We did not see the tidal bore but the lady in the visitor centre put a video on for us which we enjoyed, she was pleasant and very helpful.

The world's highest tides occur in East Hants County and environs. The Truro viewing site in adjacent Colchester County does nearly as well. The benefit of the site is that it easily is accessible. Make sure you check online for the best tidal times otherwise...More

I haven't seen the tidal bore for many years and it hasn't changed. Great to see nature at its best. Improvements are being made to the area to accomodate hikes, viewing, etc. The visitor centre on site is very helpful.
