PEAKES WHARF BOAT CRUISES

“We saw so many seals and got to hold a lobster. The Captain and his sister shared lots of info. He entertained us with music and songs. The kids got to drive the boat and wear a captain’s hat. Light refreshments can be bought. I highly recommend this boat tour.”   Shanette

“Just a fabulous enjoyable boat tour with a wonderful captain and things to see. Maybe he’s not the finest singer in the world, but who cares!” Caribonmymind

So Set sail with Charlottetown’s award winning boat tour! Depart from Peake’s Quay, walking distance from major hotels and sail out Charlottetown’s historic harbour. While on route to Governors Island sit back and take in the breath taking views via the water. I have spent my whole life on the water and am amazed each and every time I set sail. You’ll see and learn about navigating on the water, range lights, light houses, seals, birds, fish, porpoise “whales” and listen to original down home PEI music onboard the fully licensed Fairview.. “CHANCES ARE THE CAPTAIN MAY EVEN BREAK OUT HIS GUITAR AND SING SOME SEA SONGS”

We will be hauling real lobster traps, measuring and banding lobsters. You can hold one and learn all about how to become a fisherman or fisherwoman on PEI. “May even hear some fishing jokes. This tour is never dull. Kids can color and will be picked for a prize. Very Family Friendly.

Truly a tour of a lifetime to add the starting or finishing touches on you PEI vacation.
