware the Ca$hle$$ Bank

    I discovered something new and not altogether exciting in the world of banking on my visit to New Brunswick.I went into an RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) branch near Fredericton, as we were driving towards Nova Scotia. My intention was to change some American cash into Canadian money. I walked in and spoke to the teller, explaining what I'd hoped to...

  • Black bears inhabit the entire Province

    When I returned to work after the biking trip Russ and I had made to Kouchibouguac National Park, I mentioned to one of the guys at the Office what a great time we had. As a result, he headed off there with his family the following weekend! They too had a very enjoyable experience in this National Park, including using the rental service for a...

  • Stinging Jellyfish

    You will find much warmer waters along New Brunswick's east coast (Gulf of St. Lawrence/Northumberland Strait) and possibly even on the north coast (Bay of Chaleur). However, one thing that does sometimes distract from full enjoyment of the waters along these coasts are the large numbers of jellyfish! The ones Sue and I saw at Kouchibouguac...

  • Ice-cold seawater

    Make no mistake, the water in the Bay of Fundy is COLD, with a peak summer temperature of 8 or 9 C. This is because the Arctic current flowing south along the coast of Labrador and Newfoundland meets the warm Gulf Stream flowing up along the US eastern seaboard. The result is that the Gulf Stream is deflected across the Atlantic Ocean to warm the...

  • Cold and snowy winter months

    Canada has a reputation for its cold and snowy winters, but from my experience I don't think that things are as severe as they used to be. Even so, New Brunswick does not completely escape the cold and frozen months of December to April. This view of my snowshoe tracks across a frozen Beaver pond was taken in late-January, 2007 as I simply took off...

  • Rapid tidal changes in water levels

    Although the Bay of Fundy tides can vary by more than 50-ft (15-m) between the high and low levels at the upper end of the bay, the normal variations at the mouth of the bay are closer to 23 feet. It takes about 12.5 hours for the gravitational cycles of the Moon and the characteristic North Atlantic Ocean oscillations to cause successive Low tides...

  • Mud Monsters

    When exploring the ocean floor at the Hopewell Rocks beware of the many mud monsters you will be sure to encounter, AKA children whose parents don't care what they do. They will splash in the mud, stomp in the mud, throw the mud....DUCK! Just steer clear.

  • "the provincial bird" AKA the mosquito!

    One downfall to exploring New Brunswick is the HUGE amount of nasty, hungry mosquitos, also known as "the provincial bird" (or so some postcards claimed) Bring LOTS of bug repellant and keep reapplying. Despite doing this I got eaten alive.

  • Police checkstops

    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and local police forces routinely conduct Checkstop Programs at randomly-selected locations throughout the province, at any time of the day or night.Depending on the amount of traffic, you may be delayed for several minutes getting thru these Checkstop programs.They are checking to ensure that you have a valid...

  • Moose Xing!

    Drive carefully, especially at dawn and dusk. Lots of critters use this time to wander out onto the roadways. Not only can hitting a moose be fatal for the moose, but it could be fatal for you, please use caution.

  • Mosquitos, Black Flies, Horse Flies

    Mosquitos are sometimes jokingly referred to as New Brunswick's provincial bird !Like many places, Mosquitos and Black Flies can be quite a nuisance from Spring to the first half of the Summer, depending on how much rainfall we get. Horse Flies can be a nuisance on the beaches. So, pick up a can of insect repellant, especially if you're planning to...

  • watch the tides....

    The tides in the Bay of Fundy are reputed to be the biggest in the world at 50 feet. If you are planning on strolling along a beach, you have to check and see if the tides are going out or in and just what time high tide is. You could be walking along a huge beach and soon find it no longer in existence. It is amazing just how fast the water comes...
