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.

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 little town of Lubec, Maine offers a very unique experience, called Summerkeys. Besides of many educational music courses, they now also have courses in photography and creative writing. This has been going on since 1992 and Summerkeys have contributed to developing tourism industry in a big way. “Summerkeys” was established by Bruce Potterton in honouring his mother Mary (1905-1993), who came from a very muscial family. She even helped in the start-up phase.

For us it is the weekly concerts in the  Congregational Christian Church that puts a highlight on our place on Campobello.
Every Wednesday we have the opportunity to drive 5km crossing the border to attend a wonderful concert, and yesterday the first concert of the seaon took place at 7:30pm EDT.

It was a piano concert performed by John Newell, a renown composer and pianist, born in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Listening to his performance I was marvelling how  a gifted composer can look out the window and transform dancing snow flakes into a musical adventure. (Claude Debussy)

Newell’s short piece called “Winter Winds” made me freeze when I envisioned a brutal winter storm howling across the sea. It’s like painting a picture but instead of paint and paintbrush the composer uses his feeling to put the keys on paper.

Summerkey’s concerts attracts a weekly crowd of adults 50+ years old. Rarely we see young people among the crowd.
