Overview of Your Tour
Are you ready to experience this awesome natural phenomenon from the confines of a speedboat? Dive face-first into the Bay of Fundy as tours depart multiple times a day from Saint John and take in the scenic views of the historic downtown, before turning up the speed and plunging headfirst into the rapids. In this particular location, 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 15-storey city hall building! It’s the underwater rock outcroppings that cause the water to swirl in rapids and these Reversing Falls Rapids are a natural wonder unique to the Bay of Fundy – a thrill lover’s dream!
This hectic adventure into the rapids will be accompanied by our experienced, local staff who will keep you safe on the water. They are knowledgeable about the Bay of Fundy, which was voted one of the seven wonders of North America in 2011. Whether you want to learn more about the Reversing Falls Rapids phenomenon or the saltwater fish of Canada, ask away!
