Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Put Tidal Bore and other Moncton attractions into our Moncton trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.
