Happy you enjoyed the tour and the island! Come back again soon!
I wish so much she chose something else. The ferry obviously isn't cheap. Between closed trails, beaches, attractions there wasn't much to do. Went to the bird observatory which ended you being private property, albeit in the tourism pamphlet. Huh. Food kinda sucks. Was there...More

Thanks for choosing Pelee Island for your trip! Happy you enjoyed all my suggestions! Hope to see you back on Pelee Island soon!
Bus tour was excellent. David, our guide was very, very knowledgeable about Pelee. We were met at the wharf early. Spent just over two hours travelling around the island. Very informative. We were on Pelee after the season closed so most places were not open...More
The booking process was rather bad. In January we contacted them for a step-on bus tour, which was accepted and we were told that they would contact us two weeks before. BUT NOTHING HAPPENED. So finally I contacted them two days before and was told...More

There are BBQ's at the winery that you can purchase your steaks and burgers and cook yourself. As far as I know, I don't believe there are BbQ's at the Anchor (519)724-2195 but it's best to give them a call and see if they... More
