At the neighboring provincial park, in turn, guests will find a network of trails winding through and past beaches, bogs, mixed woodlands, birdwatching blinds, geological formations, boardwalks, sedimentary rock cliffs, a rugged coastline, a lighthouse, and picturesque views of the Bay of Fundy, which offer opportunities to see breaching whales. A variety of whales and other aquatic mammals can be found in the waters surrounding the Fundy Isles and the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, including finbacks, humpbacks, minkes, North Atlantic right whales, white-beaked dolphins, grey seals, and harbor porpoises.
The village of Grand Harbour boasts a cafe, a pottery store, a scrapbooking store, and the Grand Manan Museum, all of which can be reached within a 20-minute walk or a three-minute drive.
