On the Water

It's no secret that Prince Edward Island has sandy beaches and the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. With 1,100 km of coastline the opportunities to take advantage of are many.


Fishing Charters

May we suggest, for the whole family, a deep-sea fishing tour – an uncomplicated three hours in a traditional Cape Islander fishing for mackerel, cod or herring. Several charters also offer tuna fishing expeditions - check one out today! Or for something a little different, take a tour on a lobster boat and become a lobster fisherman for a day!

Kayak and Canoe Tours

For those who prefer to paddle their own boat, there are several outfitters offering sea and river tours. This is an activity that can meet the needs of the most adventurous or those who just want to try paddling for the first time.


One of the fastest growing water sport in the world, the Island’s shallow bays and consistent winds provide an excellent setting for kiteboarding adventures. The sensation of skimming across the surface of our salty seas will thrill even the most jaded.


What better way to see Prince Edward Island than with a birds-eye view while parasailing? Choose from three different rope lengths and don’t forget your camera!


Whether you bring your own boat, join a charter, or want to brush up your skills at a sailing school, Prince Edward Island offers stunning harbours and breathtaking coastlines which will take your breath away.
