GET WET AND WILD AT THE BAY OF FUNDY
Experience the thrill of nature at its best
Being the host of the world’s highest tides, the Bay of Fundy also delivers the most exhilarating way to take in this natural wonder. The great Shubenacadie River empties into the Cobequid Bay of the Bay of Fundy, and is the only place in the world where you can experience the thrill and exhilaration of tidal bore rafting! With tidal bores that can reach up to 10’ in height, you’ll have an experience you are not likely to forget.
The tidal bore is a wave of water that travels upriver twice a day as the result of the incoming tide. Ultimately, you have a natural phenomenon developing before your very eyes as the river changes direction. Watch as the tranquility of Nova Scotia’s largest river morphs into a beast of tidal waves and rapids. Climb into a zodiac boat, leave the paddles behind, feel the extreme force and hold on!
Tidal bore rafting is the perfect family getaway. Choose a tour that provides a safe environment for children or take part in a rollercoaster of waves. You'll be sure to find the perfect recipe for a wild white-water adventure. During those brief moments in between pure exhilaration, learn more on the tides and geology of the area. You'll be able to spot numerous bald eagles and other wildlife that inhabit the riverbanks.
Pack that extra set of dry clothes and get ready to meet the tidal bore head on! Don’t forget to plan your trip around the lunar cycles. The waves are more intense around a full moon!
