So long as you get there when it's reversing, it is definitely something to see. Harbor seals come out and play -it's a relaxing spot to stop.

Our tour bus stopped by here in the morning and later in the afternoon. Didn't actually get to see the falls reverse, just the aftermath. Our bus tour only stopped for photo shoot for 10 minutes.

The emanation from the Irving pulp mill destroyed any beauty i could find in my visit of this wonder of nature. Finding the actual fall was confusing but we eventually got there. I would not even want to go there again until that pulp mill is closed, it is ruinning this attraction.

Nature is awesome. Definitely need to visit even if it is not low or high tide as the view of the bridges and the harsh cliff down to the river and Bay are really lovely to see.

Did not see the reversing rapids, only rapids going one way as we got there at the wrong time for the tide to turn.

During our shore stop in St. Johns on our cruise we took a shuttle bus excursion to some of the sites in the ares. The Reversing Falls was one of our stops. Wow, glad that it was . Truly amazing to see the river trying to go both ways. A must see.

I guess timing is everything. When we visited the falls, it didn't seem that much was going on, just water rushing by. Maybe there is a better spot from which to experience this rather unique phenomenon. I remember learning about the Bay of Fundy and I guess I was expecting something more dramatic.
