Tidal Bore

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.

Tidal bores are rare and only found in 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. 

The Fundy Chocolate River Station provides an exceptional vantage point from along its boardwalk, joining the Riverfront trail.
