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.

Help! Invasion On Campobello!

Intern. MarathonIt’s time for the 3rd. International Marathon from Lubec to Campobello Island. The Marathon starts at the West Quoddy Lighthouse in Lubec,ME then going over to our own Head Harbour light Station and back to Lubec.

We have in excess of 700 registered runners and each has brought family members and friends. About 4000-5000 people are currently in the region and have taken up every single hotel room, every single B+B capacity and every empty RV-lot in an area of minimum 100 miles south and east of us. To get a hotel room you’d have to travel 3 hrs south to Bangor,ME.

I intended to cross the border today, but had to turn around, as the waiting line-up of cars trying to get through Canada Customs was a mile long! It would have taken me at least 3 hours to get back to the island. I wonder what other island visitors must have thought when getting caught in that line-up. It was not a good day to travel to Campobello.

And I had other things to do as neighours had asked me to build a garden staircase from their deck. I finished the project around 4pm and after a nice coffee with them I retired on our porch.
