Can I take my kids tidal bore rafting?
Kids are more then welcome to come out but we do recommend the low-medium tides for the youngsters
What do I wear for rafting?
We recommend wearing old or dark clothing as the Bay Of Fundy water can stain light colored clothes and of course dress for the weather. For footwear you should wear something that is strapped to your feet and provides good traction.
What to bring?
Change of clothes and a towel.
Can I do a high tide on a low tide day?
With this type of rafting we can only offer what`s on our schedule as it`s all calculated by the strengths of the tides that are pushing it`s way into the river.
What is mud sliding?
Mud sliding is exactly how it sounds. We enter a tributary that enters into the Shubenacadie River so you have a chance to get out of the boat and slide down the muddy banks.
