Hours of operation July 1 to September 4, 2023

The visitor centre is open daily from 10 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm

Recommended visiting time:
Allow 30 minutes to explore the visitor centre. Plan slightly more than one hour to visit Grassy Island. It takes about 15 minutes each way by boat and about half an hour to walk the self-guiding trail.

Although the boat is usually available on demand, visitors are advised to call ahead (902-366-3136) to confirm whether the ferry is running. Delays or cancellations may be caused due to weather or personnel shortages. If the boat is running, its last departure time from the visitor centre is 3 pm.
