Grand Manan Island is located at the southwest end of the Bay of Fundy, 32 km (19 miles) from Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick, Canada and 15 km (9 miles) from the Lubec, Maine, United States. Grand Manan is 34 km (21 mi) long and has a maximum width of 18 km (11 mi) with an area of 137 km² (53 miles²).
Getting Here: The island can be reached by small charter flight (Atlantic Charters https://atlanticcharters.ca), private boat, or by one of the two passenger car ferries run by Coastal Transport Ltd., which make an average of four trips daily, year-round. Reservations are highly recommended, especially during the peak tourist season. For telephone reservations, call 506-662-3724; for on-line reservations: https://register.coastaltransport.ca. Reservations can be made several months in advance. The ferry ride is approximately 1.5 hours, and there are often opportunities to see several species of whales, harbour porpoise, basking shark, and a variety of sea birds on the crossing.
From the Ferry Terminal in North Head, the Museum is just over 11 km south on Highway 776, located on your left, directly across from the Grand Manan Community School. Parking is available beside the building, with the main entrance at the front and the entrance to the Elmer Wilcox Memorial Lecture Hall, where the evening programmes are held, beside the parking lot near the back of the building.
