The Bay of Fundy is a bay on the Atlantic coast known for having the highest tidal range in the world. It is located on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine, between Canada and the United States. It had its first permanent settlement in the beginning of the 17th century.
Why it is special: The Bay is formed in such a way that several rivers flow into it. The tidal range in the Bay causes many weird phenomena to occur. Some of these include tidal bores, reverse falls where strong rapids flow upriver during high tide and mud flat deposits among others.
