The Wanderer’s Experience

Guided beach tours will resume once the Joggins Fossil Centre reopens.

We are generating a guided tour schedule on a day-to-day basis. Please phone the day of an intended visit to see what guided beach tours are available. Our staff can be reached at (902) 251–2727, extension 231, between 10 am and 5 pm daily. Tours are limited to 10 guests at a time.

½-hour guided tour

With careful observation and interpretation, the Wanderer may find their own missing piece of time’s puzzle. As you wander the beach at the spectacular Joggins Fossil Cliffs, remember that every rock holds the possibility of discovery. This experience includes access to our award-winning interpretive centre and a ½-hour guided tour of the Cliffs and/or Gallery.
