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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Stormy Day On The Bay
S
till no snow but lots of wind. It looks like the old year won’t go without getting us some stormy weather. The wind direction was Southwest and that meant that a visit to Liberty Point could be interesting.

The sun broke through storm clouds when I fought my way out of the car. Standing still was not easy. I tried to stay out of the worst wind casts by hiding behind some spruce trees while snapping off some pictures.

While the waves seemed powerful here, it would be peanuts compared to what was going on out in the middle of the bay between the Island of Grand Manan and Campobello and the coast of Maine. Luckily, no ship was out there to brave the wild sea.

Then I drove over to South Beach along the Duck Ponds. It was nearly High Tide and the water ran high onto the beach.

FROZEN

The Beauty of FROZEN

1-DSC_0790
It’s another week to Christmas and Campobello experiences two cold days in a row. A strong wind, almost a full storm, is blowing in from the North-West. At the same time the day temperature hovers around 5F, which wouldn’t make me freeze so bad if it wasn’t for the wind chill of minus 29F which I feel straight through several layers of winter clothing. Frost smoke also called ice fog is drifting in from the water. The wind beats it into the trees leaving a heavy layer of frosting on every little branch.

I am in my van and I am watching the beach. Across from me is the late afternoon sun setting behind Friar’s Head. Reluctant to fully roll down the side window, I snap off a picture through a small gap. It’s wild out there. Wild and cold.
1-DSC_0800When I am done, I drive over to Mulholland Light. But now the sun is already behind the town. Lubec appears in a cold bluish light. We are in the middle of low tide and the water rushes through the channel. The seals are still there, right below me in the cold water, waiting for fish coming by.
