Tidal Bore in Moncton

Tidal Bore

If you’ve never experienced the Tidal Bore in Moncton, this is an absolute must! Come see the highest tides in the world, where over 100 billion tons of water come in and out of the Bay of Fundy each year!

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. Twice daily, watch the Tidal Bore reach heights ranging from 0.5 to 1 m.


Tidal Bore Tips:

Feel the power of the ocean on full display, twice daily, with these tips:

🌊 Be sure to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled arrival of the Tidal Bore. 
🌊 Check out the Tide Times table to find out when the Tidal Bore occurs.
🌊 Bore Park is the best Tidal Bore viewing point. Located at 10 Bendview Court in downtown Moncton.
🌊 Take a seat on the amphitheatre in front of the river to watch the bore slowly roll in. 
🌊 Plan to stay downtown for a bit and enjoy a stroll along Moncton’s Riverfront Trail. Through five kilometres of paved and gravel trails you can walk, run or bike along the banks of the Petitcodiac, one of Canada’s most unique rivers.

Every day from June 24 to August 29, Resurgo Place staff will be on site to provide information about this interesting phenomenon. Staff will arrive on site twenty minutes before the scheduled arrival of the Tidal Bore when the bore is scheduled to arrive between 9 am and 6 pm.
