I really enjoyed going to see this amazing natural wonder. Seeing the calm waters flowing down the river was nondescript.... but then when you go back later and see the force of the river going in the opposite direction.... it truly is a sight. All should see this at least once in their life.

I'm not sure exactly what is supposed to be included in the review of this attraction, as there is a separate listing for The Falls Restaurant, which I've already reviewed. In addition, there's a one hour ten dollar boat ride along the falls which looks well worth it if we'd had the time (which we didn't). In any case, my review here is only of the view from the bridge. It's quite a nice view if you happen to be there, but there are so many nice views in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia that I wouldn't detour much to see it. We did detour to have lunch at the restaurant at a window looking down on the falls, and that was well worth it.

There are two viewing points. On either side of the bridge. I was there at low tide when the waters rush downstream. Helpful information desk

Just arrived home from Carnival glory cruise to Saint John and Halifax from New York. Took a tour with Roy Flowers of 'Roy's Tours' to the Falls. Amazing scenery, great company and made some new friends in New Brunswick. If you're not familiar with the area, be sure to book your excursion with 'Roy's Tours'. Roy will customize your tour to make sure you don't miss all the amazing things to do and see in the area. By the end of the day we felt like locals with so much new information and history of the area Roy was so kind to share with us. He is an amazing tour guide!

We walked from the cruise port along the Harbor Passage to Reversing Falls. Because of construction we had to walk partly along streets but were eventually rewarded with nice views. This is not Niagara Falls but it is an interesting phenomenon and the rocks formations along the cliffs are unusual. I wish there had been a larger gift shop/cafe with something more to drink than water.
