This is a hidden gem in plain sight right in our very own harbour. To go from southern tip to very northern tip is the majority of a day hike. There's plenty of boating companies that will send you over and I will recommend anyone...More

Took the boat to McNabs Island. It was an amazing time. Beautiful trails and beaches, the old forts were amazing. Definitely takes more than 1 day to see everything. Bring water and snacks for when you are walking the trails!

Not much in the way of amenities, but if you want a peaceful, quiet time in nature, with great views this is your spot. Warning, don't get carried away, the Island is a lot bigger than it looks, pace yourself and stay close to the...More

The "Ferry" to McNabs is any one of a number of small operators who work from Dartmouth and Eastern Passage . Call Mike Tilley of mcnabs island tours, 902-465-4563, as I remember we went over and back for 42$ for 2 people or something like that. I'm sure it could be arranged with the dog. Remember that mcnabs is a provincial park and that Fido will need to remain on leash throughout the visit!
