Hello Chris!

Thanks for your question.

I would suggest Bonshaw - the river there is absolutely amazing!  Plus, by the bridge, there is an easy way to throw your kayak in the water.

Another spot that I would suggest you check out is around Victoria by the Sea. It is full of spots you can pull over and launch your kayak. Plus, they have some warm water temperatures there too, which is always good.

Just so you know, here's a link to all the wharves on Prince Edward Island.  Hope that helps you too.
