Challenge the Reversing Falls

For the experienced white water kayaker, the reversing falls at low tide present an incredible challenge, making a great ride. Read a first hand account of kayaking the Reversing Falls

For the less adventurous, but equally daring, try walking through the falls in a unique “bubble” or taking part in a jet boat ride.

Ride the Tidal Bore & Mud Sliding

The earth at the top of the Bay opens up to waters that rush in at high tide. A few local companies take advantage of this phenomena by offering white water adventure tours. This is a wild experience that is truly unique to the Bay of Fundy.

Once the Tidal Bore is emptied of the mighty waters of high tide, steep muddy banks are revealed. For the truly adventurous and slightly crazy only. Read more about riding the tidal bore.

Sea Kayaking

The Bay of Fundy has fantastic opportunities for sea kayakers. The waters can be still at times, as the Bay does offer shelter from the open ocean’s wake creating fantastic conditions to explore a largely undeveloped shoreline. With six hours between low and high tides, the view of the tide worn shores is constantly changing. Learn more about sea kayaking on the Bay of Fundy.
