This guide contains information on paddling Founds River & Granville Creek. Founds River: Founds River extends westward for approximately 1.5 miles. On the northern side, it is dotted with summer cottages; on the southern bank there is predominantly woods. One of the unique aspects of this otherwise rather ordinary stretch of calm river is the abundance of kingfishers. If you steer close to the southern bank, you will notice that the trees branch out over the water. It is from these arching lookout posts that the kingfishers captured my greatest admiration. Never before had I witnessed such energy and velocity as generated by these winged fishermen. When I closed my eyes for a moment during a quiet lull, the silence was always shattered by the staccato, smacking noise of the birds hitting the water, most often victoriously grasping a fish. Granville Creek: From Founds River, enter south into a most quiet and placid channel. This heavily wooded shoreline is home to several eagles that nest high in the tall trees at the water’s edge. The channel opens into a wonderfully quiet bay that extends both east and west. In the cove of Granville Creek, I experienced the very best hospitality that PEI has to offer.
