Tidal Bore

Riverview offers a beautiful vantage point from which to view the Petitcodiac River's tidal bore. You can see it from the Riverfront Trail and on the boardwalk behind the Fundy Chocolate River Station, where interpretive panels are installed detailing the history of merchant ships on the river, people of the tides and geological discoveries from our area. 

The tidal bore is a phenomenon that occurs when an incoming tide from a larger body of water enters a narrow river or bay and travels againstthe current creating an impressive standing wave. Found in only a handful of geographical points worldwide, this natural wonder barrels through the Petitcodiac River twice daily as water from the Bay of Fundy's famous highest tides reaches Riverview.
