Tidal Bore Rafting Resort
12215 Highway 215
Urbania, NS B0N 2H0.

With the world’s highest recorded tides, the Bay of Fundy is witness to one of nature’s unique shows found only on the Shubenacadie River in Nova Scotia. The bore, or tidal wave, will gather in height and strength as it nears the Bay of Fundy and enters the river system. It takes experiencing it in person to really understand it’s magnitude. The immense force of the incoming tide will reverse the outgoing river and send it up river, towards the Town of Shubenacadie.We are having an event to celebrate this phenomenon. Cachers may come to experience the tidal boar first hand in the river on a Zodiac, or may watch from the shore. for those geocachers not going river rafting, there are many geocaches to be found in this area. New caches will be placed prior to the event.

Watch our newsletter for registration to open. Book early before spaces sell out!

Fee – $ 64.00

Free for all geocachers watching on shore.

Seating is limited, so register early to avoid disappointment.

8:00 am – All people who have registered to go rafting MUST report to the Resort office. You can check in to the geocaching event when your exhilarating trip is complete.

8:30 am – All river rafting cachers are on the boats.

9:00 am SHARP – Zodiacs leave to experience the bore. Due to the tide, boats CAN NOT wait for anyone. Rafters arriving late will be left behind.

11:25 am – (approximately) Boats will have returned to the Resort, and those cachers out enjoying the caches in the local area should head back to the resort as well.

Un event satellite officiel de Maritime Mega 4!

Observez le mascaret!

Venez vivre le mascaret soit comme rafteur, soit en l’observant de la rive. Ce phénomène saura plaire à tous.

le 4 août 2017 de 8:00 à 9:00
12215 autoroute 215
Urbania, N.-É. B0N 2H0

La rivière Shubenacadie en Nouvelle-Écosse profite des marées les plus élevées au monde qui se manifestent au sein de la baie de Fundy. Le mascaret se forme et agrandit en force et en hauteur pour ensuite se verser dans la rivière. Il faut l’observer pour se rendre compte de la véritable ampleur de cet événement. L’immense force de la marée inverse le flux de la rivière vers la ville de Shubenacadie.

Cet événement sert à célébrer ce phénomène. Les participants peuvent jouir de l’expérience sur la rivière à bord d’une embarcation Zodiac ou observer le long des rives. Pour ceux qui choisissent de demeurer sur terre ferme, plusieurs géocaches se trouvent dans la région. Des nouvelles caches seront placées au préalable.

Pour se renseigner sur l’expérience à bord de l’embarcation Zodiac, consultez auprès de www.maritimemega.com

Activités gratuites pour les participants qui observent à partir du rivage.
