Augustine Cove - Cape Traverse

The Augustine Cove-Cape Traverse watershed (including Richard Point, Augustine Cove, Prevost Cove, and Cape Traverse River) lies in Prince County. This historical area was settled by the early Acadians. Augustine Cove was named after Major-General Augustin Prevost who, it is thought, visited here around 1760. A winter iceboat service operated from Cape Traverse across the Northumberland Strait to New Brunswick during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
