2020 Tide Schedule

3 Great Three-Hour River Tours

As the moon waxes and wanes, so does the intensity of the tide swirling into the Shubenacadie. This results in different tour experiences. Read more below! The Tide Schedule shows when the tide comes in and what you can expect on any given day. Because the tidal bore is a natural phenomenon, all times and turbulences are predicted.

The Qualifier

Put on a life jacket and relax — but hold on tight to the gunwales of that 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 cost $85, children 12 and under just $80.

White Water Tango

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!!!!". The White Water Tango costs $85 (with children 12 and under just $80).

The Ultimate

Rock & Roll! Experience The Ultimate-a fast-paced and intense ride on 30-foot tides that drives the river backward with the full force of the moon! You experience non-stop action from the moment the tidal bore enters the Shubie. As one rafter put it, "[It] compares well with the Colorado!" The Ultimate costs $85 (with children 12 and under just $80).

Watermark Tours

Book an hour and a half on the river for just $65! (Children 12 years old and under cost just $60). Embark for the lower end of the river one hour before the tide and disembark at the midpoint-or, to join the tour for up-river adventure, arrive on site at the tide times listed in the tide schedule.

Group Tours

Groups of 8 or more will receive a $5.00 discount! A 25% non-refundable deposit is required for group reservations. We require a full two-weeks prior notice for the cancellation of a group reservation, and 48 hours for groups less than 8. We are bus and RV accessible. 

**All Prices Are Subject To Applicable Tax. 

Are Reservations Required?

Reservations are recommended to ensure a seat on the raft. 

What Should I Wear?

The Shubenacadie water, mud, and silt can stain clothes. We recommend that you 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 a half to three hours (depending on the trip you take) everybody arrives back at the lodge HUNGRY! A complimentary BBQ is included with your trip, including hot dogs, pop, chips, and hot chocolate and coffee on cooler days.
