Things to do

Whales and Wildlife

Each year, an impressive array of whales come to feed, have babies and play in the Bay of Fundy. Watch in awe as these gentle giants breach, roll and gracefully sink below the ocean’s surface. Embark on your whale watching boat tour from our incredible downtown wharf.

Visit Ministers Island

As a National Historic District, St. Andrews is filled with rich history. The incredible summer home of Canadian Pacific Railway President Sir William Van Horne, on Ministers Island is a sight to be seen. At low tide, venture over to the island and surround yourself with the rich history while taking in the beauty of St. Andrews from afar.

Golf the World-Renowned Algonquin Golf Course

The views, the ocean breeze and a challenging game. For over a century golfers have travelled to the Algonquin Golf Course to test their skill and take in the view. Ranked among Canada’s top 100 courses, this course is home to two of the top ten golf tees in Canada.
