I remember seeing the tidal bore for the first time in 2018. For those expecting a biblical wave (as in the Ten commandments), you will be disappointed. But seeing a river flow in it's opposite direction is amazing, no matter what height the tide is at. Take out food from one of the m a n y nearby restaurants can be eaten at one of the picnic tables, or you can make your own picnic lunch. Children will greatly enjoy the playground. Good luck getting them to leave. With washrooms, and garbage containers provided, there is no need to worry about where to put the trash. The center has information on other nearby attractions as well. Best part of this is the price, just your time. Nothing else.

We went here as we travelled on through Nova Scotia. Apparently, you have to be here on the perfect day to see anything significant. The tidal bore on this day was so small that we didn't realize it had even passed until the employee at the centre told us it was done. We would see better if we came back in 2 months. Not likely to happen.

I super appreciate that this place posts on-line so you can plan to be there when the bore arrives. I also appreciate the signage explaining tides and the tidal bore and the geology of the surrounding area. But ... I found this to be a big disappointment. Perhaps if we were there for a 3 or a 4 it would have been different but a 1 is just not very exciting at all. Definitely a whimper not a bang.

This visitor centre clerk was very friendly and knowledgeable about the tidal bore and city streets. As we were not in time to witness the water phenomenon, she helped us get to the secondary highway we were looking to tour the bay.

The fact that the Canadian system around the bay of Fundy is so comprehensive is fantastic. The viewing center has toilets, picnic tables, WIFI, seating and loads of viewing space. While our Tidal Bore was puny a 1 on the scale of 1 to 4 it was still waaay cool to see that sucker come up the river. Awesome to see in person. In the future we will plan on synchronizing with a 3 or a 4.

It’s very awesome seeing that wave come around the corner.
Actually I would not have believed it if someone told me on how a tidal bore works, it truly is a nature wonder

It has a small water park and a trail along the tidal bore. Windy most of the time. A good place to walk the dog on leash or just sit and have a picnic.

It is nice to see the tidal bore rush up the river if you have never seen it before. The tide rises very quickly. Years ago it was a much higher rush of water.

Make sure to check the times for when the tide is coming in.(on a full moon is good, too) There are chairs but bring one, just in case and your camera. They have a lovely visitor center now with helpful info and a playground for the children and adults with young hearts. I personally love watching the tide come in, air is different, lots of birds, a wonderful phenomenon in our backyard. We most always bring a hot tea or coffee as a time to sit, conversate and reflect on God's Beauty.
