“Amazing natural phenomena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

One of the most amazing things I have watched. Free parking and a nice boardwalk to walk and watch it.

“A Natural Phenomenon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We happened on the tidal bore by accident while biking on the fabulous walking/biking trail in Moncton/Dieppe. All of a sudden we heard a rush of water and when we looked to our left, noticed the edge of the tide pushing up the river! I've never seen anything like this. The locals say it is not as profound since dams were put in somewhere on the system but it was amazing for a non-local to see. There is even a viewing stand to observe this fascinating sight. You must check the times though and plan to be there about half an hour before as the tide sometimes comes a little early or a little late but do check this bit of nature out!

“Very cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We watched from the Riverview side of the river. Be sure to check the tide table so you know when you can see it. It came in right on time. It's pretty awesome to see the wave caused by the tides.

“Missed It by This Much...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you want to see the Tidal Bore, get there plenty (at least a half hour) early. It came early the day we were in town. Looks cool on YouTube.

“Surfing the Tidal Bore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Had never seen a tidal bore before & right outside the tourist info office in Moncton they have built a viewing deck !!
The girl in the office knew the exact time the wave was coming up river that night & we got there 15 min. Early. There were 3 surfers in the river & as the wave came around the corner they caught the wave, stood up & rode the wave all the way up the river, one km that I could see, it was very well done & great to see.
