Grand Manan is the largest of the Fundy islands. Located approximately 22 miles off the coast of New Brunswick, Grand Manan is accessible by the ferry service that operates from Blacks Harbour to North Head. The crossing takes about 90 minutes.
The island is about 15 miles long and 7 miles wide. There are several small B&Bs, inns, and a provincial campground. Grand Manan offers a glimpse into the fishing industry of the Bay of Fundy (herring and lobster), but one the main draws to the island is its whale-watching operations, which offer one of the rare chances to spot a near extinct northern right whale.
