1½-hour guided tour

Examine the finest example in the world of life in the Coal Age as it is preserved in stone in the sea cliffs of Joggins. This 1½-hour tour, led by a knowledgeable interpreter, provides the Explorer an opportunity to see into the magnificently exposed layers of rock that reveal the world's most complete fossil record of life 300 million years ago, when lush forests covered Joggins and much of the world’s tropics.
