Discover Tidal Bore Rafting
Powered by the world famous Bay of Fundy tidal bore, Nova Scotia’s tidal bore rafting tours are unlike any other rafting experience on the planet.
Imagine floating on a calm, peaceful river taking in the scenic cliffs one moment, and seeing it transformed into raging rapids the next. Twice a day when the tide changes, the bore temporarily reverses the flow of the river, creating incredible roller coaster rapids.
Our experienced tour guides manoeuvre Zodiacs upriver as you learn about the tides and geology of the area. Take in the sights as you head up river, because once you hit the tidal bore you’ll be busy crashing through the wall of waves in front of you. It’s a ride you will never forget.
Bay of Fundy tidal bore rafting is fun for all ages. Check your rafting operator’s tide schedule to choose a high to low intensity tour. Remember to wear old clothes because rafting the tidal bore is as exciting as it is dirty.
