The restaurants weren't open and there wasn't anyone there to explain about the reversing falls. But it is a must see especially at low tide and it was a nice little walk down the stairs to the lookout and the dock.

I visited the reversing falls as part of a bus trip to the Bay of Fundy. So by comparison only, the reversing falls seem average. Most people probably experience the falls the way I did as a 20 minute stop on a multi-stop tour. However, the people who were down in the water versus those of us on an observation... More

Just make sure your GPS is updated because it was a bit hard to find in the city.. I went for the in tide as well as the out going tide..I loved the view from the top of the building as well as inside at the dinning area..

Lovely even without the reversal at high tide. Lovely overlook, if you can get past the paper plant (which we did). Plan around the tides as it flows left to right (upstream) at high tide and right to left at low tide.

It's interesting, but if you need to pay a lot to see it then don't. There are lovelier views and ways to spend your time. We were on a cruise and had limited time, I'd have skipped this had I really known how limited this would be in terms of interest.

OK, so the tide is coming one way (upstream), and the water from the Saint John River is coming down to the Bay of Fundy. I get that, and when they meat the water gets choppy. So, then you put a bridge and a greasy restaurant on top of it all. Makes sense to who?

I had no idea of the geology here until we went to the lookout. Stayed for an hour & a half to watch the flows changing. Well worthwhile & considering that it's free, value is exceptional. Make sure to check the view from both ends of the bridge!

The water is moving so fast here. We went back twice - once at low tide and the second time at high tide. This is worth doing if you can as you can actually see that the water has reversed directions. Low tide it was moving downstream, high tide it was moving up stream. Really interesting. If you time it... More

Catch it near low tide and again a couple hours later to see the contrast fro waterfall to reversing tidal flow.
