Brier Island Experience

Brier Island is one of those special places that provides paddling opportunities like no other. This location will draw the adventurer to the end of the road! As you travel down the long narrow Digby Neck you will first take a ferry across Petite Passage to Long Island.  As you travel the length of Long Island you will quickly realize you are heading somewhere extraordinary.  One last ferry across Grand Passage and you will land at Brier Island and quickly become immersed in this idyllic Island poking out into the mouth of the Bay of Fundy.  The largest tides in the world have traveled between these islands shaping the land and creating a paddling paradise.
