Our B&B is snuggled in the Bonshaw Hills mere minutes from the bank of the West River which is ideal for an afternoon paddle. If adventure, education, getting close to nature, and unforgettable scenery are in your vacation plans, then you don't want to pass up the opportunity to take a sea or river kayaking tour on Prince Edward Island. Kayaking offers participants a whole new perspective of the Island. Safe and comfortable in the cockpits of one-seater and two-seater kayaks, they are given a unique view of the regal red cliffs, beautiful sand dunes, and pastoral landscapes that can only be found in Canada's smallest province. They also have the opportunity to travel with seals and porpoises, marvel over the spectacle of crystal clear shallows that are alive with activity, witness the grace of bald eagles and osprey, or be deafened by the chatter of a colony of cormorants.
The West River flows southeast into Charlottetown Harbour. The West River bridge was one of the largest landing places for ships in the area until the late 1920's. It is a mere 2 minute walk down the hill. It is an extremely popular fishing spot with islanders and tourists alike. Enjoy a couple of hours of solitude while enjoying one of your favourite pastimes or try it for the first time. Either way we'll be happy to cook your catch for you!
This small river flows south into the Northumberland Strait with marshes on either side making it an ideal location for birding also.
One of the most scenic river systems in the Maritimes, this park offers an area for canoeing and kayaking, fishing, a nature trail, and electrical museum.
Neighbor John makes a big catch!
