Guided Tours

The Friends of McNabs Island are pleased to offer free guided tours in both English and French this summer. During the rest of the year, guided tours are available upon request.

While on the island, you will discover the rich social and military history, from hearing tales of Bill Lynch’s fairgrounds to learning about the significance of the various military fortifications. Discover the island’s rich natural history which boasts over 200 species of birds and is an oasis for wildlife. You will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of hikes from an easy stroll on a well-cleared path to a more rigorous nature trek. 

There is no charge for these guided tours other than covering the transportation costs for our island guides. The cost is approximately $20 - $30 per person. Donations to the Friends of McNabs Island are always appreciated
