Reversing Rapids (200 Bridge Rd)
Every 12.5 hours you can observe a unique natural phenomenon when the Saint John river changes its flow in reverse. This process happens because of great difference of the water levels between the low tide and the high tide. While the water gradually goes away, the river forms rapids and whirpools. The river empties the Bay of Fundy and forms strong current which slows down after the tides begin to rise again. The continuing rise of the tides causes the reversing of the current.
