Seasoned river guides steer motor-driven, inflated rafts toward the tidal bore of the Shubenacadie River. Throughout the day, currents from the Bay of Fundy surge down the river at 30 km/h, which temporarily reverses the river’s flow. This resulting current shift creates mighty waves, and the sturdy rafts can end up soaring over 4- to 18-foot crests and troughs. Once the current slows, feel free to remove your lifejacket and temporary anchor tattoo and head to the riverbanks to mudslide on the clay slopes and into the water.
Fundy Tidal Bore Adventures
Fundy Tidal Bore Adventures founder Morgan McDonald is a passionate rafter with a decade of experience navigating the Shubenacadie River, whose shores are made of clay and dotted with trees. The high and low tides here mean that there are varying degrees of wave intensity, and the company's experienced guides can tailor the experience to suit each group’s comfort level. Before the trip, guides will help passengers suit up in PFDs and store their valuables in waterproof bags. The crewmember can snap pictures of the trip along the way; they’ll then email the photos to you later or stuff them into a bottle and float them to postal workers wearing waterskis.
