Come see us on Campobello!

After more than one year operating behind a close border, we are cautiously optimistic that our border might be reopened during late summer or fall. Meanwhile, we accept fully vaccinated persons or people from the same family group living in the same household.

As has been our practice, our van can pick you up at any place on Campobello. As soon as the border is open again we can also offer pickups in Lubec, Maine. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.

Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to f.ex. St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes. Should you arrive from the U.S. by marine vessel, please call 1-888-CANPASS (1-888-226 7277) for your border check-in. International Boat Arrivals can be processed at Welshpool Landing (welshpoollanding.com)

Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.

(Eastern Time+1hr.)

For reservations please call or email a day prior to your intended visit. Any later attempt to make a reservation may go unsuccessful as we might be on a tour just when you call.

COVID-19 INFO:
Travel advisory: COVID-19 border measures for Campobello Islan

News release

May 01, 2021 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. borderis being extended on a monthly basis. 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.

Gale Force Winds – The Big Storm

It was rattling and howling around the house – the predicted storm was upon us!
After lunch I decided to take a drive to Campobello’s southern most point. The storm was blowing out of the south-west and would be hitting the rocky cliffs full force. That would be worth to take a look at. So I took the Jeep and off I went through the park.

When I rounded the last bend before looking at Liberty Point I saw several huge waves covering most of sugarloaf rock in foamy seawater. I had never seen this kind of waves hitting here before so I was totally in awe. I tried to walk outside shooting pictures as I walked, but was hit by rain and the ferocious storm. So instead I quickly positioned the car with the passenger side window down and out of the rain, and did my pictures from the inside of the car through the open window. The wind blew all rain away from the car and not a single drop fell inside the car.

Every 5 minutes 3-4 big waves were rolling in. Then it could be much calmer again until the next volley came rolling in. The noise from the wind and the crashing waves was ear-deafening.  Way out in the Gulf of Maine I saw real wave monsters rolling along. My car was rocking like it was ready to take off across the wild sea.
