Photo: Reversing Falls Saint John New Brunswick

Reversing Falls on the Saint John River in Saint John, New Brunswick is a unique tidal display that varies at low and high tides.

Under the bridge that spans the narrow gorge of the Saint John River in New Brunswick, one of the most unique phenomenons of the waterways occur. Here you will find the Reversing Falls which are created from the outrageous tides that take place in the Bay of Fundy.

At low tide, the Saint John River in New Brunswick empties into the bay through this narrow rocky passage where a ledge sits at thirty-six feet below the surface of the river. Here is where the whirlpools and rapids start to brew until the tide begins to rise again and eventually stops the flow of the river.

This is when there is a standstill in the action throughout the river and boats have a limited time of about twenty minutes to make it through the Reversing Falls. After that, the tide will then rise higher than the river and the currents are then reversed until the river is at its highest peak again and begins to recede.

... the river levels out, there is another twenty minutes that boats can maneuver the Reversing Falls. The tide will then resume it's natural flow until it is at its lowest point and the process starts all over again.The reason that the tidal movement is so different from anywhere else is because of the shape of the bay and it depends on which phase that the moon is in. While visiting Saint John, New Brunswick, it is best if you stop by the Reversing Falls at low tide and then again at high tide.

You can watch these magnificent maneuvers of the tide either from the park along the shoreline of the Saint John River or from the Falls restaurant where there is a spectacular view from the observation deck.
