The Lubec area is blessed with a wealth of lighthouses, best
seen and appreciated by sea. Whales spend their summer
feeding just off shore, seals swim in the channel known as
the Narrows between Lubec and Campobello Island, and eagles
soar majestically overhead in the clear, salt-tinged air --
a photographer's and painter's paradise.

Marvel at the
massive tides of twenty to twenty-five feet rush through the
Narrows and surrounding bays.
Ride on the 'Old Sow' whirlpool with Capt. Ralph -- the
largest natural whirlpool in the western hemisphere & one of
five signiciant whirlpools worldwide. Situated just west of
Deer Island, New Brunswick, Canada and northeast of Eastport,
Maine, in the Western Passage of Passamaquoddy Bay, the OLD
SOW forms in a huge area of facinating tidal turbulance. The
OLD SOW and her 'piglets' wander around a bit when active,
veiwed best on flood tide, just west and north of the southern
tip of Deer Island, NB, Canada. During ebb tide, or outgoing
tide, the OLD SOW can be seen further south and is less
active. During high spring tides with strong winds, a larger
funnel can be seen.
passion for the unexpected! Tour the unmatched beauty of our
craggy, rockbound coastline and sea teaming with wildlife as
diverse as eagles, osprey, whales (finback, minke, humpback
and Northern Right), seals, and porpoise.
Don't forget --
bring sunscreen, hat, warm clothing (even on a warm day, the
sea air can be cooler), binoculars... Pack a camera,
sunscreen, binoculars and video equipment. All weather
decisions will be made the morning or afternoon of your
scheduled charter. If the captain feels the weather conditions
are unsafe, then we will gladly reschedule your trip.
