Irving Ecocentre - Bouctouche Dune
A not-for profit project aiming to protect one of the last great dunes on the northeastern coast of North America. The Eco-Centre offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the dune and its ecosystem. The fine sand dune extends 12 km into Bouctouche Bay and was created by the constant movement of sand due to the wind, tides, and ocean currents since the last ice age. The dune, estimated to be 2,000-years old, changes shape with every major storm. It serves as a habitat for a wide variety of aquatic plants and animals, and shore and migratory birds, making this a major ecological site. Located 40 minutes away from Shédiac and Le Griffon Bed &Breakfast.

The Tidal Bore
A scenic phenomenon caused by the Bay of Fundy tides, the Bore occurs twice daily. The higher waters in the Bay cause the water in the placid Petitcodiac River to roll back upstream in one wave of up to one metre. At low tide the muddy river bottom is often visible, but within one hour of the arrival of the Bore, the water level rises some 7.5 meters (25’) to fill the river to its banks. Located 25 minutes away from Shédiac and Le Griffon Bed &Breakfast.
