Tabusintac

Tabusintac

In the southwestern Gulf of St. Lawrence about 50 km northeast of the City of Miramichi, lies the small community of Tabusintac. Whether you’re looking for sandy beaches, a place to commune with nature or play a round of golf, Tabusintac aims to please.

At MacEachern’s Wharf visitors can enjoy interacting with the local lobster fishermen or go out into the bay for mackerel and cod jigging. Offshore, towards the gulf, a line of beautiful sandy beaches or islands offer a private place to cool off on a hot summer day. Between the beaches and the mainland there is a lagoon and near its middle you find the broad mouth of the Tabusintac River.

Travelling up the river you see the many coves and creeks along its banks. The meandering river is perfect for dipping your boat, canoe or kayak or relaxing while casting a line to catch salmon or trout on one of the cleanest rivers in New Brunswick. Bird watching enthusiasts and hikers alike will enjoy their time exploring the bird sanctuary that encompasses the entire lower stretch of the river.

Visit the Tabusintac Marina and Interpretive Center located in the heart of the village. Learn about the life of the river and the trades centered developed around it. Climb to the top of the replica lighthouse for a beautiful view of the river or enjoy a picnic lunch at the marina.

Saturday mornings become a bit more social as local vendors gather to sell a variety of items at the Country Market in the Tabusintac Community Center. Visitors can enjoy a hearty breakfast before perusing vendors’ booths offering everything from fresh fruit, vegetables and homemade baked goods to handcrafted wood products, jewelry and crafts.
