“Very interesting stop off”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The tidal generating station is a very interesting stop off if you are visiting the Annopolis Royal area. It is a oner of a kind power generating station in. North America, and anyone with the slightest interest in science will thoughlly enjoy seeing how the station harnesses the tremendous Bay of Fundy tides. Don't miss the trip down underground to see the turbine!

“Excellent Tour Guides”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

What an awesome place to stop. At first, I thought this was just for the guys (we were travelling as 2 couples). Wow, was I wrong. The information guide was incredibly informative and took us down the elevator to the "inside" of the dam. I learned so much. The guide spoke in plain English, easy to understand, and I came away (2 hours later) very, very pleased. It's definitely worth the time and effort to stop in here. Interesting story about the teenaged whale that made its way through the dam and how they had to "coax" it back out to the ocean.

“A great look at power generation technology”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We love visiting industrial attractions, and this one -- although small -- was a gem. There was an interpreter available, who gave a short explanation of the station and who was very knowledgeable about power generation and this technology in particular.

There is a nice observation deck both for viewing parts of the power plant and just for views in general. A pair of ospreys was nesting nearby and the observation deck allowed us an excellent watching opportunity.

The tourism personnel were also very helpful in suggesting attractions and restaurants in the area. This info centre is definitely worth the stop.
