Come over to Truro and witness a unique phenomenon in the World - the Tidal Bore!

"A tidal bore, often simply given as bore in context, is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current." (Source = Wikipedia)
