|A budding paleontologist|
Along with the actual cliffs, there is a pretty good interpretive centre with some fossil samples and microscopes and whatnot where you can kill time if you arrive between tours. They also have a gift shop and a restaurant which was cooking something that smelled good when I was there.
Things to keep in mind:
- Those tide charts!
- You only need a half day at Joggins so you can check out some other attractions in the area such as Cape D'or Lighthouse or the Anne Murray Centre (hey why not?).
- They have computers near the restaurant that you can use for free if you need to check your email or anything.
- You don't have to go as part of a guided tour, you are free to wander down on your own but I strongly recommend going with a tour. Otherwise you will probably think you are looking at a bunch of rocks and not realize the significance of what you are looking at. I thought it was just me but I spoke to another mom and she said the same thing.
