Got to see the afternoon tidal bore in the Bay of Fundy in Truro today. Was higher because we were close to the new moon (other high is full moon). The wave was bigger than I expected also because in Truro you're on a curve...More

The tidal bore is not super dramatic--not a tidal wave! But it is fascinating and worth seeing it startle the sea gulls and flood the river. Pretty fields & bird watching--and people watching. Kind of a festive scene. The woman at the desk was helpful....More

A great location to view the Tidal Bore and learn about the history and geology of the area. The visitor's center is nicely done.

Ample Parking, I have watched the Bore arrive here many times. Recommend going when the water is high and a Full or New Moon for the highest waves.

Watching the water surge up the narrows at Truro was incredible. You must be there on time otherwise all you would see would be an empty or full inlet. The visitor center was not open on May 18.

Good thing we went earlier in the day because the info centre is being built. We met some lovely people from Utah and western Canada and we all had a good laugh at just watching the water rise no big wave coming in.

We were surprised to see that there were quite a few people waiting to see this phenomenon. There is a small visitor centre with a very helpful lady, telling us approximately what time the tide would be coming in. When it was coming, she stepped...More
