We offer both a 2 hour and a 4 hour ride on the tide. Your adventure begins when you board our Zodiacs with the anticipation of the Tidal Bore, the first wave of the incoming tidal surge. This bore may reach 1-10 feet in height depending on tidal and channel conditions. Our skilled guides ride the crest of this wave for approximately 1/2 mile up river. The passing of the famous “Tidal Bore” signals the start of natural sand rapids which cover huge expanses of sand bars along a 10 mile stretch of the Shubenacadie River. Our larger, quieter motors allow for more passes through each set of these rapids. Following this exhilarating adventure you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of this fascinating area during the cruise back to home base . Our knowledgeable guides will answer any questions you may have.
We provide personal flotation devices (PFD’s) and rain suits for cool days.
