The North Shore has a chain of barrier sand dunes stretching across the opening to Malpeque Bay, creating a unique and stunning vista of ocean and dunes. As a backdrop, there are red sandstone cliffs and the pastoral landscape that typify the Island's farming heritage. Malpeque Bay is one of PEI's richest birding areas, including one of the Island's largest cormorant colonies. And of course we'll sample the oysters that have made the bay famous all over the world.

Day One:

You will be picked up from your hotel in Charlottetown at 8:30 am (or you may want to meet us in North Rustico). You will meet and get to know your guides during the short shuttle to the launch site in Malpeque Bay. We'll pack our kayaks together, and you'll receive some instruction on the beach prior to our launch. Once on the water, we'll practice boat handling - it won't take long before you fall into the peaceful rhythm of ocean kayaking. Your guides will prepare a delicious lunch (perhaps smoked salmon with bagels or lobster rolls?) while you relax, dig for clams, beachcomb or take a dip. We'll camp on a beach on Hog Island, arriving in late afternoon, to allow plenty of time for walking, swimming, snorkeling, reading, and stargazing.

Day Two:

As we rise in the warm rays of the morning sun, we'll have coffee and a leisurely breakfast before packing up and continuing in the kayaks. We'll pass Profitt's Pt. and paddle below the tall red cliffs of Cousin's Shore, home of a large cormorant colony. Our campsite for the night, in a cove at the foot of the cliffs, is very secluded, as it is very difficult to reach except by boat. Learn about the natural history of the Island, hear some local stories, or just enjoy the tranquility of this lovely shore.

Day Three:

We'll learn about the "Yankee Gale" today, see the Cape Tryon Light, paddle the shores of Prince Edward Island National Park, and see the tourist haven of Cavendish from a completely different perspective! Depending on the wind and weather, we sometimes finish in Cavendish or opt to paddle back to our headquarters in North Rustico. Regardless of our finish point, you will be met by your shuttle between 2:00 and 4:00 pm. and driven back to Charlottetown.

Notes: This trip is suitable for paddlers with some experience. 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, stay within the shelter of the bays, or paddle down a tidal river. Expect to be in the kayaks about four hours each day, with at least two breaks.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
