Fundy's Cape Enrage
Cape Enrage is a New Brunswick Top Attraction, located along the Bay of Fundy Coastal Route (which the two RV Gypsies drove earlier). Cape Enrage is an island called Barn Marsh Island and is connected to the mainland by a beachhead along which a road has been constructed. It is separated from the mainland by Barn Marsh Creek.
history bookThe Bay of Fundy is one of the Marine Wonders of the World with tides rising as much as 53 vertical feet over a 12-hour period twice each day. Cape Enrage offers one of the most spectacular views of the natural phenomenon from its towering cliffs and has been a light station and fog alarm since 1838. The current light tower is over 150 years old. Cape Enrage is so named for the turbulent waters that pass over the reef which continues southward from the island for nearly a kilometer at low tide and the rough seas can be seen for much farther on windy days as the current and wind are in opposition. It is one of the most hazardous areas for mariners in the upper Bay of Fundy.

When the two RV Gypsies first arrived at Cape Enrage, there was so much fog that the lighthouse could barely be seen. But as the photos below show, eventually the fog lifted.

The Cape Enrage Lighthouse
Cape Enrage Lighthouse is one of the oldest on New Brunswick’s Fundy coastline. The original light was built about 1840 at a cost of £600 and was probably a fixed, white light which may have been changed later to a green hazard light. a second lighthouse (the current one) was built at Cape Enrage in 1870.

Once the fog lifted, the two RV Gypsies were able to enjoy the view from the lighthouse cliff.

The wooden platform seen in the above photos of the lighthouse is actually a platform for the zipline. The zipline was not very high up, only went to one other platform not that far away, and the rider does not even have to brake. The rider just relaxes and enjoys the ride. Both of the two RV Gypsies have ridden ziplines several times in other locations and they felt this one would be very lame, very short, and not worth $20.

The two RV Gypsies took a walk to the fossil-rich ocean floor by climbing down the stairway to the beach (low tide of course). The sign warns that everyone must be off the beach before high tide, or they will have a real problem - maybe even drown.

Lee Duquette went down the stairs first. Notice the people on the beach that barely appear as specks.

The rocks at Cape Enrage were difficult to walk on, but they were not as difficult as the rocks the two RV Gypsies climbed over at Hopewell Rocks.

Some of the rocks had amazing shapes, colors and lines.

Can you see the man rappelling down the mountain in the photo on the left below? Karen zoomed in on him in the right photo. He later told the two RV Gypsies that an 84 year old lady repelled the cliff earlier. WOW! This 12-hour certificate-bearing course includes classroom time and provides basic rope skills to individuals interested in sport rappelling and climbing. Students must demonstrate proficiency in tying knots, assembling basic rigging components, belaying competency, and must perform a safe and controlled rappel. They receive a final evaluation of “successful completion” or “unsuccessful completion” based on these demonstrations of practical skills. Cost &185.00
