Our Tours...

Tidal Bore Rafting Tours

We only offer a full Rafting Tour. On this Tour we board our boats at low tide and travel out to the mouth of the Shubenacadie River where it meets the Bay of Fundy. There we wait for the incoming tide. The arrival of the Tidal Bore signals the beginning of our trip. We follow the Tidal Bore up-river and ride the roller coaster tidal rapids that form behind it. In our boats we shoot these rapids over and over again until the rapids eventually dissipate.
The tidal bore signals the beginning of our trip as we follow the bore and ride the roller coaster rapids up-river.
Just sit back, hang on, and enjoy the ride of a lifetime.

These tidal rapids occur over patches of sand bars and we ride 6 to 8 of these areas of rapids during our Tour. Once the water gets deep enough the sand bars no longer cause rapids and then we motor back to where we started for some snacks.

This tour takes just over 3 hours to complete and covers up to 10 miles of river
. It is great for all ages, because our experienced guides will tailor your adventure to your group. Please bring a towel and a change of clothes because you will get wet.

Experience roller coaster tidal rapids reaching heights of up to 16' or more depending on river conditions.

Watch this video for an example of what our tours are like.
