Experience what life was like when the original settlers lived amongst the coves of that Bay of Islands in Brakes Cove. No internet, no cell phone, no traffic.... just get away. Imagine going to bed with the ocean at your door and waking up to the sounds of the sea. In season an optional guided cod fishing and Bald Eagle viewing tour gives you a chance to test your skills at catching your own supper. Your return to a seafood feast, then you settle back for a fire on the beach.....
To get to the back in time getaway the trip can vary based on the weather. If the seas and our boat and guide is not on the ocean with a tour we will carry you over by boat. If the seas are rough and the tide is low then you can take a 15 minutes stroll along the coastal trail. If there is high tide and seas there is a trail over the hill to arrive at brakes cove. Either way, pack to be mobile. Backpacks are great. Trust us, it is worth the walk. Before you leave cox's cove note that there is a fish plant where you can buy fresh lobster to bring with you for dinner!
Optional cod fishing and bald eagle viewing tours are available for an additional fee. In season you can have the cod cleaned and you can catch your own supper! 2 hour tours $250, 3 hour tours $350, 4 hour tours $450 for up to 4 people
Please note that the Back in time getaway is HST registered and requires HST in addition to your nightly fee. This HST will be collected upon booking in a separate request through AirBNB
