We called in here on one of our travelling days. Unfortunately it was not the right time to see the tidal change from the viewpoint but we were nonetheless impressed with our visit. The displays explaining all about the tidal bores are very well done and the lady on duty was very informative and extremely pleasant. They have well-kept, clean facilities as well.

If you happen to drive in front of the center, you can stop there, but don't make a detour for it. It is basic, simple, and overall "just ok".

Absolutely love watching the tidal bore come out or even love seeing it when the tidal bore is out. Spectacular views.

Lots more here than you'd expect. There's a public restroom on site. Displays showing the tides and a place to go to an outlook to view them. You can see the Canadian Black Duck here too.

It is important that your visit be timed properly to get the lecture (short) and guided observation of the actual Tidal Bore. Easy to look up on their web site. We were there on a cool and blustery day with less than ideal conditions for viewing, but still very glad we went. I had never seen a tide come in as one big wave, with a huge change in elevation in a short period of time. Fascinating and fun!

We were looking for a good location to see the tidal change at the bay of Fundy and found this facility on the internet. It is about a hour northeast of Halifax, near Maitland, Noval Scotia. The facility is small bit has very nice interpretive panels telling visitors about tidal bores at the Bay of Fundy and all over the world. The lady at the desk was quite helpful and shared a lot oc good local information and other attractions to visit. A panel provides the schedule of tidal bores in the area.

There is a nature trail you can walk to see a restored wetland area and a short trail to the tidal bore "look off" (viewing area). The trails use the old railroad grade that was abandoned in the 1970's.

A guide shows up at the observation deck about 10 minutes before each bores expected time. The guide tells you about what you should see as the tide begins to rise in the area.

The admission to the cneter and the area is free.

Great viewing platform, and the interpretive centre was very helpful. The team there was very friendly and helpful with all our needs. They had a variety of travel magazines also available for the local places to check out.

Great view of the River and a handy explanation of the tidal bore phenomenon. If you have friends taking the tidal bore rafting you can watch them from the observation deck.

Interpreters will explain the tidal bore from the overlook about 30 minutes prior to the scheduled tidal bore time. If you can time your visit to arrive at this time, then, yes it is a worthwhile stop. Otherwise, there is little to see or do at the centre.
