Water-ings
No matter where you find yourself in the city, you’re never far from water. Without fail, you’ll find yourself drawn to the historic waterfront, where there’s always plenty to see and do, yet no one ever seems to be in a hurry. Perhaps it’s the lulling qualities of the ocean or the gentle reminder from a sea breeze—whatever it is, the luxury of time is an Island quality to be cherished. There are many ways to embrace these coastal vibes, choose the ones that suit your style

Get Your Thrill On
Those with a seafaring thrillseekers can get up close and personal with the Charlottetown water, thanks to Flyboard PEI, which offers flyboarding and hoverboarding experiences that will get you airborne over the Charlottetown harbour.

Rock the Boat
If cruising the Charlottetown harbour by boat sounds like bliss you’re in luck, because there are plenty of tours departing from Peake’s Wharf and the Charlottetown Marina. Choose from several options including: a solar eco-tour with Ride Solar, a lobster fishing excursion with Top Notch Tours, a land-and-sea tour of the city aboard the amphibious Harbour Hippo, seal watching with Adventure Tours, or an immersive experience aboard an authentic Chinese Junk Boat. Whatever floats your boat!

Walk the Walk
Prefer to stay on solid ground? Much of the city’s historic waterfront is now linked by a series of boardwalks that provide the best vistas of the harbour and stunning cityscapes as well. You’ll find that each season has something special to showcase on the harbourfront. Sunset strolls are, of course, highly recommended, along with a stop at the big red 2019 numbers you’ll encounter as you take the boardwalk around the Delta Prince Edward hotel.

Beach It Up!
You’re never more than twenty minutes from a beach on PEI, and there are several within an easy drive from Charlottetown. From national and provincial park beaches with amenities to public beaches with barely any road signs directing you to their location, your perfect beach day is mere minutes away.

A warm sea breeze is the perfect accompaniment to a feast of fresh seafood and other culinary delights from the land and waters of PEI. There are plenty of dining options along the Charlottetown waterfront or you can always pack a picnic and make your way to a favourite waterside vista.
