What is Tidal Bore Rafting?

The tidal bore is the first sign of the incoming tide and it occurs, roughly, every 12.5 hours. The tidal bore can be anywhere from a slight ripple in the water to a 10 foot wall of water (in narrow parts of the river) during extreme tides. Once the tidal bore passes through, waves will begin to form over shallow parts of the river (usually sand bars). The waves, that are created from the incoming tide, only last for a short period of time until there is too much water. It is our job, as your tour guides, to read the river and create the best experience possible for you. While we chase these waves down the river you can expect to get a ride like no other. Our guides have over 7 years experience and know how to customize each tour to suit the riders. If you’re a first timer or have children in your group and you just want to ease into it, we can do that! But if you think you’ve seen and done it all, just let your tour guide know and we can help you out! Either way, we have a treat in store for you! We hope to see you soon!

No matter the type of tide, we pride ourselves in being able to customize each tour to suit the riders. We make it our goal everyday to make sure you leave here with the best experience possible on the river!

Extreme Tide:

Creates the biggest and best waves the river has to offer. An absolute must for the thrill seeker. Make sure to hold on tight because you’re in for a wild ride!

High Tide:

Creates large waves that make for a really exciting ride. Don’t underestimate this one or you may find yourself swimming with the fish in the Shubie River!

Regular Tide:

Creates mid-size waves that are still a lot of fun! These tides are best for people who are not into extreme adventure and/or groups with children. You can come out to experience waves, mud sliding, and beautiful scenery as a family!
