Day One:

You will be picked up from your hotel in Charlottetown at 8:30 am. You will meet and get to know your guides during a short shuttle to the launch site on Boughton Bay. There, we’ll pack the kayaks and the guides will get you started with some basic paddling instruction onshore. Once on the water, we’ll take some time to offer paddling techniques that will help you become more comfortable in your boat. A couple of hours’ paddling brings us to our lunch spot, where you can expect a delicious picnic lunch on the beach. Another couple of hours’ paddling brings us to the Inn at Spry Point, originally built by the New Alchemists as an experimental microcosm of self-sufficiency. You’ll dine under a canopy of grapevines in the unique dining room. The Inn offers beautiful vistas, handsome rooms, and woodland trails.

Day Two:

After a country breakfast, it’s back in the kayaks as we paddle past sandy white beaches interrupted by breathtaking red sandstone cliffs. There are plenty of bird watching opportunities along this stretch of shore as we will paddle past cormorant colonies and possibly see bald eagles. A picnic lunch and some time on the beach will replenish our energy before we paddle on to the spectacular Inn at Bay Fortune, the former home of Broadway playwright Elmer Harris and other actors and authors. It is described by Where to Eat in Canada as“...overlooking the sea, a snug sitting room with an open fire and a dining room that...is without question the best on the Island”.

Day Three:

After an elegant breakfast at the Inn, we set out this morning for the town of Souris. There are some nice areas for snorkeling along this part of the coast - try to spot some lobster and crabs. The shallow waters even allow you to glimpse such marine creatures from your kayak. The many inlets and coves on this section of coast allow a view of the Island’s patchwork green pastures, red fields, and bright wildflowers that border on the ocean. You’ll be received at the port of Souris at either the 4-star comforts of the McLean House Inn or at the Matthew House Inn, both gorgeous B&Bs renowned for their hospitality. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to dine in Souris or we’ll drive for dinner in Montague or St. Peter’s.

Day Four:

Our last day will be spent on a morning paddle. We will make for beautiful Singing Sands Beach, so named for the musical sounds the unique sand makes under your feet. Nearby is Basin Head Fisheries Museum, where excellent exhibits offer a glimpse into the industry that shaped much of the Island’s culture. We will then be met by our shuttle and return to Charlottetown. Arrival is mid-afternoon.

Notes: Although this trip is suitable for novice paddlers, bear in mind that we are paddling on the ocean and wind and weather will be a factor. Poor weather may force us to change our paddling plans – for example, we sometimes run the trip in the opposite direction, opt to paddle the river mouths, or hug the shoreline. Expect to be in the kayaks about four hours each day, with at least two breaks.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
