Situated in the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, the Grand Manan Archipelago must be explored to discover its rich treasure of natural wonders. From dawn to dusk, fill your days with nature; time goes by the tides. Here is a unique vacation spot or a place to call your own, prosperous and charming islands in the sea at their best. Two permanently populated islands, Grand Manan and White Head, are surrounded by numerous other islands and rocky shoals, including Machias Seal Island - a seabird nesting colony and an island whose ownership is still disputed between the United States and Canada. From spring nesting to fall migration birdwatchers can reach for their binoculars with delight. For the hardier, winter seabirding can bring immense satisfaction. Painters, photographers, rock hounds and hikers find new stimulation for their creativity. Whale watchers will be amazed at the sight of magnificent leviathons, including the rare North Atlantic right whale. Entrepreneurs will find great opportunities and a peaceful way of life. Drive or bike along 33 km or 18 miles of road on Grand Manan following the sea. Or take a short ferry ride to White Head and continue the adventure. Quaint immaculate clusters of homes charm you with their individuality. Leave the main road for fresh water lakes, meadows of wild flowers and miles of lush vegetation. You will find islands of rare geography - on Grand Manan long sand beaches to the east and craggy cliffs to the west; on White Head, quartzite cliffs, bogs and sand beaches. Good food and accommodations await you; you can dine on local cuisine, and camp or stay in comfortable surroundings. Make our Islands your Islands - your home away from home or maybe your home. You will arrive by sea and we will be waiting. Both Grand Manan and White Head Islands' very existence as communities lies deeply rooted in tradition and history, out of which springs a bond of love that is not easily shaken. Be forewarned! If this is your first time in the Grand Manan Archipelago, it will likely be the first of many. As one summer visitor so aptly stated: "I have been coming to Grand Manan for nearly 40 years and I have yet to see or do all that I would like to in one summer, so I keep returning year after year."
