From the moment I booked our boat trip and talked to Patti-Lynn on the phone, she made us feel welcome and like family. Then we met Mark and Cody at the boat the day of our trip and they welcomed us the same way...like family. We have never had such an excellent experience!! From the wealth of information that they...

Mark was so well prepared and so passionate about his fishing industry which made for a great tour. We all learned so much not only about the fishing industry but also about PEI. The eastern hospitality is so welcoming. Really enjoyed our tour and this is one memory we will never forget. Thank you!

Such a great evening out on the water with Mark and Cody! We learned so much and appreciate their efforts to educate us about conservation, lobster, crabs and anything else we asked about. It's easy to see they are passionate about fishing and life in PEI. The lobster they served us was the best I had on the island (and... More

The excursion was perfect. We did it at night on August 20th with the lobster meal. Everything was great. The captain was entertaining and very instructive. It was definitively a highlight of our trip to PEI.

We had a wonderful day with Mark. He makes you feel comfortable and welcomed right from the start. It was a very informative trip. He is very knowledgable of the lobster industry. Our lobster dinner was great. We highly reconnect this excursion. We can't wait to come back for the tuna fishing. Doris and George De Santis , Stoney Creek... More

Our family (6&9 yr olds) loved this tour. We did the morning voyage and will repeat on our next visit PEI, most likely on a voyage that includes the meal. These guys are honest and really cater to both adults and kids. Arrive about 15 minutes before your sailing time, they may not be in the dock before then, and... More

Great excursion, great hosts, great food. I've become a believer of cold lobster. Mark and Cody were accommodating and amazing. Go for the meal trip, you'll be glad you did.

We really enjoyed learning all about the lobster and crab. Loved talking to the captain and his family, they are extremely nice. We also enjoyed being involved by steering the boat and bringing in a trap. Overall a must while in PEI.

My wife and I had an unbelievably exciting time aboard Mark's boat. We gained a great appreciation for the lobster industry through Mark's entertaining stories and the hands-on experiences of hauling in lobster and crab traps, holding a variety of sea creatures, driving the boat and finally enjoying a delicious lobster dinner, PEI style, at sunset in a beautiful cove...
