Saint John Reversing Falls Rapids Thrill Ride Jetboat

2. Saint John Reversing Falls Rapids Thrill Ride Jetboat

Embark on a thrilling adventure with See Sight Jetboats to witness the world's highest tides in the Bay of Fundy. Only here can you venture into Saint John's Reversing Falls Rapids, a heart-pounding experience. Brace yourself for a wet and exhilarating ride through the renowned rapids, and even pass beneath the iconic SKYWALK. In this particular location, the river passes through a narrow gorge and crashes head-on with the rising tides of the Bay of Fundy. This collision is so strong that it causes the Saint John River to flow in reverse. Meanwhile beneath the water’s surface are a series of ledges, or underwater falls, as high as 60 meters (200 ft). That’s the same height as the Saint John 15-storey city hall building! It’s the underwater rock outcroppings that cause the water to swirl in rapids and these Reversing Falls Rapids are a natural wonder unique to the Bay of Fundy – a thrill lover’s dream! Keep an eye out for diverse marine life like dolphins, harbour seals, and seabirds. This is your chance to feel the power of the Bay of Fundy up close and create lasting memories.

What people are saying about Saint John, New Brunswick

I was on a cruise with my family and the excursions we wanted were fully booked. We lucked out though, because I found Get Your Guide and this tour was so much better. We were a group of 4 so we ended up with a private tour of Saint John with our guide Cher. The tour covered all the areas we wanted to see as well as some we hadn't heard about. We learned about the area on the way to each stop and were given time to go through at our own pace. Would definitely recommend this tour and Cher was a great guide.

Our guide was waiting for us on the pier as arranged. Cher was friendly and knowledgeable about Saint John, adding background to each of our stops. When we expressed interest in something we had read about, she gracefully worked it into our allotted time.

Saint John is one beautiful city with a rich history. And I cannot think of anyone better than Cher to visit this city with. Thank you for such a special tour and experience!

Wonderful tour and an amazing tour guide, Cher! She was fun, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. We had a very enjoyable trip around the city.

The owner was lovely. Showed us the entire town , its highlights & took our pictures too.
