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.

Big Storm knocked Out Power After 14Hrs. it Is Restored But Trees Are Down, Chainsaws Are Going And We Have A High Surf.

It took almost 14 hours until the cutting crew from the DOT had removed all the trees which had fallen across the power line. The storm had hit Campobello last night with extreme gusts of up to 100km/h (62mph)

When we were checking out all around the island there were still low-hanging power lines a couple of spots.  The damage in the woods is substantial. One tree is still threatening to fall across the library building and a neighbour got 2 trees in his yard one stopping just short of his house, the other damaged his car.

Approaching the beaches we were met by an ear-deafening growl from the surf.1-DSC_0120
Even though we didn’t have a hurricane yesterday, the surf had reached all across the parking lot at Herring Cove leaving tons of seaweed in his wake.

The surf was still high enough to make a walk along the beach impossible. In fact it reached all the way up to the grass.

The Bay of Fundy was still covered in white caps and the mist of the crashing waves was obscuring a clear view of the coast across.

Even though a storm like this is causing a lot of damage, it also gives a mighty impression of the unleashed power of nature.

As the sky was clearing up and the sun broke through the contrast of the deep blue waters and the white caps was stunning.
