When researching our trip to the Maritimes, I saw this come up as the best excursion to go on in PEI. And boy was it ever! This was the biggest highlight (from a long list of many) on our Atlantic Canada trip. We booked an evening cruise online and lucked out by getting a nice sunny day. Mark and Cody... More

The highlight of our trip to PEI was the evening cruise on the TOP NOTCH. Mark & Cody provided a wonderful entertaining and informative cruise. We not only enjoyed the scenic boat cruise but thoroughly enjoyed learning about the lobster/crab industry on the island. Very informative to see how these fisherman love their jobs and care about their industry and... More

The lobster boat experience was one of the highlights of our trip. Mark and Cody were very friendly and shared a lot of interesting facts about lobsters and fishing in PEI. They come from a long line of fishermen and they clearly love what they do. We enjoyed a relaxing boat cruise and hearing all about lobsters. The dinner was... More

Our morning excursion was terrific! Mark and Cody were friendly, personable hosts who gave us lots of interesting information on the lobster industry, crabs and lobsters themselves, yet kept even the youngsters in our group interested and entertained! It was a fantastic experience well worth the price!

Can't miss excursion. If you're visiting PEI this has to be on your must do list. Mark and Cody did an amazing job of educating you on the industry while making it a fun not to mention tasty experience. I always appreciate people that excel at what they do and these fellows get an A+++ from me. Trevor Young

We did the morning trip with no lobster supper since we intended to do our own lobster dinner that evening. Mark and Cody were great hosts informative and fun. We learned a lot about PEI lobster fishing and lobsters in general! Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a few hours on the water.

What an incredible evening. We travelled all through the maritimes and finished our trip with the sunset lobster dinner. What a night with Mark and Cody....they treated us like family, taught us so much, let us experience the treasures of the water, gave us a few unexpected surprises that showed they go above and beyond...then finished the night off with...

We had a wonderful time with Mark and Cody! They do an excellent job educating everyone on the lobster business and the conservation! Plus they are very fun and entertaining! We were just a couple of Texas girls looking for a fun activity and this was totally worth it!
