Our small, friendly fishing village is perfectly positioned on the world-famous tidal waters of the Bay of Fundy. With a population of just under 1,000, our strong sense of community is readily evident to visitors to the area, everyone knows your name!
The nutrient-rich waters of the Bay of Fundy have made Blacks Harbour the proud home to several of the most prominent, branded seafood companies in North America, including Connors Bros., Clover Leaf Seafoods Company and Cooke Aquaculture, voted one of the Top 50 Best Managed Companies in Canada.
Get a taste of the marine life with a sampling of the wondrous array of fresh seafood products available at your fingertips: freshly caught or smoked Atlantic Salmon; tasty sardine snacks; succulent lobster; and of course, the local favourite, Dark Harbour dulse – said to be the best in the world!
The nautical sites and tastes of this region are not just confined to the mainland, from here, hop on one of the daily ferries that sail from Blacks Harbour to the largest island in the waters of the Bay of Fundy, Grand Manan Island. Back in Blacks Harbour you can hike, bike, or kayak to take in more natural beauty, or just relax and wander the coastline looking for seashells or that special piece of sea glass, gleaming in the sun.
If you are seeking your personal experience with the Bay of Fundy, visit Connors Bros. Nature Preserve at Pea Point. This 43 hectare preserve features 2 kilometres of undisturbed coastline within the Fundy Coast Eco-district. Stop by the Blacks Harbour Heritage Museum and learn more about the fishing industry as it evolved and the families that made the area thrive.
