The Tidal Bore

Mascaret

2014 Tidal Bore Schedule

(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.) 

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.
