The PEI Boating Festival is a celebration of our love of boating, our passion for good food and our reputation for throwing a good party!  

Events include a day cruise for powerboaters and sailboats in the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait, a sailboat race from Summerside to Charlottetown and an Around the Island Sailboat race and cruise.


Spirit of Bermuda

The Boating Festival is in its inaugural year with a Tall Ship (Spirit of Bermuda) coming to port in both Charlottetown and Summerside (take a tour or sign up for a sail). Spirit of Bermuda will be arriving in Charlottetown flying full colours July 27th and staying at CYC where you can take a tour. She will lead the flotilla to Summerside and be open for tours at The SilverFox Yacht club July 28th.


Prince Edward Island is one of the best kept boating destination secrets in North America -with protected harbours and the warmest water north of the Carolinas! We are famous for our beaches, golf courses and seafood. With all this good stuff it should come as no surprise we are also told we are some of the friendliest people anywhere!
