At a Glance

One of the world’s secret gems, Grand Manan Island is a blend of unspoiled beauty, active fishing communities and warm, welcoming people. On this uncommon adventure away from the crowds, discover four Grand Manan lighthouses that steer navigators through treacherous shoals and fog. Home to the world’s highest tides, explore the ocean floor at low tide, learning about sea stars, crabs, periwinkles and baby lobsters. By land, soak up late-spring wildflowers — lupins, wild orchids and roses!
