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 limited’s ferry, usually lasting about 1.5 hours, but don’t let that discourage you. This stretch of ocean is known for its beautiful whales and sea life. Although you may be booking a Scenic whale watching tour once you arrive, never miss the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Finbacks, Humpbacks, Minke and the rare North Atlantic Right Whales and many more. Not only is this a fantastic area to see whales and the like, but many people travel from all over the world to bird watch.

This area is also packed with galleries, museums and many historic locations to feed the mind as well as the senses as you try the local treat Dulse, a fresh delicacy.

The ferry does start its day at 9:30am and the last boat is back at 7:15 so make sure to plan out your fun-filled day to make the ferry ride back to your home away from home!
