Tidal Bore, Moncton

3.7
Witness the natural phenomenon of Tidal Bore, caused by the rushing current at the Bay of Fundy. Twice a day when the tide comes in, the calm Petitcodiac River rolls back upstream in a single, rapid wave. You can observe the bore from the shore and relax on the nearby benches while waiting, or try white water rafting on the river for a thrilling ride when the bore wave comes. Check the visitor information center in downtown Moncton for approximate tidal arrival times. Make Tidal Bore a centerpiece of your Moncton vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Moncton tour itinerary builder .

Where to stay in Moncton

The center of the city remains the most popular place to stay, with the appropriately named Main Street offering the best selection of hotels. Using this area as your base, you'll be just a stone's throw from the water, the pleasant Riverfront Park, and the city's main train station. For a more budget-friendly option, look to the motels a few blocks back from the water, along St. George Street. If you're just passing through, consider staying at one of the chain hotels near the airport, to the east of the city.
