Cape Enrage

Abseil Cape Enrage

Smashed by turbulent water rushing over a shallow reef, Acadian sailors christened these 50 metre-high cliffs staring over the Bay of Fundy. Along with the thick fog, strong winds and boiling seas, Enrage seems about right. When its lighthouse was automated in the 1980’s, a group of Moncton schoolteachers decided to save the Cape, restoring its old buildings, building an interpretive centre, a fantastic restaurant, and offering abseiling, ziplining and kayaking adventures.
