At the mouth of the St. Croix River, Passamaquoddy Bay lies along the border of Downeast Maine and coastal Charlotte County, New Brunswick.
Passamaquoddy Bay is influenced by the extreme twice-daily tides and strong currents that bring nutrients from the deep ocean into the Bay of Fundy, creating a rich feeding ground for fin, minke, and humpback whales, and the endangered North Atlantic right whale.
