This was one of the highlights of our vacation. We purchased a bag of sediment and then panned it for its contents. It was so much fun. The children still have their treasures that they found in their pans. And they keep asking when we are going back so they can do it again. So much fun! A sure bet to visit again on our next trip to the island.

We visited Cracker Creek Mining Company in Cavendish PEI on our recent visit from Australia. My 8 year old son is obsessed with gems and crystals and rocks so this was perfect for him. He got to choose his own bag of rocks that he would 'mine' with. There are different bags to choose from, some have fossils, crystals, gems etc. You pour the bag into the mining box and then you move it back and forth in the water to reveal your gems etc which you get to take home and keep. The attendant working there was very helpful and knowledgeable. The set up was fantastic and looked really good. There was also lots of rocks and crystals and jewellery to buy at very reasonable prices. It's a lot of fun for the kids and a good way for them to spend half an hour at. It's all in the same place as Ripley's Believe It or Not and Wax World and Mariners Mini Golf so you can make a day of it and work your way along to each attraction. There's also a Tim Horton's Coffee shop too where you can relax as well. A great day out.
