Spotlight on Stanley Bridge, PEI
On the picturesque Stanley River at the entrance to New London Bay, the Stanley Bridge Marine Aquarium and Manor of Birds offers a delightful way to spend an afternoon uncovering the fascinating mysteries of the ocean. Stanley Bridge is very close to Bayside RV Campground, a short 15 minute picturesque drive.
The highlight of Stanley Bridge is the aquarium. With live fish aquariums and touch tanks, North America’s largest collection of mounted birds – over 700 specimens – the World of Butterflies display, and a history of Malpeque oysters, the Irish moss and shellfish industries, it’s an educational experience for the whole family.
After touring the aquarium, browse through the unique, on-site gift shop – a shell collector’s dream with shells from around the world. The aquarium is found just off Rte. 6 in Stanley Bridge, 15 minutes from Kensington and 5 minutes from Cavendish.
The other highlight of Stanley Bridge is Carr’s Oyster Bar and Restaurant. Come in, sit down and relax – watch the oyster shucker at work while you enjoy our fresh seafood or other choices. Take in the view of beautiful New London Bay and Stanley Bridge Wharf from the deck – there’s always something going on, whether it’s boats coming and going or people jumping off the bridge.
They feature world famous Malpeque oysters from their own Carr’s Shellfish, clams, mussels, lobster, scallops, fish & chips – they also have a wide selection of choices for those who don’t eat seafood, a full wine and cocktail menu as well as a children’s menu. They have live entertainment several days a week, one of the best restaurents around this area to be sure.
