The Shubenacadie River is visible in many places as you travel along Highway 215. It is characterised by high red banks of mud. At low tide, the water appears to be not much more than a small river in a muddy bed flowing between two...More

We rafted with "Shubenacadie Tidal Bore Rafting Park" and stayed in their cottages one night. The rafting was a highlight of the whole 2-week vacation. Definitely recommend doing that--it's fun, you all get wet, but it's not so dangerous that you need to worry. I...More
