Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick
 
My wife and myself are thinking about going to Grand Manan for a few days the middle of July. Anyone with suggestions on where to stay and what to do while there would be appreciated ! St Andrews by the sea would be the next stop after that.

On the Island I know of only one.
Hole-in-the-Wall Park & Campground
42 Old Airport Rd
Grand Manan, NB E5G 1A9

In St Andrews we are staying at
Kiwanis Oceanfront.

Can't tell you much about either as we will be up there in mid June but you need to make reservations ASAP.

Hmmm now this looks like a COOL place to visit! Whale watching? Woot!

Now for the $1,000 question - what do they charge for your Rig to be transported over on the ferry?

Thevosmans - here is a link to the hole-in-the-wall campsite -- you can reserve online :)

Never mind...Ferry rates link is here:

Looks like $8.20/M + $32 CDN for your TV & Trailer

Yes that ferry trip is expensive.
Now look at the long ferry from Sydney Nova Scotia to Newfoundland for a 54 ft motorhome and tow car. That's over $1,600 one way and its 17 hour trip.

I have the reservations made for the campground on Grand Manan Island booked for July 9th to the 11th. Ferry is booked also. For the ferry it about $130.00 which I consider reasonable for a 32' fifth wheel, tv and 2 adults for a 1.5 hour sailing.

That is pretty reasonable considering. For me though $270.00 worth of ferry fees would merit a slightly longer stay - then again, look where I would be coming from :roflblack:

I can attest that that is a VERY good deal for a ferry ride. As much as I would love for many of the wonderful people on this forum to come and visit the beautiful and scenic island I call home, I just couldn't ask anyone to pay the outrageous prices to get here :mad:. To ride ONE way on our lovely :rolleyes: bc ferries it would be more than double that price. I priced it out to come over to the island with 2 adults and a tow vehicle/trailer that is 55ft and it is $331.20 :eek:. And yes the same sailing time of an hour and a half.

When we retire 6 Actual (DW) and I are planning a trip that basically goes up to Maine (that will take 3 days from Alabama :D), spend some time in Nova Scotia & New Brunswick, then work our way across your country and exit somewhere south of Vancouver :)

Sooke, BC? Not familiar with your location; are you part of the Queen Charlotte Islands?

Nice trip! But you'll pay 20% more for gas in Canada.
