In 2013, the Canadian Whale Institute and the Roosevelt Campobello International Park (RCIP) opened the Marine Life Interpretation Centre on Mulholland Point, Campobello Island.
The aim of the centre is to provide education on North Atlantic right whale biology, research and conservation, as well as local marine life on the Bay of Fundy shore. When open, the centre is hosted by RCIP interpretive staff. The site boasts an excellent view of the quaint town of Lubec, Maine, and harbour and grey seals as they congregate in the Lubec Narrows. Want to know how to tell these seals apart? Check this out. Onsite is the Mulholland Lighthouse (an octagonal lighthouse built in 1885 to assist boats and ships through the Lubec Channel), a short walking path, and several picnic tables.
Look for new displays and information materials this summer, thanks to support from the Fundy Community Foundation.
The centre is open seven days per week from late May through mid October (exact 2022 dates TBA ) Hours of operation are 10am – 6pm.
The Centre is located on the south end of Campobello Island adjacent to the FDR Memorial Bridge and the Mulholland Lighthouse.
