I had expected to see bigger waves, the day we visited we arrived precisely at incoming tide and the waves were minimal, but the viewing park is well set up with bleachers. Make sure to check the tide changes for best viewing.

Having grown up in Moncton I remember the good old days when the Tidal Bore was a spectacular event each day. Then they built the causeway and destroyed the bore. However the good news is they have now opened the gates of the causeway and...More

The tidal bore arrives the Tidal Bore Park just about 5 minutes late against the predicted time table. Wonderful experience but the bore does not last long, around 3 minutes, then done! Luckily there was no mosquitoes that day even it rained the day before.

I imagine that the experience can change day to day due to the height of the tides and weather etc etc. However the day we were there it was beautiful and sunny. The bore came around the corner right on time. You could hear it...More

A lot of mosquitos and the tide is not as exciting as expected. You need to be there at high tide to see the bore.

I had the luck to see the evening tidal bore come up the Peticodiac River in Moncton. Great spot to view is at the Bore Tide Park

It's definitely an awesome experience to see the difference between high and low tide in the Petitcodiac River! It takes about 2 hours for the river to fill completely after the bore has passed and empties quite slowly for... More
