Just did the East Coast, if you are going from Charlottetown (even if not), take Hwy 4. You will not be dissappointed! Nice twisty secondary with little traffic. Do it, you will thank me.

One thing I enjoyed was a short fishing trip on the north shore of PEI. It was a 3 hour trip, jigging for cod and mackerel. Nothing huge but I think it was $35 and it was a great chance to go for a boat ride.

I hope you realize that the Cabot Trail is on Cape Breton Island and not Prince Edward Island.

Now don't go getting all technical on us. If he takes the 7am Cabot Trail train to Inverness, he'll have plenty of time to walk up to North Mountain and back to catch the overnight submarine ride out to Cavendish Beach for the Anne of Green Gables look-a-like festival.

Personally, I always preferred the zeplin ride to Cavendish. Oh the humanity!

Big area with minimal transportation infrastructure. Yes you can bus from Halifax to PEI, could rent a car as well but if you are renting then you will also pay to leave the province of PEI either via the fixed link (very long and cool bridge) or by ferry - be aware that the bridge and ferry don't go to the same places. If you are planning on going from PEI to Cape Breton to visit the Cabot Trail then you'll want to take the ferry to Pictou and travel from them. In this case you'll probably need to have your own transportation and not rely on a bus. You might be able to fly into Sydney, Nova Scotia (on the isle of Cape Breton - island but connected with by the Canso causeway) from Charlottetown, PEI but I doubt it, likely you would have to return to Halifax and fly from there. It would be expensive. Halifax to Sydney is about 6hrs by car on the hwy. Don't think 8 lanes slab, think divided 4 lane with sections of two lane. There are options to take secondary routes if you have time.

Halifax to Charlottetown is about 1h 45 by car if you drive quick and take the hwy from Nova Scotia to New Brunswick then cross the fixed link to PEI.

Make sure you have your passport to get into and out of Cape Breton
A local joke as Cape Breton, though part of Nova Scotia, has at times jokingly asserted its independance.
