Tidal Bore, Moncton
(3.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Happened to catch the Tidal Bore on my first day in Moncton. It was 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. Pretty cool event. Not as many people there as I expected. Nice walk along the river. 
  • This isn't something to plan your day around, but if you're in the area anyway, take a look at the timetable and make a stop if it's convenient. 
  • Were there and wondering what time the tidal bore took place. Not much to see. Construction on the statues so was not available for public viewing.
