Overview of Your Tour

In the particular location where this tour takes place, the river passes through a narrow gorge and crashes head-on with the rising tides of the Bay of Fundy. This collision is so strong that it causes the Saint John River to flow in reverse. Meanwhile beneath the water’s surface are a series of ledges, or underwater falls, as high as 60 meters (200 ft). That’s the same height as Saint John’s 15-storey City Hall building! These underwater rock outcroppings cause the water to swirl in rapids. These Reversing Falls Rapids are a natural wonder unique to the Bay of Fundy.

This gentle cruise is also an ideal opportunity for spotting Canadian marine wildlife. With a bit of luck, we could possibly meet our local friends the dolphins and seals! Our experienced, local staff will be there to keep you safe on the water and answer any questions you may have. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the Bay of Fundy, which was voted one of the seven wonders of North America in 2014. Whether you want to learn more about the Reversing Falls Rapids phenomenon or the saltwater fish of Canada, ask away!
