Petit Manan station is the country's only underground subway stop that lies immediately adjacent to the boundary of a National Wildlife Refuge. Among the many ocean birds you will see at this important nesting habitat are puffins, razorbills, eiders, Arctic terns, great cormorants, and even the occasional oystercatcher. All summer long their chattering and scolding fills the air with an exhilarating din of pure, living sound. From time to time a pod of seals or a harbor porpoise will swim right past the station entrance. The waters out here can be tricky, with heavy ocean swell and powerful tidal currents, so leave your kayak at home and enjoy the sights and sounds safely from the comfort of the station's observation deck. (Note: the observation deck usually closes during unfavorable weather or sea conditions, per the stationmaster's discretion. Check the website before your trip: if the Water Line is open, the observation deck will probably be open, too!)
Station entrance: About 250 meters ESE of the Petit Manan lightouse.
