Property Description

The Sea Urchin Cottage is on the north end of beautiful Campobello Island, home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's beloved summer home and the museum and International Park which bear his name. Campobello Island is connected by bridge to Lubec, Maine, home of the renowned candy-striped West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the easternmost point of the United States.

Within walking distance of the picturesque East Quoddy Head Harbor Lighthouse, the Sea Urchin sits on a cliff overlooking its very own private sand beach! With the woods behind the cottage, the Passamaquoddy Bay in front of the cottage, and the cliffs rising up from the beach on each side of the cottage, the Sea Urchin offers unparalleled privacy and seclusion and an unbelievably beautiful view.

Whale Watching

Whale watching tours should be at the top of your list of activities on your Nova Scotia vacation. The best whale watching can be found throughout the province, from Cape Bretonâ??s world famous Cabot Trail, to the Bay of Fundyâ??s Digby Neck, and in the south, from the beautiful South Shore near Lunenburg to Metro Halifax. The tours will show you not just whales but also other Atlantic marine wildlife including seals and sea birds in their natural habitat.

Imagine sitting in a boat on the ocean, so close to a whale that you can look it in the eye! Nova Scotia has some of the worlds best whale watching cruise tours. The sight of whales lunging, diving, blowing and ând breeching in the ocean is an unforgettable vacation experience and truly awe-inspiring.

The Bay of Fundy is a marine paradise because the waters of the bay are important feeding grounds for many whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea birds. Watch humpbacks, the clowns of the sea frolic and breech, marvel at the huge finbacks, and meet the friendly minke (pronounced "ming key whales. If youre lucky, you might even spot the Atlantic White Sided Dolphins or the rare North Atlantic right whale (one of the rarest in the world).
