Great afternoon on the river, staff made the experience even more memorable (thanks Angus). Lots of silt in the river, so wear clothes you don't mind never getting totally clean again. Will be returning again on our next trip to NS.

We did the 2-hour tidal bore rafting. It was an exciting and fun experience! Got completely soaked, so definitely wear old clothes. Our guide, Connor, was funny, knowledgeable, and friendly. He had lots of great advice on other attractions to see around the province.

Professionally run outfit. Done this twice and both times have been great. Angus was our guide - a real pro. We went for the 3 hour trip. Go for strongest tides to get maximum thrills. Love hanging out on the river with these guys. Oh, wear old clothes.

Robyn was our boat captain and she did a great job! She shared lots of historical info, pointed out wildlife and landmarks and was very skilled at managing the boat. She had a great sense of humour and laughed along with us as the waves crashed into the boat!

My two sons and I enjoyed a thrill seeking adventure yesterday. Our experience was just so great it is hard to put into words. Our guide, David, was amazing and so fast and precise to put us out into the best Tidal Bore waves! Yes, we did get completely soaked, we were full of sand and mud, and we rode... More

We selected this company based on trip advisor reviews. We had a fantastic afternoon. When we arrived we went into the office and I handed in the waivers I had printed online. They advised to only wear items you're ok to get wet, and not wear hats or sunglasses that are attached to you. They sell sunglass cords for $5... More

We had a great time. Our guide Jason was terrific. Doing this again in late August, early September because the waves are HUGE them.

We chose this company for our tidal bore rafting based on high Trip Advisor ratings and it did not disappoint. As others have pointed out, this company is well organized and knows what they are doing. Check in is a smooth process, and definitely appreciated it that they give people rain gear for the trip (did not see people with... More

The day starts depending on when the bore is scheduled to roll in. Sitting on a Zodiac boat, you can see a slow ripple appearing from the far edge, the harbinger of a much bigger influx of water. You follow the rippling wave to a huge sand bar where you temporarily dock and hop off. From the edge of the... More
