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.

It's beautiful natural reaction happening to calm waters of river suddenly change in to violent tide.. happening every day 02 times. Nice walking and cycling path to watch it. No big crowds. Take your time and enjoy the river view.

Buy a lock with your lover to place on the bridge gate. 1:30 the tide comes in every day and the river is muddy, looks like chocolate.
