car required for Grand Manon?

Can you get by reasonably well without a car on the island? If not, is there a hotel/inn that you would recommend that is close to dining or whale watching trips?

This will depend on what you plan on doing while on the island. If you don't have a car you will be limited to the immediate area around North Head. There is accommodation such as the Shorecrest Inn, Marathon Inn and Compass Rose and some whale watching. The Inn at Whale Cove would be a challenging walk from the ferry.

Other whale watching tours leave from Seal Cove and there is other accommodation around the island To get around and see the other sights on the island you will definetly need a car.

I would agree that you need a car. I have visited just once several years ago and it's a unique and very charming place but what makes it great is that is very yester-year, not highly developed in a touristy kind of way and the charms of the island are quiet, scenic, and spread out. If you're spending a couple of days there and want to do more than just the bird/whale tours, you will want to explore a little and I think a car is necessary for this.

You definitely need a car. There are many interesting coves, cliffs, headlands etc around the island than can only be reached with a vehicle.
