The weather changes dramatically on Grand Manan from day to day. Please call 506-321-0944 to confirm your tour with Heather the day before your trip.
Arriving on Grand Manan
The ferry ride takes 1.5 hours to reach Grand Manan. Once docked on the island, unloading the ferry and travelling to us could take 15 to 20 minutes. Please factor this extra time so you won’t be late for your departure with us.
Please consult the Coastal Transport ferry schedule and plan your arrival. Our tours start promptly and we don’t want to leave without you!
Sea it for yourself
There are so many things to see on our tours! But sometimes we can’t get too close. In those cases we recommend binoculars and cameras to enhance the experience. Bring them both! Please remember we are going on the ocean so equipment may get wet. We advise also bringing a water-proof bag.
Very Grand Manan
You never know what to expect on the Bay of Fundy. Several species of whales are in our waters including Minke, Finback, Humpbacks and North Atlantic Right whales. There are also Thresher sharks, Porbeagle sharks and Basking sharks. Finally along the coast there are seals, porpoises, bald eagles and numerous other sea birds.

Weirs are huge heart shaped fish traps collecting herring in mind-boggling amounts. They are made of posts and thousands of square feet of net and twine forming a container. When a Weir is full, the fish are collected into a purse and literally vacuumed into holding tanks on an adjoining boat. The herring is typically canned for sardines or used as lobster bait.

Grand Manan is easily reached by the Coastal Transport ferry in Black’s Harbour, N.B. Bring your car or leave and come over on foot! Lambert Family Adventures is only a five minute walk from the arrival dock. With a car you can explore the island from one end to the other.
