Nova Scotia met us with a wonderful afternoon at the beach and then rafting the tidal bore in the Shubenacadie River. We rented an adorable cottage in the small town of Maitland, NS. We set out at 6:30 in the morning to wait for the tide to roll in. As the tide quickly moves in over the sand bars standing waves are created. When we rafted the waves were standing 9ft tall. We took out rafts with 42hp propellers and drove into the waves head on. We would then chase the standing waves down the river as they were created over more and more sand bars. It was one of the most fun things I've ever done. I've never heard my dad laugh so hard in my life. Rafting the tidal bore in the Bay of Fundy is an absolute must for your traveling adventures. Being my 5th rafting trip - it was the most fun. Here are some pictures from Maitland and the beach!
