Tidal Bore Rafting – Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia

A couple weeks ago Cailin traveled an hour from Halifax to Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia with Candice to go tidal bore rafting at the Tidal Bore Rafting Park & Cottages . The Shubenacadie river is one of only 8 rivers in the whole world where you can go tidal bore rafting. 3 of the rivers (including the Shubenacadie River) are on the Bay of Fundy where the highest tides in the world rush up the rivers causing the tidal bore. When the tide comes in you are in for a wild ride as seen in Travel Yourself’s latest video.

    This is so cool! I’ve never heard of tidal bores, let alone tidal bore rafting. Pretty amazing that the water can go from shallow and placid to wild rapids in such a short time. Looks like you ladies had a blast!

    This looks like so much fun, but I have to ask…How did you keep your camera dry?

    Hi Cailin!

    Seems you had quite some fun hanging out with Candice and trying tidal bore rafting! Next step would be to try tidal bore surfing in the Pororoca (Brazil)- have you considered it?

    Okay – so here’s my impression of your life:

    Hang out with Candice. Do awesome stuff. Have lots of fun. Shoot cute videos. Make Everywhereist totally jealous.

    Do I have that all right?
