Highest tides from the great Bay of Fundy as it flows through the Petitcodiac River. Follow the boardwalk through downtown Moncton to Dieppe. Popular with tourista and locals alike. Most popular during Spring, Summer and Fall.

Very neat experience to watch the tidal bore flow into the downtown core. Very nice to have a safe, cleared off boardwalk along the river, a really great activity to do.

Moncton's Tidal Bore is a unique global phenomena, but it's only really interesting when you know the backstory. If you're planning to bring kids, explain it to them in advance.

Still neat to see if you are at the right time ,but when I was a kid the bore was much larger and impressive. Still neat to watch the seagulls waiting for it to come for their favorite sushi.

Every so often, when conditioned are perfect, Moncton hosts two of more surfers who surf the tidal bore as it curls up the Petitcodiac River. Lots of videos on YouTube if you are doubting me.
