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.

Carleton-sur-Mer is located in southeastern Quebec and is the fifth largest town of the Gaspésie’s south shore. Every year in Carleton-sur-Mer there is an International ”Maximum Blues” Festival that attracts over 20 000 spectators. Go and visit the beautiful catholic pilgrimage on Mount Saint-Joseph or the Phare de Carleton, a lighthouse with a special architecture.
