I didn't know what to expect when I decided to do this with my family. It was so much fun and can't wait to do it again! Our guide was Mike Paul and he was so much fun! I even fell out of the raft lol, but he made sure I got back in. We went during extreme tides, my... More

We stayed here one night, spacious cottage, we were 6 people that stayed at the cottage, sofa bed not comfortable, not an easy place to find and owners not great at giving directions, I recommend it but find the place during day light, street is a dirt road and sign is dark with gold writing, really hard to find. But... More

Hi Jo-Anne Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. We are surprised that you had a hard time finding us. Directions are quite clear on our Web site and on Google maps. We are 10km North of Exit 10 on the East side of a main Hwy (215). One turn off the main highway from Halifax or Truro, and... More

Attended for a Bachelorette Party and went rafting we rented out the 5 bedroom chalet. Rafting drivers were amazing and had a great time. The chalet was huge with tons of bathrooms and showers/tubs, more than enough seating for everyone with a wonderfully large great room for entertainment. Campfire pit handy but will need your own camping chairs. Ran into... More

We had a fantastic time rafting the Tidal Bore and playing along the river and had a great meal afterward. That would have been enough but the owners and staff went above and beyond when our bus broke down stranding us there. They opened up the kitchen for us and provided a supper meal even though they would normally have... More

I went to Tidal Bore Rafting Resort for a day with a group from work and it was easily one of the most fun activities I've done in NS. Our driver, Cliff, really seemed to enjoy his job. He gave us a lot of interesting information about the river and how the tides worked as we drove upstream, then we... More

About 10 of us came for business meetings in a team build atmosphere that was not a hotel in Halifax or a boardroom. We were not disappointed- They have cabins/cottages that can accommodate various numbers of people but we split into 3 groups as we should have called earlier (tip- it is popular and fills up fast). While the rafting... More

We are two girls travelling through Canada and wanted to do a rafting tour before but it never worked out. Now we are glad that we waited until now - and did the Tidal Bore Rafting tour (we took the 2hrs tour). We had SO much fun!!! Our guide Cliff just nailed it and is probably the best rafting guide...

Had Wilson as our rafting guide. He was equal parts professional, knowledgable and humorous. We were lucky enough to have rafted when a rare whirlpool had formed in the area, and he took full advantage of it. Was with a group of 6 and we all had a blast. We all felt very comfortable in our cabins, as well as... More
