Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Grand Manan, Acadia

Jump to last reply

Planning to visit Maine, Nova Scotia, NB, and Grand Manan Island this fall. DH and I will fly to Boston on Sept 28; returning to Boston to fly home on October 13th. We were thinking about the following trip plan.

Day 1 - Flight arrives in Boston around noon - Drive to Calais or St. Andrews.
Day 2 - Drive to Saint John - take ferry to Digby.
Day 3 - Digby Neck - Brier Island and whale watching,
Day 4 - Drive to Halifax visiting Annapolis Valley on the way.
Day 5 - Halifax - Day drip to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, and Lunenburg.
Day 6 - Halifax - downtown, late afternoon drive to Truro and overnight.
Day 7 - Drive to Baddeck see Highlands Village/Baddeck area - overnight
Day 8 - Cape Breton
Day 9 - Cape Breton
Day 10 - Alma/Fundy
Day 11 - Hopewell Rocks/Fundy
Day 12 - Take morning ferry to Grand Manan Island
Day 13 - Grand Manan Island
Day 14 - Acadia National Park (have visited before)
Day 15 - Acadia (carriage) and afternoon drive to Boston
Day 15 - Fly home in the am

Any suggestions? Too much? We definitely want to experience Fundy, Cape Breton, Celtic culture and lots of seafood. We enjoy moderate hiking, history and want to spend some time on the water.
