We Will be taking a cruise in 21 days, and this is one of our reports we will be stopping at. The excursions for tours through the cruise line are so darn expensive that I was hoping I could get some advice from the locals.
Primarily, for two seniors who cannot do a whole lot of walking what are the best things to see on this island? I am very partial to light houses, but I don't want to rent a car or anything.
Can anyone give some advice?
Take a tour. Don't drive. You'll waste your time driving. It's about 2 hours drive from West Point Lighthouse to Charlottetown, one way. If you take a tour, they will show you popular highlights plus you won't have to drive.
Hi, I am afraid that I will have to agree with Jonathan. PEI is bigger than you think, and you will need to rent a car to get most places. Charlotte town is great to explore, with lots to see and do. You can check local tour companies to try and find a cheeper way to do different trips. All the best.
I assume your cruise ship is sailing into Charlottetown? If so you are at least 45 minutes drive from destinations like PEI national park, 1.5 hours drive from West Point lighthouse, and 1-1.5 hours drive from east point lighthouse. If you can get to these destinations there is much to see and do that is easy to see and do for those that are limited, but you will almost certainly need a rental car to get to these places on your own. Hope this helps, feel free to message more questions if need.
