A tidal Bore is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of an incoming tide forms a standing wave of water that travels upstream, against the current of a river or narrow bay. The tidal bore in Moncton is caused when the unparalleled tides in the Bay of Fundy begin to make their way up the historic Petitcodiac River. The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world and over 160 billion tonnes of water comes in and out of the bay each day! Twice daily, observers can watch the tidal bore as this incoming rush of water overtakes the outgoing tide in the formerly placid river.

I've watched it several times and still not getting tired of seeing this - every time a bit different - one time very noisy as the huge wave was approaching, another time noisy, but not as much; one time with beautiful, smaller waves, another time...More

This was very interesting even if it wasn't the diluge of water I was expecting. One of the locals asked if I was expecting a tsunami and I'm thinking "YES!". This is over fast so pay attention to the tide charts and arrive at least...More

So glad we delayed our departure until after we saw this. This is an incredible phenomenon, not to be missed. Pictures really don't do justice.

Can't miss watching the tide rush up the river, reversing the flow and raising the level twenty feet or more. Tidal bore park has a great viewing deck, but anywhere along the riverside walk will do. There's even a clock showing the next two tides....More

The tides are getting better and better. Get ready to see it on the full moon, you won't be disappointed.

We were coming back from Hopewell Rocks so we viewed at 8pm. It was still worth it! One of the wonders of how powerful nature is.
