Tide Heights

Experience the wonder of mother nature as a tranquil stream turns direction and becomes a rushing river full of rapids and amazing waves. Journey up stream, enjoying the scenic beauty, history and geology of this historic river.

To help determine the size and height of the waves created by the tidal bore, the Tidal Bore Rafting Resort was the original operator to introduce the tide category of regular, high or extreme tides. Regardless of your choice of experience, whether it be a relaxing ride to soak up the beauty of the scenery or a more intense ride, be assured that TBRR has one of the best safety records in the Nova Scotia rafting industry.
