We are starting to gather stuff for our trip into the Maritime Provinces. We really appreciate all the great advice. Definitely going to Prince Edward Island.

We are planning on packing some warm clothes as friends have warned us that even Aug can be cold. And, I can set the GPS to KPH vs MPH.

Last question. Am I limited as to what food and alcohol I can bring into Canada? The. Customs info on the internet seemed to say no fresh veggies and just a little alcohol but plenty of beef?

Looking forward to our trip

Bill

There are limits on food, alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. The Canadian customs site provides the detailed amounts and descriptions; Google Canadian Customs and then look for sections dealing with visitors to Canada.

If you are not using a GPS to convert speed, you can locate a conversion chart on the internet. It converts from KPH to MPH in chart form. I kept the chart on ,my dashboard and referred to it when a mileage sign was displayed. Also drove the entire perimeter of the Gaspe Peninsula and enjoyed every part of it.

Keep your firearms home, bring 40 oz booze per adult or 24 cans of beer ( Canadian beer is better though), 200 cigs I think. Bring lots of money, we like American money and multiply the posted km/hr by 0.6 to get MPH and you're good to go cruising.

tidal bore

The tidal bore is definitely not in Saint John.
It is in Moncton.

I think the tidal bore is actually in Saint John. I've watched it a few times from the restaurant overlooking the river.

Actually you are both right, you can watch a tidal bore in both locations. The Bay of Fundy has some of the highest tides in the world causing tidal bores at many locations along its shores
