Beautiful nature, sometimes surfers

It is a great location to watch the magnificent force of the tides coming in from the fundy bay, and if you're lucky you'll see a surfer or two on the wave when you go by

Went to Tidal Bore after lunch. Not much to see when we went other than muddy red water...not scenic at all. And area around it pretty run down looking. No good signage so at first thought we might be in the wrong place. True dusappointment. Would not recommend taking the time to view.

I wish we could have actually seen the little tide that rolls in. Maybe it would have been better, but it was cool to see the water at the in between stage of tides and see all the mud along the sides of the river. We should have known it wouldn't be much to see when the hosts at our... More

Due to the gravitational pull, the bore is at its highest during full and new moons. We were fortunate to see two surfers coming with the Bore. Quite a site. Truro's bore is higher because the area is narrower however, I don't think it is wide enough for surfers. There are bleachers and a platform from which to watch the... More

We stayed nearby and early five hours biking and hiking in the area while waiting for the 1:30 afternoon tide change. I wasn't sure if we were wasting our time BUT this event turned out to be phenomenal!! It's a must see: We were downtown Moncton on an overhang/lookout in an area my husband called "Boar Park". Plenty of standing... More

I was amazed at how fast the bore arrived and seeing the amount of water was mind boggling. The guide was so humorous, informative and helpful. Great to have a place to sit in the viewing area while waiting. Took me 35 years to see it and I am so glad I did!

We were lucky to see the bore one afternoon on our visit to Moncton. It is more of a wave than a bore. Be aware that the times listed are an estimate and it can occur +/- 20 minutes of the posted times online or at various locations. The day of our visit it was 15 minutes early. There are... More

This was our first stop on a busy day determined by the tides. (Next stops were Hopewell Rocks at high tide, Fundy NP and then back to Hopewell Rocks at low tide.) We only had to wait 20 minutes in the morning for the tidal wave to roll in. Interesting phenomenon to see the wave roll up the river, and... More

We timed our transit through Moncton to coincide with the bore and were not disappointed. We watched from the Vaughan Harvey bridge and had a great view of a 50 cm wave coming up the river towards us at about 10 kph. Seeing a natural phenomenon like this that is scheduled by astronomical factors is pretty cool.
