WHY PEI?

We have traveled the world before discovering Prince Edward Island!
If a picture is worth a thousand words, see why we fell in love with this uniquely beautiful Island!

Prince Edward Island, the smallest province in Canada, is located in Eastern Canada, tucked into the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence. The Northumberland Strait separates the Island from mainland Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. It has a rich and wonderful history that has molded the culture we share today.

It is a tiny, crescent shaped island, measuring 224 kilometers from tip to tip. It's gently rolling land runs between sea level to it's highest elevation of 450 feet. Summer day time temperatures range from 20 to 32 degrees C. (70 to 90 degrees F) Low humidity and a cool breeze makes perfect shirt sleeve weather. Winter temperatures range from -3 to -11 degrees C. (26 to 11 degrees F) Perfect conditions for a variety of winter sports.

The Provincial Emblems are: Flower - Lady's Slipper, Bird - Blue Jay, Tree - Red Oak.

In 1997, the Confederation Bridge was built to span across the 9 mile strait, replacing the ferry service between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, linking the two provinces to accommodate traffic 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A car ferry service still runs between Caribou, P.E.I. and Pictou, N.S. between the months of May and December.
