There are various ways to get to view (it's free) this particular water site: jet boat, zip line, pink bus, taxi, train, private or rental car and maybe another couple that I've left out. But either method gets you a good view at high or low tide or anytime in between. Personally, I saw it by bus and then train later in the day. My impression was that if I had taken a taxi I would have saved a bundle of cash and had a personal tour-guide too. The real event to see is 3 or 4 hours away at the Hopewell Rocks up the Bay of Fundy and renting a car to get there where the water level rises and falls up to 50 feet, twice per day. So, if you arrive by cruise ship, resist the urge to buy an on-board the ship tour, get off and either get a taxi or rent a car in advance. If you are touring on your own then you have many choices.

Interesting place to see. The difference between low tide and high tide are incredible. We went at 12 noon. And saw the river going in one direction at a good speed then returned in the evening to see a fairly calm river. Veryimpressive

The ferocity of the tides (the highest tidal rise in the world) is showcased. The water turns into a boiling maelstrom of swirling whirlpools and crashing and clashing of the tides. You can take a jet boat rapid ride - you will get soaked to the bone! Or you can take and informative Harbour/Falls boat trip for those less brave (like me )

Although it takes a couple of hours at the right time of day,it is quite impressive to see the river flowing into the harbour and then to see the river flowing back as the tide in the harbour rises still further.

Past review provided me with some excellent tips. Urge you to take a look at this natural phenomenon. It is free and easy to find and view.
