If you are in Saint Johns New Brunswick then don't miss this event at high or low tide. Good view from either side fo the bridge. More fun and relaxing from the Reversing Fall Restaurant.

Unfortunately we were unable to see the full effect of the reversing tide as it was not at the high or low tide times. However we could imagine how spectacular it must be. There is a free viewing area adjacent to the road bridge over...More
