Kalos Golf, a cruise line specializing in golf tours, will make its first stop on P.E.I. in September.

The company was first attracted to the region by the newly-opened Cabot Cliffs course in Cape Breton, and took the opportunity of that announcement to plan a tour of the whole of Atlantic Canada.

The P.E.I. stop will feature the Links at Crowbush Cove.

"Our folks are passionate golfers," said Kalos Golf VP Casey Oliver.

"People will come home and they'll talk about the great experience they had."

The tour is on a relatively small ship. The Silver Explorer has space for 120 guests, and both the trip this September and a return trip scheduled for 2017 are sold out.

The 12-day tour will include stops in Inverness, St. John's, and Halifax.
