Attraction details
Owner description: A tidal Bore is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of an incoming tide forms a standing wave of water that travels upstream, against the current of a river or narrow bay. The tidal bore in Moncton is caused when the unparalleled tides in the Bay of Fundy begin to make their way up the historic Petitcodiac River. The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world and over 160 billion tonnes of water comes in and out of the bay each day! Twice daily, observers can watch the tidal bore as this incoming rush of water overtakes the outgoing tide in the formerly placid river.

They have a nice seating area, and a schedule that let's you know when to be there. That's important, because it happens quick and you don't want to be late. Could use some more interpretive information to explain exactly what is happening.

It's quite something to see how powerfull this is , the wave is probably a foot and a half high , it has come down from what it use to be when I was a kid 4 feet high , something to see all in all though, close to the malls and downtown area bars and grills

Thats all that happen's,

It could be something amazing, and they could have lights go off, and maybe a volunteer (so this never has a fee) tell people when the wave comes so then it could be a place where more people would go to so it would be considered an event.

I probably wouldn't go there for an evening dinner with my wife but for food and drinks it's a great place. The menu is very innovative for a pub bistro. Tried alot of items and everything taste great. The side salad that comes with a few plate is amazing, one of my favorites.

Great location and nice view on main street!
