Tons of fishing boats you can go on and go out and see whales. You can also go up to the coast guard light house and see whales from their light house exactly where the fishing boats go. There is a hike where you can see seals and birds.

The trip here was so much fun! 2 ferry(s). One from East Ferry to Tiverton, Long Island - not USA - this is Nova Scotia! Another ferry from Freeport to Westport on Brier Island. If you are into ferry(s), it's just ice cream on the trip to Brier. The road to the Light house on the Brier goes from asphalt to gravel. Take your time and enjoy the view on the way. Another trail and lighthouse worth going to see. Beautiful all around AND you get to take the same 2 Ferry(s) to get back to Digby. Everyone we met on this trip was beautifully helpful and friendly!

Went over to Brier for a Whale watching tour on a rib, which was excellent, and stayed the night. It is a lovely island and well worth the two ferry rides to get there. Being remote expect inflated prices, but it is worth it.

Breathtaking scenery, fascinating heritage, abundant wildlife, great hospitality. I can't wait to go back next summer or fall. Definitely recommend the whale watch.

It's a great place to visit for a day, two short ferry rides, which are usually $7 CDN each for your return trips but this year they were not charging anything due to COVID.
A beautiful, small quiet island with some hiking trails to explore, we hiked down to one cove where we enjoyed watching seals, whale watching tours are available, a few lighthouses as well.
You can even spend the night at Brier Island Lodge or just stay for a meal.

I make a trip every year to the island to lead a bird outing and also for a pelagic. The island was wonderful. No one was nasty except for one woman. We had stopped to watch some feeders from the road. This woman was extremely nasty. I had been watching this particular feeder for about 30 years without any negative effects. Not sure what was happening there. Saturday morning we had a phenomenal fallout of birds , which made the trip exciting. Visiting the local hotspots is also a treat for the scenery and it is always great to show people new places on the island that they have not seen before. The only problem with this time of the year on the basis of tourism, is that there is no place to eat. There is only one place that you can get meals and this is overpriced and poor service. Other than that the island and the people are great.
