Come see us on Campobello!
Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.
Our "Step-on Guide Service" has been popular for bus groups as well as private tours and we continue offering this great way to see Campobello in 2017. Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.
Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes.
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.

When Campobello Was A Famous Tourist Resort

“Newport and Bar Harbour were attracting the wealthy who sought relief from the city’s oppressive heat and humidity and had both the time and resources to enjoy these new summer colonies. They were designed as exclusive havens for members of the upper classes and their social peers. Campobello met these criteria, but it was geographically more remote than the other resorts, and it was designed to be simpler and less formal. More emphasis was placed on the rural and rustic qualities of the island and less on elaborate homes and social pomp.These features distinguished Campobello from other retreats”.

And that is as valid today as it was back in the heydays of the upper crust spending extended periods of summer on the island.
