Come join us on our North shore tour! We begin our tour with a brief tour of historic downtown Charlottetown. We travel to the North Shore through the farming communities and winding roads of rural PEI. Our first stop is in Tracadie Harbor where visit we learn about mussel farming. Next, we head to the national park with the a stop at Dalvey by the Sea, a stately mansion that was built as a summer home in 1895, by Alexander MacDonald from Cincinnati. This is where you get the first glimpse of the virgin sand dunes that are HUGE part of the North Shore. You may be lucky and get to see some of the wildlife native to PEI. Eagles, foxes and our endangered piping plover, to name a few, are everywhere throughout this area.
Cove Head Harbor is next. Fishing is the main industry with a scattering of shops. The light House, located at the entrance to the harbor, is one of Atlantic Canada’s smallest operational light houses, but plays a huge role in keeping the ships and small boats from running aground on the sand dunes.
We head down the road to Brackley Beach where you can take the boardwalk out to one of PEI’s most famous beaches with its white sand and surf to dip your toes in. Our next stop is in North Rustico which is an French-Acadian fishing village. Afterwards, we head to Orby Head where you see the red cliffs that PEI is famous for–What a magnificent sight to see! Next, we head in to Cavendish and do a drive by at the Anne of Green Gables House. We make our way back toward Charlottetown through the rolling hills where we make a brief stop at PEI Preserve Company for some sweet treats that you can pick up.
