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 (

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.

Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.

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.

The Crown Jewels

One last time I will launch into praising this island by just showing off the crown jewels as they appear on a beautiful sunny day like today. I just couldn’t stay on my home turf this morning.

Somehow I just had a feeling that I could be missing something by not going out and taking in the well-known sites and views which captivated us one day back in 2009.

Yes, my first destination of the day was Raccoon Beach and Liberty Point. They are part of the Roosevelt Park Natural Area and need to be seen by any visitor. A visitor who is not being taken by the magic of these spots should not even consider Campobello as a destination. No, he/she should stay in the big city and enjoy traffic jams and noise.
Besides of a gentle splash originating of the waves hitting the coastal rocky shore and a gull crying loudly, there is not really any noise. At least wasn’t today, when I was standing there spell-bound. But stop….there WAS activity out there. A bunch of small fishing vessels went back and forth between the Coast of Maine and Campobello Island. What a sight!
Detouring over one of the internal park roads I ended up at the main highway atop of a hill, overlooking the International Bridge, Mulholland Light and Lubec.
It was then time to head back and stop at the post office to get our mail forwarded. Great service here at the local Canada Post office.

After lunch we went visiting with friends and neighbours who had not been coming by yet. Welcoming smiles all around! Life
is so good.

2 more crown jewels were to be visited in the afternoon. First
off was a visit to the Roosevelt Park Visitor Centre, where the flower beds were still in pretty bloom. Bea bought Eleanor Roosevelt’s Cookie book, a true collection of the most delicious cookie recipes. The cookies can be tasted by anyone when attending the “Tea with Eleanor” session arranged daily at the park.

The day would not be complete without visiting another crown jewel. It’s red and white and On The Rocks - the Head Harbour Lightstation, (1829) which is the oldest lighthouse in New Brunswick.

A couple of other day visitors had gathered for the first guided lighthouse tower tour of the day. A young man from the island was the guide. Lighthouse volunteers have done an outstanding job with decorating the interior of the keepers dwelling.

DSC_0109Who wouldn’t want to spend a night near
the ocean, waking up to a new day by
looking through the tiny windows.
Humpback whales are known to hang out in these waters and before you know it you’d
see one breaching the surface right in the
line of your view.

It is an intriguing place, which will never cease to captivate us.
