Beautiful outlook. Interesting phenomenon. Can walk from cruise pier, but it's an easy 4 miles on a paved trail along the river.

I took visitors to see the Reversing Falls. They were amazed with the power of the water and the changes as the tide came in. A must if you are in Saint John.

We went for both tides about an hour before peak. We walked to all of the overlooks and saw otters, ducks and amazing water flow. This was so fun to watch.

It wasn't my favorite but you should do it once. The film was informative and all the staff wonderful. The best part was watching a person take a single passenger against the current. The elderly man looked like he completed an item on his bucket...More

We went on our own from our cruise ship. The local information desk at the port told us this was a must see and we could walk it. Well after an exhausting 1/1/2 hour hike we made it. Then we found out that the "reversing'...More
