It all starts with the tidal power of the Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy is a natural wonder and tourist attraction located between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The Bay is known for having the highest tidal range in the entire world!

The power of the Bay of Fundy tide creates a wave the size of a small tsunami, which floods Nova Scotia’s largest river, the Shubenacadie River along with a several smaller rivers. The tide bores against the river’s natural current creating quite the sight. The narrow riverbanks of the Shubenacadie compress the rising waters with a surge of power creating a noticeable standing wave. This powerful wave creates intense tidal rapids allowing for an amazing rafting experience. The tide comes in twice a day and is utilized during warmer months. The best river to experience and watch this natural wonder is the Shubenacadie River due to its size, formation and location. The Shubenacadie River is the only body of water in Nova Scotia where you are able to go tidal bore rafting. Due to its force, its necessary that thrill seekers book a ride with guides in order to safely experience the tidal bore.
