Brier Island in the Bay of Fundy.

Brier Island is a unique destination situated off the end of ancient basalt formation (Digby Neck) jutting out into the world famous Bay of Fundy.

This area is rich in marine life (Whale Watching, Atlantic flyway for migrating birds and has a resident seal colony) The area has been long visited by naturalists who regularly spot rare and endangered plants.

Rock hounds will be impressed with the many types of rock formations and can find quartz, agate jasper, amethyst and even zeolite.

An area truly unspoiled, off the beaten track and deeply steeped in maritime tradition. (Home of the famous Joshua Slocum, the first person to sail solo around the world in 1895 on the Spay a 37’ sloop.)

Brier Island offers many trails to explore both easy and challenging for hikers on short or extended visits.

The island is accessible by two short ferry rides from the end of Digby Neck.
