Just a five-minute drive to the south, guests will find Grand Manan Migratory Bird Sanctuary and Anchorage Provincial Park, which border each other. As its name suggests, the sanctuary provides a safe haven for a variety of waterfowl that migrate through or spend the winter in the area. Some of the species that can be found on and around its freshwater ponds include buffleheads, sanderlings, herring gulls, American wigeons, and American black ducks, the latter of which are the most common – with upward of 750 ducks having been spotted inhabiting the site at once.
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.

Both the park and the neighboring Grand Manan Migratory Bird Sanctuary provide ample chances to enjoy the birdwatching for which the island is renowned. About 275 species of birds have been sighted on the island, which provides habitats, wintering grounds, and migratory spots for land birds, shorebirds, and seabirds alike.
On the Bay of Fundy, guests can go kayaking on guided tours with Adventure High Inc. Whale watching tours are available through Sea Watch Tours, which also offers opportunities to see seals, puffins, and seabirds. Guests interested in fishing can catch a variety of fish in the bay, such as mackerel and herring.
