Cruise aboard the Isola Solaretto - North America's LARGEST solar boat & the world's FIRST solar-powered dinner cruise and tour boat. Originally a "vaporetto" during the 1967 Montreal Expo (World's Fair), this 52 year old Canadian Heritage vessel has been completely retrofitted & repowered for solar powered cruises. Operating out of the Charlottetown Marina from May - Oct every year..
Come aboard our comfortable "dining room on the water" for 90 min daytime eco-harbour tours, all-inclusive 5 course surf & turf evening dinner cruises, and 2 hr midnight champagne & oyster cruises with live entertainment! With free WiFi, full kitchen, licensed bar & bathroom, this Ride Solar dinner cruise & tour boat is perfect for a private getaway or to host your next work, family, or group function/party.
"Expo Service No 5" as it was known at the Montreal Expo was decommissioned along with all the other Vaporettos and actually found its way to the Charlottetown Harbour in 1970 for 2 years doing harbour cruises. Kept in its original form, tours aboard the M/V Vaporetto Queen, as she was then known as, were just $2/adult and $1/child.
Nearly 50 years later, the same boat (completely refitted & repowered) is now back in the Charlottetown Harbour better than ever to give you a tour experience on the water that cannot be had anywhere else in the world!
