There is plenty to keep everyone occupied with lots of fun and entertainment at the interactive centre. Hands on learning approach and interesting facts about the Canadian history in the area of New Brunswick - definitely worth a visit. There are also additional activities to discover on Beaubears island and to enjoy such as guided walking tours, boats tours etc ferry times are frequent but only in the summer months check ahead of planning a trip

Canoeing on the Miramichi River around Beaubears Island on a beautiful day was wonderful. The two guides were friendly and very knowledgeable. Their stories made history come alive. We even saw a red fox and two bald eagles. The interpretive centre reinforced their stories. Several weeks ago we also attended the Peter Mitchell picnic on the island. The food was great and the historical characters attending in period costumes was a bonus.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the interpretive Centre and to Beaubears Island. The interpretive centre is worthy of a good hour's visit, alone. The guides all did a great job, those in costume, and those you weren't. Sean, the director, was very accommodating, as he tried to sort out the errors that were made when I booked and paid for my tour tickets online. That was the only glitch in what was a wonderful experience. The boat ride to both islands was very enjoyable. You have to use your imagination, when you visit the island. Close your eyes, listen to the guide and the costumed characters. Picture what Beaubears would have looked like as a bustling shipbuilding community, back in the 1800s. Or picture the poor Acadians and their plight, when they were left to starve at Wilson's Point, after having escaped the Deportation of 1755. I commend the Friends of Beaubears Island for their devotion to preserving our local history and making it come alive for the benefit of us all. I will return!!

A pleasant experience and learned a lot about history. The interpretation centre is well laid out. The free guided tour provided with the entrance to this Parks Canada site is very informative. The area is beautiful. They also have tours to the island for an extra fee. It is well worth the visit.
