The Reversing Falls is a fascinating natural phenomenon located in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. It occurs where the Saint John River meets the Bay of Fundy, renowned for having the highest tides in the world. What makes the Reversing Falls unique is the powerful tidal currents that cause the river to flow upstream temporarily, creating a reversal of its natural direction.

Visitors to the Reversing Falls can witness this mesmerizing spectacle from several vantage points, including from Fallsview Park or various viewing platforms along the river's edge. The best time to experience the Reversing Falls is during the changing tide, typically around high tide and low tide, when the contrasting currents create the most dramatic effects. Additionally, adventurous visitors may have the opportunity to experience the Reversing Falls up close through guided boat tours that navigate the turbulent waters.

The Reversing Falls is not only a natural wonder but also holds cultural significance for the indigenous Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people, who have long inhabited the region and have their own stories and legends associated with the phenomenon.
