White Head Island is accessible several times a day from Grand Manan Island at Ingalls Head via the MV William Frankland Ferry. The crossing (approximately 20 minutes) is free of charge. The ferry carries 45 passengers and 9 cars. White Head Island is a quiet fishing community of approximately 180 residents, mainly fishermen and their families. The 6-km (4-mi.) road goes around two-thirds of the island. A lighthouse, a sandy beach and a rocky coast can be found on the "back" of the island. This is an excellent location for birdwatching, hiking, biking and touring.
