Joggins Fossil Tours:
We are open for the 2019 season!
Welcome to the world famous Joggins fossil cliffs, the ONLY natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Maritimes! Joggins is a small community with a wealth of geological history! Travel back in time to 315 million years ago as you explore the beautiful fossil cliffs. Learn about the first geologists who visted Joggins in the early 1800s and discover why Joggins is one of the most important fossil sites in the world! With the tumultuous ebb and flow of the tides, each day tells a different story as new fossils are continuously revealed. Learn what geologists and paleontologists are looking for when they visit the cliffs and gain insider knowledge of the latest and greatest fossil discoveries at the site. Maybe the next new fossil find will be made by YOU!
Your Tour Guide:
Brian Hebert, a Tourism Certified Professional, grew up in the "suburbs" of Joggins and has had an eye for fossils since he was a young boy. He could be found on the beach every day searching the cliffs for new discoveries. He has impressed several geologists he’s met along the cliffs and continues to work with many of them on research projects to this day.
Brian not only holds the highest level of recognition as a Heritage Interpreter after achieving his National Certification provided by Nova Scotia's Tourism Professionals, he was also honoured to be asked to give a personal tour to the UNESCO Scientific Advisory Committee which led to Joggins being selected as one of the few fossil localities on the UN's World Heritage Site List.
