Paddling Prince Edward Island

Book Description

Prince Edward Island, the smallest of Canada's provinces, is a growing destination for canoeists and recreational and sea kayakers. PEI's bucolic setting, charming towns, varied wildlife, friendly people, and abundant and accessible waters make it a kind of paddler's paradise. This book guides the reader to all of the best paddling waters on PEI, with directions to put-ins, information on typical paddling conditions and hazards, and places and wildlife of special interest. Sidebars and a substantial introduction provide information about traveling to PEI, and highlight the island's history, culture, and natural history. More than a simple paddling guide, Paddling Prince Edward Island is a thorough introduction to this unspoiled vacation destination, as seen from the seat of a canoe or kayak.
