Definitely worth seeing once. It is amazing how fast the water in the river fills up- one minute it is going toward the ocean and the next, the wave comes and the water is going upstream. We hung around tge Park for about 45 minutes...More

With a full or new moon the wave is substantial and the tide comes in quick. Worth seeing once as it is somewhat unique due to the high tides, but not that amazing for those not interested in natural phenomena

This is a once in a life time thing to do - not because it is sooo amazing, but once is enough. It was a fun thing to show the kids, and to see it was fun too. But really, once is enough.

We were lucky enough to see it twice. This was just before a full moon and the second day was more impressive. We even had a surfer leading the wave.

Only seen something like this on TV, very impressive to see it live. Make sure to arrive ahead of expected arrival of the bore to pick the best spot.

Very cool to see the flow, when you expect an ebb! Would have liked to catch some surfers on the waves.

While I've visited Moncton many times this was the first time I went to see the tidal bore. In the past I observed the high and low tide when driving by and wasn't too impressed. This time I went when the tide was coming in....More

It's definitely an awesome experience to see the difference between high and low tide in the Petitcodiac River! It takes about 2 hours for the river to fill completely after the bore has passed and empties quite slowly for... More
