Pose with a larger-than-life crustacean at Shediac's Giant Lobster. Climb the staircase up this lobster statue and take in the little fishing town whose traditions it celebrates. Artist Winston Bronnum's 11 x 5 m (35 x 16 ft) sculpture in concrete and steel also includes displays explaining how it was constructed and moved to the spot. Take a stroll around the area to find quaint souvenir shops and picnic tables. The popular, easily accessible monument includes a parking spot and onsite restrooms. Plan my Shediac trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • If you are arriving in Shediac, one cannot stop at the giant lobster at the entrance to the town. The photo is required, after which the next stop is in one of the excellent restaurants to taste it from life!

  • Stopped by when travelling out east. Great spot to get a quirky photo. There are some cute little shops behind the Lobster and behind that is a water front with swing benches.
  • Great place for family photos. Climb up and pose with the massive lobster sculpture. Quite a popular tourist spot with tour busses occasionally stopping by. There are a few small shops and a local tourist bureau where you can get maps and advice from local guides. Stop by the boardwalk just down the road for great lobster and an amazing view of the harbour
  • The word Giant doesnt do it justice. Its HUGE! As anyone that goes to Shediac, you need a picture with the giant lobster. In Oct 2017 the roads were heavily under construction. All the little store fronts next to the lobster were closed except one. The closes one i believe, but it is far over priced for everything. There are nice couple swings behind the lobster. Which was very relaxing in the warm autumn.
  • My son loves to visit the lobster when we are in Shediac. For Christmas they put a giant Santa hat on the lobster. He thought that was just great.
  • It is a giant lobster. There are stairs up to it so you can take great pictures with the lobster like I did. They have a write up about the lobster but it has been defaced so not super easy to read. It is a very beautiful area with a view of the water.
