    • Inside Day cruises BC Ferries

      Canada Dec 16, 2014 at 2:28 AM

      I note from BC ferries web page that they operate an Inside Day Cruise during summer months - however, they seem to have wiped the details from their website for this year and have not put up the schedule/fares for 2015. We hope to visit June/July 2015 - so if anyone has any details of this year's schedule etc that we could use as a baseline it would be much appreciated

      Many thanx

    • Winter Carnival

      Quebec 18 hours ago

      I understand the Winter carnival is from Jan 30-Feb 15. We are thinking of coming Feb 7th weekend (my husband and I). Don't know Quebec, suggestions on hotels to stay? Would like to be able to walk to events. Was on the Carnival website, there is a night parade on the 7th and a canoe race on the 8th. Is it worth it to get the VIP tickets ($42.50 pp for parade, $52.50 pp for canoe ride). Lastly, I heard about the ice hotel. Is there a shuttle we could take to get there? Any other comments or suggestions greatly appreciated!!

    • Ferry/Bridge

      Prince Edward Island Jul 30, 2013 at 6:14 PM

      Planning on driving through New Brunswick across the Confederation Bridge to PEI and then taking the ferry from Wood Island to Caribou Nova Scotia. A little confused on the charges, as the bridge info says they charge when you leave PEI (which I wouldn't be) and the ferry info says they charge a round trip fare (regardless of whether or not you go both ways by ferry?)

      Bike Touring on PEI Mid June 2013

      Prince Edward Island Feb 11, 2013 at 6:59 PM

      I am planning on cycle touring trip (mix of camping and hotels) for mid June. I have been hearing not all attractions/restaurants/etc are open then. Is that correct ? Also, any suggestions whether we head to West side or east? I know we can't do all. We plan on riding 5 or 6 days, 40-50 miles/day (to allow sightseeing). I have info on the Confederation Trail and we might use that for some riding but like the coastal areas.

      We could go later in summer, my reasoning for June was to avoid some of the crowds and issues with trying to find accommodations.

      We would be arriving via car and leaving car near Gateway village.
      Any challenges with wind ? or possibly best bet for riding?

      any feedback/suggestions would be appreciated! thanks

      Just got back from a New England/Canada cruise and while touring the countryside I noticed that a few homes had a 5 point star on the front of their house. Maybe 10% of the homes had this star, so it might just be a decoration, or it might have some meaning....does anybody know for sure?

      Prince Edward Island Aug 28, 2010 at 5:42 PM

      I hear that Woodleigh Park has gone into bankruptcy, is this true? What is going to happen with it? I think that this park is well worth saving. It needs to be re-furbished qand advertised more. After I saw it about 15 yrs. ago, I told everyone who was heading to Prince Edward Island it was a MUST see...and manyI know travelled there just to see that. You have a gem there that no other place in Canada has! I cannot see why you do not pounce on it...tourists love it and more would if they knew about it. I went through all of the PEI brochures at two different years, and never did I see it mentioned ONCE! You have more treasures than Anne of Green Gables...and that wears thin after awhile.

      I plan to come to PEI in the last week of april.
      I am a student, and would be interested in student deals at hotels or around the area, if there are any.
      i will be coming over by ferry from halifax.
      what is the name of the ferry, what is the price, and where in PEI will it let me off?? I want to arrange a hotel but it's hard because I don't want to make it too far away from the ferry drop off. also I am travling alone so I need a safe place to stay. I was looking at a hostel, Hi Charlottetown, but I'm not sure if it is close to the ferry. also it seems to be the only hostel on the island.

      help, please!
