Tidal Bore Rafting

Tidal Bore Rafting 

Feel the rush of riding eight-foot waves in a white-water raft as the surging power of the world’s highest tides turns the Shubenacadie River into a water roller coaster you’ll find only in Nova Scotia. 

Relax (then hold on tight!) as expert guides take you cascading down white-capped rapids as the incoming ocean suddenly reverses the flow of the river. These full-day Bay of Fundy excursions add some history into the mix, and many operators provide lunch. All you need to bring is your sense of discovery. And a change of clothes.

Mud Sliding

While not quite an Olympic sport (yet!), you can test your skills in ‘mud sliding’ in the smooth and slippery muck that coats the Shubenacadie River bed. The Shubie’s banks are formed from a soft mud that is naturally slick. So with a cautious jump or a running dive, embrace that inner-child who loved playing in mud puddles and get dirty. 

The Power of the Tide

160 billion tons of water move in and out of the Bay of Fundy. Every day, twice a day. That’s more than the combined flow of all the freshwater rivers on our planet. It’s the highest tide in the world, and this remarkable phenomenon has created a unique seascape.

Home to 15 species of whales, marine life goes with the flow here. There are even spots on the Bay where you can walk on the ocean floor after the tide drops the height of a four-storey building.
