IMPORTANT:

The ferries are timed so that if you continue driving from the first ferry you will automatically connect with the second one. YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME TO STOP. If you wish to stop on Long Island, you should do so on your return trip. It is about a 45-minute drive from Digby to the first ferry.

Time your departure from Digby so you can catch it on time. For example, if you are booked on a 1:30 whale watch, you must leave Digby by 11:45 at the latest to catch the first ferry at 12:30 and the next ferry at 1:00, arriving at Brier Island at 1:10. However, it is advisable to arrive an hour earlier to make sure you catch the trip. This will give you time to check into the office and take a driving tour of our island.

Brier Island, located off Digby Neck at the south-western tip of Nova Scotia, is surrounded by water teeming with marine life. Highly saline marine water flows into the Bay of Fundy along the Nova Scotia coast, bringing large amounts of zoo plankton, food for larger creatures.

Nutrients brought to the surface by strong tidal currents further add to the productivity of plankton in densities that attract large schools of herring and mackerel, which in turn are food for whales, dolphins, and seabirds. The waters surrounding Brier Island are a critical habitat for these marine species, chiefly as a seasonal feeding ground.
