St. Croix River
La Rivière Sainte-Croix
From the Chiputneticook Lakes, the waters of the St. Croix River tumble through rolling Appalachian scenery to one of the most historic estuaries in Canada, at Passamaquoddy Bay. Here, French colonization in North America began in 1604 on St. Croix Island. The river was travelled for millennia by native fishermen and traders and as an international border, British Loyalist and others later crossed these waters to contribute to the founding of Canada. Today, the St. Croix’s scenery, historic communities and traditional recreational fishing and canoeing continue to attract many to the region. For these unique features the New Brunswick side of the St. Croix River has been proclaimed a Canadian Heritage River.
