Champlain Lookout

Letters from geographer and cartographer Samuel de Champlain’s 1st voyage to North America indicate he sailed up the Bay of Fundy and past Quaco Head in 1604, naming it the ‘Cardinal’s Hat’ because of its resemblance to the head attire of a cardinal. Although the Bay of Fundy had been explored by others, Champlain was the first to place this bay on a map.
