Leaving from Charlottetown you will enjoy the beautiful Canadian Gulf of St. Lawrence as you set sail towards Miramichi in the company of other tall ships.

Ports

Charlottetown is a capital city of a Canadian Prince Edward Island province. Both the waterfront and the Vicotiran-era houses in town provide for great walking tours. Despite its small size, Charlottetown is a lively place, with its Centre of the Arts, St. Dunstan's Basilica and beautiful Victoria Park serving as main attractions. Take a walk through Victoria Row, a cobblestone street with a mix of great cafes, unique little shops and music all around.

Miramichi is a city at the mouth of Miramichi river in a Canadian New Brunswick province. Its unique culture is a blend of Mi'kmaq, Acadian, English, Scottish, and Irish traditions. For a taste of the culture visit New Brunswick Potato World Museum or, if you have more of a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Museum. After you've worked up your appetite sit down in one of many restaurants to enjoy a fresh local salmon.
