By far best place I've ever camped in Canada. Stayed 2 nights on a cliff site 10b
Originally we where only going to stay one but had booked for 2. After the first day we didn't want to leave. Woke up to the sound of whales breaching and blowing water through their water hole. Watched that for a good hour. Then a couple hours after watched a few more whales playing around Infront of our site. Throughout the day seals would play and eat fish, you could see the fish jumping out of the water.
At night you can hear the whales breaching and blowing. Listen for a rifle shot that's actually a whale hitting the water.
It was well worth the drive from Ontario. Wish I could drive there every year. I travel a lot and this island is by far the best place on earth for the nature buff. Should be on anyone's bucket list.
The island offers so much, people are so friendly, make sure to stop at the north head store to speak with the guy there he's so informative. Sold us a squid jigging lure but we couldn't stay out to late. Almost caught a seal instead.
Great place to watch the tide come in and out.
Campground is on an honour system, take what u need and pay later.
Lots of good eats on the island, everything is pretty much homemade
Visit Grand Manan Island you won't want to leave.
If you like Dulse this is one of the only places to get it, and the lobster is insanely good. And super cheap $9lb.
I have so much more great things to say about this place but long drive home and tired.
Just go!! You won't be disappointed at all.
Oooooo.... And the ferry across is great try the lobster roll yum yum!
Fish chowder is excellent. And you can see whales dolphins and bald eagle.
