If you are in Saint Johns New Brunswick then don't miss this event at high or low tide. Good view from either side fo the bridge. More fun and relaxing from the Reversing Fall Restaurant.

Very unusual tide pull that could bring anything down into the depths! There are viewing areas on both sides of the river, Even if you aren't able to go at tide change, it is a powerful water scene. Helpful signage explains what happens and gives...More

We were on a cruise and the 'red path' leading to the Reversing Rapids started very near to where our ship berthed in Saint John so it was easy to pick up. It's a very even, virtually flat walk... the odd very gentle slope but...More

A must see at high and low tide. Make sure to visit this wonder while you are here with a guide. Best to make this your first and last stops of the day.

If you have never experienced this, it is worth the trip. It is definitely something to see. It is more like reversing rapids unless you stay for a few hours while the tide changes fully.
