Hot Tip: Tidal Bore Rafting on the Bay of Fundy

Date Posted: August 23, 2017Reading time: 1 minute


We’re taking a weekly look at something or some place we love in Nova Scotia! Follow along each week this summer as we celebrate well-known favourites and local hidden gems.

Looking for a little adventure? Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world, with one hundred billion tonnes of seawater flowing in and out twice a day. And the best way to observe this phenomenon, we think, is from the water.

A tidal bore rafting tour takes you on an exciting journey as the tide enters the Bay and its rivers. Depending on the location and the size of the tide, these waves can reach up to 11 feet high, with speeds up to 12 km/hr. For anyone craving some unique fun to remember for a lifetime, this is a must while in Nova Scotia. You can even sneak in some mud-sliding adventures as part of your tour!

Our hot tip:

Tidal Bore Rafting Resort on the Shubenacadie River offers everything you need, from organized group tours to spectacular cottage accommodations overlooking the river.

Trust us, this is an adventure you don’t want to miss!
