Between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia lies the Bay of Fundy and 22 miles off the coast of New Brunswick lies the island of Grand Manan, the largest of the Fundy islands. The island's only link to the mainland is a ferry that sails from New Brunswick. During this 90 minute crossing you can watch for porpoises and whales as the mainland fade into the distance. Driven by the famous giant tides of the Bay of Fundy, the water around Grand Manan is nurturing. The rich waters are home to an abundant variety of marine life and you will be astounded with the unspoiled natural surroundings and beauty of the island. Nutured by seacoast air, meadows burst into rich and vibrant colour and the island has been a meca for bird watchers for decades.
