Downtown Moncton Tidal Bore Park - Petitcodiac River

This natural phenomenon is a result of the record high tides of the Bay of Fundy. These cause the water in Moncton's Petitcodiac River to raise with just one wave coming in from the Bay. Within an hour the river can go from a muddy river bottom at low tide to being filled to its banks at some 7.5 m depth. The Tidal Bore can be seen from many points in the Greater Moncton area, one of the best being Tidal Bore Park, where a clock displays the time of the next bore. For more information visit a Moncton tourist information centre.
