Tourism PEI

We are arriving in PEI aboard the Caribbean Princess cruise ship in October. Are there any tour companies giving tours of the lighthouses around the Island?

Good afternoon from Prince Edward Island,

Thank you for your inquiry to Ask an Islander. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Caribbean Princess cruise ship to Charlottetown.

On Prince Edward Island, there are at least three community museum lighthouses that will be open when you arrive on October 4, 2022 and many others provide spectacular views at any time. Here is a list of possible tour companies and guides to contact to request a custom tour during your stay:

In the meantime, you may enjoy reading about the history of PEI lighthouses. On your sail into the Charlottetown Harbour, watch for the Blockhouse Point Lighthouse (pictured below) and the range lights. You may see others as well so I've included a link to the map of lighthouses and range lights of Prince Edward Island for your reference.

Enjoy your time on Prince Edward Island and safe sailing.

Regards,

Verna Lynne
