Richibucto Marina 2Located about half way between Shediac and the Miramichi on New Brunswick’s Acadian Coast, the town of Richibucto offers a safe and picturesque harbour for yachts cruising the area. The town is reached through an opening in the barrier islands and along a winding, but well marked, 6.5-mile-long channel. Vessels are reported to be able to carry 6-foot draft as far as the town docks.

The Richibucto Marina is in the protected artificial harbour which also accommodates the area’s considerable fishing fleet. During lobster season this is a busy and interesting place to visit, with about 100 boats and 300 fishermen. This is also the location for most of the Scallop Festival activities which take place July 18 to 23.

Richibucto MarinaThe Richibucto River is navigable for 18 miles past the town as far as Brown’s Landing, however thanks to the presence of several low bridges only small powerboats can make the trip. From the marina you have access to the beautiful barrier islands along the Northumberland Strait, with their beaches that stretch for miles. Just to the north is Kouchibouguac National Park with 92 square miles of forest, marshes, lagoons and islands.
