If you’re looking to take a ferry ride, see some wildlife along the way and enjoy more stunning coastlines, a trip to Grand Manan might just be for you.
Take the Coastal Transport vehicle ferry to this rugged, unspoiled island. The 1.5-hour ferry ride will take you through a stretch of ocean known for its amazing marine life. Although you may be booking a scenic whale-watching tour once you arrive, you might just catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures - finbacks, humpbacks, minke, and the rare North Atlantic right whales - on your way to Grand Manan. Not only is this a fantastic area to see whales and other sea life, but it is also known as one of North America's best bird-watching areas.
The island is also packed with galleries, museums, and many historic locations to feed the mind. Don't forget to try some dulse, a local delicacy harvested by hand just off the coast of Grand Manan.
The first ferry to Grand Manan, departing from Blacks Harbour, leaves at 9:30am and the last boat returns at 7:15pm. Be sure to plan your fun-filled day around this schedule so you don't miss the ferry ride back to your home away from home at Beach Street Inn!
