I have booked a weekend at the Chalets with Tidal Bore Rafting. (Booked 3 months ago and due to stay there in 2 weeks.) The big draw was the hot tub~I had initially tried to book with Irwin Lake Chalets but they are full. It took me two weeks to get a response to book accommodations. This is a much... More

Three cheers for Conor. He was an excellent guide he made us feel really comfortable. Can't wait to visit again. The rafting was amazing. Conor told us a lot about Nova Scotia on our way back. Was really anxious when I got there but Conor made everything awesome!

Great experience. Prepare to get soaked. Wear old clothes as the water makes everything brown. Those zodiacs they use are unsinkable and believe me the guides try to fill the boat up. We stayed the night and ate in the restaurant. Food is adequate but no vegetables (except chips) in sight. Beds are a bit hard but after a day... More

We wanted to raft with the Tidal Bore and chose The Shubenacadie Tidal Bore Rafting Park and Cottages. What a great choice! The rafting was fun and exciting. We were lucky to have a warm sunny day with extreme tides. I had never rafted before and am not too "outdoorsy" so I was a bit apprehensive. I felt very safe... More

Our group of 8 adults began our weeks vacation with the 2 hour rafting adventure. Our guide, Steve, was very informative, professional and fun. Luckily for us, it was a fine rafting day on the river too...it's nature - you get the day you get...we learned a great deal about the tides...ate lunch at the restaurant on the deck...it set...

We've lived near the Shubenacadie River for almost 25 years and never done the tidal bore rafting experience, so as an anniversary excursion for my wife and me, took my daughter and her boyfriend (early 20's) along with us. We booked online, without difficulty, and received a confirmation with accurate information about when and where to show up. We had... More

A friend and I used this company in September 2012. I have been waiting to cool down about the terrible experience since then but am still seething. After reading the review of a very similar experience to mine, I decided writing a review was the right thing to do. We had heard about the tidal bore for years and it... More

The staff there were so accommodating! My husband and I stayed for our anniversary. They gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and a huge bag of Russel Stover chocolates. They allowed us to check in super early at no extra charge. We planned to go rafting but last minute changed our mind and they were really good about it!... More

The cottages are rustic but passable. The guide was not customer service oriented. He kept slamming the boat into the waves to make it bumpier than it was, which was unpleasant. Cut and bruised myself. He also filled the boat up to the top with water, which was unnecessary and unpleasant. Front desk is run by young kids--not well attended.
