Lighthouses and Points East Tour - 5 hrs.

Leaving Charlottetown we'll travel the Trans-Canada Highway East to Point Prim which features the oldest Lighthouse on the Island. This round brick structure is one of the few Lighthouses of its kind in Canada. This 60 foot- tall ( 18.2 meter ) tower marks the entrance to Hillsborough Bay. We will continue on to Wood Island's Lighthouse built in 1876, a fifty-four foot square tower attached to a six-bedroom house. It features one of the only keeper's quarters still intact. With eleven rooms to tour, you can enjoy historical tales of the Island’s rum-running days, stories of the burning/phantom ship, as well as a large sea glass display. Then we'll head for the Rossignol Estates Winery, located on the shore road in Little Sands PEI. This award winning winery overlooks The Strait and red sand cliffs. While welcoming offshore breezes grace the surrounding area, you may tour the estate and sample their award winning wines. The next stop is Panmure Island where you will find the Island's first wooden Lighthouse built in 1853. It is the only Lighthouse used to guide crafts into three rivers. In 1937 the Hindenburg crossed its path on its way to New Jersey from Germany. Panmure Head Lighthouse offers some of the most picturesque views and scenery the Island has to offer. Rolling hills, bays, inlets and quaint Island villages will be highlighted on our return trip to Charlottetown.
