Travel advisory: COVID-19 border measures for Campobello Islan

News release

June 12, 2020 Campobello Island, New Bruswick

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Canada, while facilitating trade and essential travel. Given this, the CBSA is reminding New Brunswickers that travelling to and from Campobello Island through the United States (U.S.) is international travel and constitutes exiting Canada. To gain re-entry into Canada, travellers must report to a CBSA port of entry.

The temporary restriction on all discretionary travel at the Canada-U.S. border has been extended until June 21, 2020. All travel of an optional or discretionary nature, such as tourism and recreation, is covered by these measures.

While Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and Registered Indians under the Indian Act continue to enter Canada by right, they remain subject to COVID-19 entry screening measures and must comply with the mandatory 14-day requirement to quarantine or isolate if not exempt.

Exemptions to quarantine and isolation requirements are currently in place to ensure that critical infrastructure, essential services and economic supply chains continue between Canada and the U.S. Exemptions are also in place for residents of Campobello Island who are asymptomatic and must cross the border on a day-to-day basis for work, or to obtain essential goods and services. These exemptions do not apply to residents of mainland New Brunswick who wish to visit Campobello Island.

Travellers are required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering upon entry to Canada and while in transit to isolation or quarantine, unless the mask or face covering needs to be removed for security or safety reasons. Travellers presenting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be referred to a Public Health Agency of Canada staff member for further assessment.

Season is over

A busy Campobello season is over. We are proud to say that every one of our visitors being on the sightseeing tour has left the tour as a very happy traveler.
We thank you all for coming. Come again and bring your friends. And don’t forget: Campobello Sightseeing is on Tripadvisor and you may leave your comment there.

For the 2013 season Campobello Sightseeing is going to partner with a Campobello Boat Operator. We have developed a new very exciting tour alternative for Campobello visitors.

First of all there will be a daily boat transport between Campobello Island and the City of St.Andrews on the Canadian Mainland. There will be a tour in the morning and one for the afternoon. Both tours will offer lunch in one of our restaurants as an option. People who already stay on Campobello, will have the opportunity to  travel by boat to St.Andrews to spend the day in “Canada’s most beautiful town”. Every tour to Campobello will include options to see the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, the Head Harbour Light Station and the most beautiful view points from our coast.

In fact we are very excited about this new tour alternative and can hardly wait until next seasons start.

We have a couple of nice new photo shots of the island and hope you can enjoy them.

Have a great winter and check back here again for updates.

The Caledonian Sky was visiting Campobello Island

 It is certainly not a huge ship, but nevertheless it was a great thing for the Island when the “Caledonian Sky” was making headway towards the new 400sqft. floating dock of the Roosevelt Park today. Of course she had to anchor outside about half a mile from shore, but the island tender brought 110 British Cruise guests ashore. We shuttled them up to the cottage where they all milled about. And after taking “The Tea with Eleanor”, they were ready to get onboard for a hopefully nice dinner and a the usual evening entertainment. The ship is on a voyage along the coast and will be continuing southward to Washington DC.

Unfortunately they experienced technical trouble under ways when the generator wasn’t working right. Everybody had to be taken off the ship and flown to Halifax where they had to be accommodated. After a speedy repair the ship went to Lunenburg,NS where the passengers went onboard again.

While we were waiting for the arrival of the ship, Bea went around the area and took pictures. It was another beautiful day and the British tourists seemed to be extremely happy.  If you wonder about the price tag of this 14-day cruise: It is CAD15,000/person. Bon Voyage!

Soaring Eagles and more

While I was out and about with island visitors, Bea went on a photo trek to find the eagles, which we really have a lot of this year. However, that alone doesn’t mean that you just can snap off nice pics of them. You gotto have the right position, the right equipment, the right light and still a lot of luck. And even if you’ve got all that you still need a computer and a picture editing software to make them presentable.

Here’s what she got:

This morning we woke up to a very crystal clear air, and a deep blue sea adorned with white caps.

DSC_0351-miDSC_0397-mi It was the first morning that I had to grab my jacket before going the doggy walk with Molly. After all the warm days it felt almost frosty outside. But Molly has a thick fur and felt right at home. We have often thought that she is definitely more a winter dog than one for the summer. And as she gets older (this Xmas she’s 10yrs) she seems to mind too high temps like never before.

With the nearing fall season, sunsets are also getting more dramatic. And like most people we LOVE to take pics of it. 
Thanks for looking!
