The weather on the south shore of New-Brunswick is sometimes unpredictable. They seem to get less sunny days then inland. Don't be discouraged if the morning starts off with fog, it often lifts later in the morning. Just to be safe make sure to have nice warm clothes.

Favorite thing: Deer Island is located in the southwest corner of Canada's Maritime Provinces, in New Brunswick and on the border with the American state of Maine. It is located at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, site of the world's highest tides with a variation of 53 feet (16 m) at it furthest reaches in Nova Scotia.
The second map gives a closer overview of New Brunswick's Fundy Isles, with the major ones being Grand Manan, Campobello and Deer. Russell and I biked the largest of these in 2004, as detailed in my 'Grand Manan' page. This time, we decided to tackle the two smaller ones, taking a total of 3-days to bike from Pennfield Ridge on the mainland and using ferries to reach both Deer and Campobello Islands as shown by the 'purple' path along the US-Canada border.
The third map is a closer view at the Deer Island portion of our trip, showing where we first biked along the north coast and the small inlet of water that we waded across while dealing with the 'Piranha' clams! Our accommodations on Deer Island was at the 'reddish' dot to the left of the words 'Deer Island'. This map also gives a closer view of the ferry routes from both mainland NB and between Deer and Campobello Islands. The blue dot off the southern tip of Deer Island is where the 'Old Sow' whirlpool is located.
