This 4-hour bus tour of the Prince Edward Island coast starts at the Charlottetown Visitor Information Centre in downtown Charlottetown at 12:30pm. After meeting the guide and finding a seat on board the bus, head out of town towards the beautiful, scenic coast surrounding the island. The guide will talk about the unique history of the island and the people who live there while driving by coastal cliffs and beaches, forests, rolling farmland, pastoral rivers, and the ever-present sea.
The first stop is Point Prim Lighthouse, built in 1845. As the first and oldest lighthouse on the island, Point Prim was of special significance to the first settlers and traders on Prince Edward Island. It is also one of the only round-brick lighthouses in Canada, making it a testament to an earlier time. After Point Prim, visit the Wood Island Lighthouse, built in 1876 to aid marine traffic in the Northumberland Strait. After stopping for photos and a moment to appreciate the rolling landscape, head back to the bus and continue towards the Rossignol Estates Winery to try a variety of wines, including their famous, double-gold-winning blueberry wine.
Your tour ends with drop-off back at the departure point in the afternoon.
