It is hard to express natural beauty with words. Poets have tried, some have been more fortunate than others. Luckily, there are cameras today, so we can show pictures. But even pictures can miss their goal. So best way to see the natural beauty of Campobello Island is come and visit. And as many of our guests have said: Get a local to show you around. And that's precisely what Campobello Sightseeing has done for 7 years.
Let me introduce you to one of our most natural beaches, the one around lower Duck Pond. It's not a groomed beach. In the contrary, you will have to step over round and rolling rocks until your legs can relax on smoother ground. Your views will be filled with strewn-around drift wood, with old tree stumps and some dead tree trunks at the edge of the forest. And you can look across to Maine and a fishing boat may pass along. Seabirds and songbirds will be bountiful along your walk. Have you seen the little lake behind the beach? Ducks paddle around there, well that's before the ice covered it.
It's November 24 when we take our dog along here. One more month to Christmas Eve. The last days have been blistering cold, but today the sun is out, it's way above freezing and we have dressed too warm. A slight sea breeze greets us as we venture along. I pick up a round rock, it's smaller than a golf ball, and entirely round. The works of nature.
Remember, Campobello stays open year round. Call us for infos on how to get here, where to stay and what to do.

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 2019. 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.
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.
