Here's what people are saying about our birding adventures...
“This is a Road Scholar program to put on your top priority to-do list! The instructor is outstanding and the island is beautiful. Do you want to see humpbacks? Look for Foggy and her calf in the Bay of Fundy! And you do not want to miss “chain-sawing” with the Puffins south of Grand Manan Island. Highly recommend this one!”
“Excellent birding program with varied locations for the most species of birds. I highly recommend this program! I added three life birds to my list! The instructor is terrific birder and makes the experience quite enjoyable.”
Set in the context of the shorebird migration, experience the natural beauty of Grand Manan at the pace of bygone times aboard a 56-foot pilot ketch during this exceptional whaling and birding adventure. Grand Manan’s Fundy Bay is one of the top ten whale watch destinations in the world, with sightings of basking sharks, dolphins and tuna possible, too. Spot a multitude of seabirds including phalaropes, shearwaters, petrels, puffins and gannets, and experience the amazing Fundy tides from a floating slip.
