Rafting: a Great Adventure!
Tidal bore river rafting is powered by the world famous tidal bore, making Nova Scotia’s rafting tours unlike any other rafting experience on the planet. Imagine floating on a calm, peaceful river one moment, and seeing it transformed into raging rapids the next! This is Nova Scotia’s famous tidal bore in action. Twice a day when the tide changes, the bore temporarily reverses the flow of the river, creating incredible roller coaster rapids that will give you a wild ride that you will never forget. Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie River is the only tidal bore in the world where you can experience this fun-filled thrill twice a day, every day!
Rafting Adventures in the Bay of Fundy
Canada’s Bay of Fundy
is an incredible marine phenomenon. Every 6 hours and 13 minutes, 100 billion tons
of seawater rush in or out of this natural funnel, producing tides that are as high as a four-storey building. This one-of-a kind natural wonder has made it possible to experience an equally rare adventure: tidal bore river rafting. It’s a must-do adventure trip on your Nova Scotia vacation.
Experienced guides manoeuvre Zodiacs upriver as you begin your adventure. Learn about the tides and geology of the area, see bald eagles soar above your head, and watch for other wildlife along the riverbanks. Then hang on and wait to get wet as the tidal bore overpowers the flow of the river. It’s a ride you will never forget! If weather permits, you might even have the chance to experience the popular mud sliding in the smooth and slippery mud that lines the Shubenacadie River.
Tidal Bore rafting is a highly recommended experience suitable for all ages. In addition to your river rafting trip, enjoy nearby Nova Scotia accommodations and Nova Scotia cuisine as part of a vacation package.
