Saint John, New Brunswick – Vacation Packages
The self-proclaimed, “Greatest Little City in the East”, Saint John area is an incredible region to visit! Located on the eastern coast of Canada, greater Saint John is home to approximately 125,000 people, and is only a 4 hour drive from Halifax, 8 hours from Boston, and 11 hours from New York City. A world-class destination, Saint John is also port of call for many cruise ships, and hosts a variety of festivals and special events throughout the year (including the critically acclaimed Festival By the Sea). As the first incorporated city in Canada, Saint John’s historical and cultural significance in Canada and the Maritimes sparks great interest in many visitors.
Saint John’s location in the center of the Bay Of Fundy also makes it the perfect destination for eco-tourism lovers. At the Bay of Fundy, avid whale-watchers can be rewarded with sights of up to 15 species of toothed and baleen whales. The deep nutrient-rich water also rewards a variety of eager bird species who flock to the area for food. Eleven types of sharks also commonly frequent the Bay, including the strikingly beautiful but dangerous great whites.
