Come see us on Campobello!
Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.
Our "Step-on Guide Service" has been popular for bus groups as well as private tours and we continue offering this great way to see Campobello in 2019. Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.
Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes.
Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.
(Eastern Time+1hr.)

Late February Winter

We have almost reached the end of February. Not much snow on the ground yet, but so much ice. Winter at the coast is never very stabile. Conditions and weather patterns change constantly. 

It seems that winter is mad, stomping around, having a fit, yelling, screaming. Slamming the door, it leaves. 
Two minutes later it comes back in and says: 

AND ANOTHER THING........

Coming here

Dear Visitor to Campobello Island!
You may be coming from a big city or the great plains of the midwest. You may live in the mountains, a desert or in the deep woods. It'll all be different from coming here to the shores of Campobello Island, where nature is dominated by the North Atlantic ocean. Oh, it can be very gentle but also very rough. I know you'd be looking for sunshine and maybe a gentle breeze, and more than often we enjoy that kind of beautiful weather. But there are days when the winds pick up bringing dark clouds and rain, or the fog rolls in from the south swallowing the island.  But regardless of what kind of surprise nature will offer to you, keep in mind that it will change again quickly. A grey morning doesn't mean the sun won't be out again in the afternoon. Speaking of the sun, you ought to see our sunsets. Take a boat ride at sunset or just sit at the Pier Waterfront Restaurant and watch the sun go down. Or we can get you up to Friar's Head from where the sunsets are spectacular. 

The American book author Henry Beston was a master in describing nature, and though his experiences are from Cape Cod, they can be lived again here on Campobello Island.

“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach. I have heard them all, and of the three elemental voices, that of ocean is the most awesome, beautiful and varied.” 
― Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life on the Great Beach of Cape Cod


And it is not only in the summer that one can enjoy the island. The pictures in this posting were taken in December and January.

You Wouldn't Be Able To Pay For This With Money

It is hard to express natural beauty with words. Poets have tried, some have been more fortunate than others. Luckily, there are cameras today, so we can show pictures. But even pictures can miss their goal. So best way to see the natural beauty of Campobello Island is come and visit. And as many of our guests have said: Get a local to show you around. And that's precisely what Campobello Sightseeing has done for 7 years. 

Let me introduce you to one of our most natural beaches, the one around lower Duck Pond. It's not a groomed beach. In the contrary, you will have to step over round and rolling rocks until your legs can relax on smoother ground. Your views will be filled with strewn-around drift wood, with old tree stumps and some dead tree trunks at the edge of the forest. And you can look across to Maine and a fishing boat may pass along. Seabirds and songbirds will be bountiful along your walk. Have you seen the little lake behind the beach? Ducks paddle around there, well that's before the ice covered it.

It's November 24 when we take our dog along here. One more month to Christmas Eve. The last days have been blistering cold, but today the sun is out, it's way above freezing and we have dressed too warm. A slight sea breeze greets us as we venture along. I pick up a round rock, it's smaller than a golf ball, and entirely round. The works of nature. 








Remember, Campobello stays open year round. Call us for infos on how to get here, where to stay and what to do.

A Day To Remember

After years of planning, it finally happened. 
Our small harbour Welshpool Landing received its first cruise ship. At 2:40pm Atlantic Time the "Grande Mariner" of Blount Small Ship Adventures pulled in to our wharf. 
We were all impressed about the great maneuvering Captain Peter DiMarco performed. There wasn't even the slightest vibration when the ship finally touched the float dock.

A mile stone was accomplished. Harbour Master and Marine Security Officer was on duty and after a short exchange of paperworks the first passengers emerged from the ship. some of them were driven directly to the Roosevelt Park, others had booked an island tour with Campobello Sightseeing.  
After 2 hours all passengers were brought back to the ship. Next destination would be the island of Grand Manan.

Of course, lots of onlookers came to see the ship and most were truly impressed by the view.

The Plastic Ocean

Plastic pollution has become the big problem of our time. Daily, hundred thousands of tons of plastic garbage is dumped into the oceans, where it is (very slowly) falling apart. It crumbles up into minuscule parts ending up in the bellies of marine wildlife. Gulls, whales, dolphins and all fish are "eating" plastic. Plastic is filling their digestive tracts making it impossible for real food to pass through. The results are deadly.

Every beach, every coastline is today polluted with plastic articles. Plastic bottles, shards of plastic and pieces of Styrofoam are common finds along the coast. Much of that is going to re-enter the ocean with the tides and winter storms.

CAMPOBELLO SIGHTSEEING will participate in a small way to clean up local beaches. Therefore we have scheduled a beach-clean-up-walk on Monday June 25 from 8:30am to 9:30am. You are invited to come along. Besides of transport to the beach, we will provide garbage bags and gloves for you.

Do what our dog Dixie is doing: Pick up plastic garbage on June 25. Meet us in the parking lot of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park for this free educational Beach Walk.
