Visitor Information

The Fundy Discovery Aquarium is located at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy and perfectly positioned to access one of the world’s most biologically productive ecosystems. Our tides are the highest in the world, shifting every six hours to transform the landscape all around us, and exposing the intertidal life for us to explore.

Huntsman welcomes nearly 40,000 guests each and every year. Many explorers are day trippers looking to get away from their busy city life while others are vacationers to our beautiful seaside resort community of Saint Andrews by-the-Sea. The Fundy Discovery Aquarium greets most of our guests during the warm summer season but our facility also hosts family and adult activities all year round as we play an integral role within our active community.

Fundy Discovery Aquarium is located at 1 Lower Campus Road, Saint Andrews, NB E5B 2L7 and just a few minutes drive from downtown St. Andrews. Turn off of Highway 127, coming from St. Stephen/Fredericton, onto Marine Science Drive then drive straight, part way down a hill and turn right onto Lower Campus Road (just prior to the gates for entry to the Fisheries & Oceans Canada St. Andrews Biological Station).

Free parking is provided while you visit the Fundy Discovery Aquarium within our own ample parking lot.



General admission provides access to Fundy Discovery Aquarium galleries and exhibits, Crabtree Seal Habitat, Dunn Science Theatre, and outdoor spaces, including beautiful grounds, play area and beach access when our tides allow.

Tickets may be purchased online in advance of your visit.
