3 Great Three Hour Tours
Please note: We require all rafters to sign a waiver before departing on our rafting tours.
As the moon waxes and wanes so does the intensity of the tide swirling into the Shubenacadie. The Tide Schedule shows when the tide comes in and what you can expect on any given day.

The Qualifier

White Water Tango The Ultimate
Put on a life jacket and relax—but hold on tight to the gunwales of the zodiac. Even when the tides are less intense, tidal rapids can swell over 6 feet high. Take The Qualifier and focus on exploring nature on the river—on Qualifier days the river will be much less "in your face!" Adults $90. Children 12 and under $85. Quench your thirst for scenic beauty and outdoor adventure—do the Tango! A great trip for all ages, White Water Tango will get your adrenaline flowing. Higher rapids and waves combine for exhilarating action on these more intense days. As one rafter put it, "Totally Turbulent!!!!" $90. Children 12 and under $85. Rock & Roll! Experience the Ultimate—a fast paced and intense ride on 30 foot tide—driving the river backwards with the full force of the moon! Non-stop action from the moment the tidal bore enters the Shubie—as one rafter put it, "Compares well with the Colorado" $90. Children 12 and under $85.

What should I wear?
The Shubenacadie water, mud and silt can stain clothes, so it is recommended to wear older clothes as well an old pair of running shoes or sandals that you are less concerned about.
What's to eat?
After battling the tidal rapids for one and half to three hours, depending on the trip you take, everybody arrives back at the lodge HUNGRY! A complimentary BBQ is included with the trip. Hot Dogs, Pop and Chips with Hot Chocolate and Coffee on cooler days.
