Dear Visitor to Campobello Island!
You may be coming from a big city or the great plains of the midwest. You may live in the mountains, a desert or in the deep woods. It'll all be different from coming here to the shores of Campobello Island, where nature is dominated by the North Atlantic ocean. Oh, it can be very gentle but also very rough. I know you'd be looking for sunshine and maybe a gentle breeze, and more than often we enjoy that kind of beautiful weather. But there are days when the winds pick up bringing dark clouds and rain, or the fog rolls in from the south swallowing the island. But regardless of what kind of surprise nature will offer to you, keep in mind that it will change again quickly. A grey morning doesn't mean the sun won't be out again in the afternoon. Speaking of the sun, you ought to see our sunsets. Take a boat ride at sunset or just sit at the Pier Waterfront Restaurant and watch the sun go down. Or we can get you up to Friar's Head from where the sunsets are spectacular.
The American book author Henry Beston was a master in describing nature, and though his experiences are from Cape Cod, they can be lived again here on Campobello Island.
“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach. I have heard them all, and of the three elemental voices, that of ocean is the most awesome, beautiful and varied.”
And it is not only in the summer that one can enjoy the island. The pictures in this posting were taken in December and January.
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.
Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.
