This isn't something to plan your day around, but if you're in the area anyway, take a look at the timetable and make a stop if it's convenient.

Were there and wondering what time the tidal bore took place. Not much to see. Construction on the statues so was not available for public viewing.

The tidal bore was scheduled to come in at 4:14 pm and we spent an hour walking along the park along the river which was very pretty with nice landscaping and recreational fields and a skate board park along the way. There's a grand stand for tidal bore viewing and we got there a half an hour early since we... More

Not as voluminous as it once was, the demonstration of nature's power and wonder, and Moncton's past is still important. When the river was the main way to travel, "The Bend" was a natural place to stop. When rail was the way to ship and travel "The Hub" was the spot that touched everything. Codiac Days used to celebrate the... More

We were staying at the Delta in Moncton and easily found several websites that listed the timing of the tidal bore. Since we were so close to the river and it was a cold windy day, we walked down to the river about 15 min prior to the listed time and within 10 min saw the wave race down the... More

Not as exciting as I had anticipated, but still very neat when thinking about the mechanism of the tidal bore. Was 15 minutes earlier then predicted. I would suggest going, but making sure to go early

When in Moncton, stop in and check out the tide, the Riverview side has a beautiful walking and jogging path. The Moncton side is also as beautiful and borders downtown. After a dinner, strolls along the bay for a view of the tide. One of Moncton's best views.

Good place to go for a stroll along the Tidal Bore. Interesting to watch the water come in and good opportunity to view water fowl.
