Island Cruises Whale-Watching

Join Captains Mac and Rob of the Campobello Whale Rescue Team for an exciting 2½-hour whale-watching tour on the Bay of Fundy. Our tour departs from Head Habour Wharf on beautiful Campobello Island, only minutes from Head Harbour Light Station and the home of the whales. Our gift shop and ticket office are located at 2295 Route 774, Wilsons Beach.

As we search the coastal waters for whales, seals, Bald eagles and seabirds, we will also see fishing boats, herring weirs, aquaculture sites and some of the most beautiful coastal scenery found anywhere.

Roosevelt Campobello International Park

The late U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt spent many enjoyable vacations at his summer home on Campobello Island in New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy. His magnificent 34-room residence is today the centerpiece of Roosevelt Campobello International Park, preserved as a memorial and a symbol of the close friendship between Canada and the United States. Roosevelt Campobello International Park is the only park in the world owned by the peoples of two countries and administered by a joint commission in their name. Mulholland Lighthouse was built in 1885, and resides within the park.

St. Croix Island International Historic Site

Located on St. Croix Island, this international historic site celebrates the start of a European presence in North America. The winter of Pierre Dugua’s French expedition from 1604 to 1605 was especially brutal, causing the group of eighty to fall to less than half. Spring brought new hope, as the local Native Americans traded food and their health began improving. Eventually the expedition moved on, but the French presence in North America had begun. The site explores the events and settlement that took place during the historically significant winter and provides a self-guided trail with displays and bronze figures of the French and Passamaquoddy.
