Island North Shore Tour - 5 hrs.

I have designed this tour to highlight the history and scenic

beauty of the Islands North Shore.

  - Harry Moreland

A short drive north from Charlottetown takes us to the Island's North Shore, passing bays and inlets where Island Mussel farmers harvest Blue Mussels, and then it’s on to the Prince Edward Island National Park, home of Dalvay by the Sea, a National Historic Site built in 1895. Fans of the Television series Road to Avonlea will recognize this site as the White Sands Hotel. Continuing along this coastal drive, peaceful sandy beaches stretch along the Gulf of St. Lawrence side while salt water marshes line the left. A photo stop at the Covehead Lighthouse and the fishing village of Covehead Bay is always sure to please.   Next we visit the Dunes Studio Gallery, a treasure trove of Island Artisans and floral gardens. We’ll travel through Anglo Rustico, home of the Island's oldest house, Roman Catholic Church and the Farmers Bank of Rustico, Canada’s first financial institution. Then with great pleasure I’ll introduce you to my home, the fishing Village of North Rustico where we fish Atlantic Large Claw Lobster. Meet the locals, hear their stories, and then I'll demonstrate the inner workings of a lobster trap. Leaving North Rustico we’ll visit the scenic red sand cliffs overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Our next stop will be the Cavendish home of Lucy Maude Montgomery’s endearing character Anne of Green Gables. We’ll then head back to the Island’s capital by way of the rolling hills of New Glasgow. Arriving in Charlottetown we’ll wrap up our tour driving by Victorian mansions and Province House where the founding fathers forged our nation.  You will discover why Charlottetown is not only a vibrant urban center but also a historic gem.
Safe and comfortable tours of our beautiful Island
