Truro Tidal Bore Interpretive Centre Open In Lower Truro




A new interpretive information centre is open in Lower Truro and already they are seeing lots of tourists coming to visit and watch as the tidal bore comes in. The County of Colchester had recently purchased the former Palliser Motel site and they renovated an existing building for this interim information centre and there are plans for a permanent facility for 2016. While this temporary interpretive centre doesn’t currently have set hours, the spokeswoman for Central Nova Tourism Association (CNTA) said it will be open for the bore’s arrival, and are expecting it to continue to be open until early autumn.

Locations to view the tidal bore phenomenon include: the Shubenacadie River at South Maitland (Glooscap Trail Route 236), the Salmon River in Truro (Hwy 102 Exit 14, Tidal Bore Rd.), and River Hebert (Fundy Shore Drive Route 242) The Central Nova Scotia Tourism Association website has more information the tidal bore as well as great day trips in Nova Scotia.

 

Map of Viewing Spots For The Tidal Bore


There are some great viewing spots to catch a view of the tidal bore along the Peticodiac River as it comes in from the Bay of Fundy on the high tides. Probably the best known viewing spot is in Moncton where an outdoor seating grandstand has been built along the boardwalk trail that runs along the river.

During the summer this is a great spot for photos and making videos of the tidal bore as it turns the bend as it passes Dieppe and heads towards the Moncton Information Center right beside the viewing area. Riverview, on the other side of the Peticodiac river from Moncton, also has fantastic viewing spots.

The Riverfront Trail system runs along the river and the area between the Gunningsville Bridge and the Causeway is an ideal spot for a long viewing experience. The surging tidal wave first passes under the Gunningsville Bridge, hitting the cement pillars that support the structure with a big splash, and then rushes up past the Chocolate River Factory on the banks of the river where a large boardwalk viewing area with interpretive panels has been built. The tourist info center is also at the Chocolate River Factory so it's a perfect stop to park and watch the bore. Lots of parking here and the trail is awesome!
