The Tidal Bore
A scenic phenomenon caused by the Bay of Fundy tides, the Bore occurs twice daily. The higher waters in the Bay cause the water in the placid Petitcodiac River to roll back upstream in one wave, which can range in height from 3 to 60 cm. Note the rapid range and dramatic change in the river itself; at low tide the muddy river bottom is often visible, but within one hour of the arrival of the Bore, the water level rises some 7.5 meters (25’) to fill the river to it banks. The Tidal Bore can be observed from many places around Greater Moncton. Visit the local Visitor Information Center located besides Bore Park in downtown Moncton for Bore arrival times.
(NOTE: The Tidal Bore schedule is the approximate time of arrival. The arrival time can vary depending on many natural factors. It can vary 15-20 minutes before or after scheduled time.)

This centre was developed to preserve and restore one of the few remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coastline of North America. At the same time, the centre provides opportunities to learn more about the dune and its ecology. Stroll on the 2-km (1-mi.) boardwalk with ramps and stairs to the beach. The sand dune stretches 12 km (7.5 mi.) across Bouctouche Bay as a result of the constant action of wind, tides and sea currents since the last ice age.
