Hole in the wall campground/bay of fundy

My hubby and I are thinking of going to grand manan next summer and staying at the hole in the wall campground. I have 3 questions:

1.) is it accurate that August and September are the best months to see whales?

2.) any opinions on which cliff edge sites are the coolest/best?

3.) how many days should we allow on the island to do a decent amount of hiking and kayaking? We are splitting our time between here and most likely fundy national park.

Thanks!

Hi ashbru

August and September are very good in the lower Bay of Fundy for whale watching. My preference is mid-August to the end of the month. You have a good chance for Northern Right Whales who are the "stars of the show" there, due to their rarity. Good chances also for Fin Whales [which are enormous...], Minkes and Humpbacks, plus White-sided Dolphins and Harbor Porpoise. This is also a very good time for large numbers of seabirds.

We have not camped at Hole in the Wall, so can't comment on that.

Our shortest visit to Grand Manan has been 3 days and our longest 8 or 9 days. I suggest about 5 or so days to get a good feel of the place and do some exploring/ hiking /kayaking.

Grand Manan is wonderful place for a nature focused vacation - you will love it.

cheers

Jerry

Thanks so much for the advise! Mid-August sounds good, we will probably just do that. Have you kayaked there too? I think it'd be cool to kayak and see a whale. :-)
