GRAND MANAN ISLAND Travel Guide 🦞 | MUST-VISIT Island in ATLANTIC CANADA! 🇨🇦 (New Brunswick)




Hey guys, we’re Samuel and Audrey and today we’re bringing you to Grand Manan, an idyllic island in New Brunswick, Canada, set in the Bay of Fundy, quite close to the border with Maine.

This was a family road trip we planned with Sam’s parents, George and Debbie, and some of their best friends, Joan and Gary.

There are so many things to do in Grand Manan, and together we spent 4 days road tripping across the island visiting lighthouses, feasting on fresh lobster and fish and chips, exploring the historic smokesheds in Seal Cove, birdwatching in Castalia Marsh, taking a side trip to White Head Island, and catching some spectacular cliff-top sunsets.

Our trip to Grand Manan was laid back with lots of time outdoors in nature, and now we want to share it with you. We think this is a must-visit island in Atlantic Canada, and we’ll show you why in this Grand Manan travel guide!

If you’re planning a trip to Grand Manan in the summer, we’d suggest going on the Grand Manan Coastal Transport website and booking your ticket for the crossing ahead of time. This is a popular summer destination in New Brunswick, so the ferry can get busy.

As for cost, you have to pay for your vehicle plus each individual passenger. It was $35.80 for the car and an additional $12 per passenger when we travelled.
