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.

A Day To Remember

After years of planning, it finally happened. 
Our small harbour Welshpool Landing received its first cruise ship. At 2:40pm Atlantic Time the "Grande Mariner" of Blount Small Ship Adventures pulled in to our wharf. 
We were all impressed about the great maneuvering Captain Peter DiMarco performed. There wasn't even the slightest vibration when the ship finally touched the float dock.

A mile stone was accomplished. Harbour Master and Marine Security Officer was on duty and after a short exchange of paperworks the first passengers emerged from the ship. some of them were driven directly to the Roosevelt Park, others had booked an island tour with Campobello Sightseeing.  
After 2 hours all passengers were brought back to the ship. Next destination would be the island of Grand Manan.

Of course, lots of onlookers came to see the ship and most were truly impressed by the view.

The Plastic Ocean

Plastic pollution has become the big problem of our time. Daily, hundred thousands of tons of plastic garbage is dumped into the oceans, where it is (very slowly) falling apart. It crumbles up into minuscule parts ending up in the bellies of marine wildlife. Gulls, whales, dolphins and all fish are "eating" plastic. Plastic is filling their digestive tracts making it impossible for real food to pass through. The results are deadly.

Every beach, every coastline is today polluted with plastic articles. Plastic bottles, shards of plastic and pieces of Styrofoam are common finds along the coast. Much of that is going to re-enter the ocean with the tides and winter storms.

CAMPOBELLO SIGHTSEEING will participate in a small way to clean up local beaches. Therefore we have scheduled a beach-clean-up-walk on Monday June 25 from 8:30am to 9:30am. You are invited to come along. Besides of transport to the beach, we will provide garbage bags and gloves for you.

Do what our dog Dixie is doing: Pick up plastic garbage on June 25. Meet us in the parking lot of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park for this free educational Beach Walk.

Campobello - A Winter-Wonder-Land In January

When it snows on Campobello the Island changes scapes. You wake up one morning, and you are greeted by a dark blue sky and a blinding white landscape, the blue sea contrasting in the background. It is a transformation which needs to be experienced. It is not often it happens, but when it does everybody is out and about. We went to the beach, then followed a forest trail finishing off with a visit to Head Harbour Lightstation. Our pics are only inspirations. They will never give you the full idea. For that, you gotta come here. The motel is available and at the recently established Sally Anne's Cafe in Lubec you can enjoy a great breakfast from 6am, if you are up that early. 

Another choice is the historic Peacock House B+B in Lubec. So why wait. Check it all out now...then come back in the summer. Our Island Tours are going on year-round.

The Storm And The Old Brine Shed

Just a few weeks ago I was writing about the Little Town across the border and its past history of fishing and fish processing.
1-20170904_141149One of the really old buildings from that time was the brine shed, built on pilings high above the water. Occasionally we have seen the water of the high tides reaching to the floor boards of the building. And I think most people realized that it would only be a matter of time until it would be gone.

Now it is gone, indeed.

It was the winter storm of the past days which “took care” of it. The pilings gave way and the entire building started floating freely.

At first it settled on the beach in Lubec, but the next high tide floated it off. Under the bridge it went and then landed on the Canadian side below the highwater mark in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park.

It is sad that the old building where many people worked in the past, had to go this way.
