Duncan’s Island Tours (Prince Edward Island, Canada)

We had just one day in the Canadian port of Charlottetown, and I didn’t want our memories of Prince Edward Island to be limited to glimpses of the coast through a smeary Holland America tour bus window. On top of that: most folks on our cruise were coming to Prince …
