About Us

Sail the richly historic Three Rivers aboard the Skylark VIII. The beautiful vessel provides seating for 36 people, with each table providing a great view of the scenery. The fully enclosed dining area allows the boat to sail, rain or shine!

The boat is inspected annually by Transport Canada and is fully equipped with life saving equipment, life jackets, fire fighting equipment, and radio communications. Crew members are trained in emergency procedures and CPR. The safety of our passengers is our top priority.

The boat is also licensed to serve wine, beer, and mixed drinks.

About the Area

River Run Dining Cruises is based in Montague, Prince Edward Island. Montague is a quaint town on Eastern PEI which boasts numerous restaurants, artisan shops, farmers markets, and a museum. Montague also has two large grocery stores, chain restaurants, pharmacies, and a hospital.

Our vessel cruises the historic Three Rivers, which were included on the list of outstanding Canadian Heritage Rivers in 2004, and named a National Historic Site in 1933. Three Rivers was settled in 1732 by a group of French settlers and fishermen, led by a man named Jean-Pierre Roma. Roma settled first at Brudenell Point, and the French colony survived for 13 years as the first commercial venture on PEI. The area was perfect for fishing, but also an ideal location for trade. Roma believed in keeping his labourers happy, so he was known to hold feasts with dancing and singing for a break from the labourious tasks. A beautiful complex now sits at the end of the Brudenell Point Road, where visitors can learn about life as an early settler, eat a lunch that Roma himself would have eaten, and hike endless trails along the coast.

Our tour leaves from the Montague Marina, where working fishing vessels and pleasure boats alike make up the bustling harbour. If you’re early to the boat, take a walk along the waterfront trail and check out the impressive sculptures of cormorants and tuna, browse the gift shop for beautiful keepsakes, or sit and sip on a cold beverage at the Station Café. If you’re lucky, there may be live entertainment on the stage in the gardens!

The Confederation Trail Head begins at the edge of the parking lot on the water front, and Shorty’s Ice Cream serves up hefty portions of delicious ADL ice cream. If you’re looking for a place to rest your head, the beautiful Lane’s Riverhouse Inn sits atop the Confederation Trail. Inquire about movie night, as the Riverhouse Inn has an impressive theatre where you can settle in with a bag of popcorn and enjoy the show.
