About the ferry to Grand Manan Island

There are up to 7 ferry crossings (90-minute trip) a day in the summer from the New Brunswick (Canada) mainland at Black’s Harbour. This is the mainland departure port, half-way between Calais, Maine, USA, and the City of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.

Let the great memories begin when you step on board the ferry! As the Ferry approaches the Swallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan, look for tents on the cliffs. You are viewing the hiking park and the campsites.
