Morning Cruise

For those who like early morning air, scenic views & local flavours.

May 1st to Oct 31st

Overview

Be an "eco-tourist" and embark on a 1.5-hour afternoon cruise of the Charlottetown Harbour. Our 34 passenger solar-electric vessel is complete with booth seating, WiFi, a licensed bar and lavatory. Originally a "Vaporetto" from the famous 1967 Montreal Expo, this 55 yr old Canadian Heritage Vessel underwent an 8 yr rebuild & retrofit to become North America's largest solar tour boat!

 

  • Cruise around the Charlottetown Harbour with stunning views of the Charlottetown waterfront, Victoria Park, the West River, Fort Amherst, and more

  • Admire the green spaces, red soil, and rolling hills that make up PEI's south shore

  • Play trivia, watch a time-lapse video of the boat being constructed, see the batteries under the glass floor, get your photo taken steering North America's LARGEST solar-powered vessel

  • Live model lobster trap demonstration & go-pro lobster trap video

  • Learn about the history of solar boat, the Montreal Expo, the birthplace of Confederation, the Expulsion of the Acadians, the waterfront areas and aquatic life from your expert guide.

Departure times for the afternoon cruises are 12:00 pm and 2:30 pm. Check your confirmation email to ensure the correct departure time. Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the departure time to ensure sufficient time for boarding.
