We had the most wonderful experience with Mark and Cody. They were incredibly knowledgable and blew us away with how they kept the childrens attention. The kids still talk about this being one of the best PEI adventures we shared this summer. You will not be disappointed with this crews professionalism and kindness.

Mark and Cody were very professional and friendly. They were very timely in booking as well as accommodating additional people. We also liked the learning about their family history which made the excursion more personable. I also enjoyed driving the boat! If we had more time on the island we would have booked their charter tuna excursion. Thanks Mark and... More

This was so much fun! Mark and Cody were very interactive with us. My partner was able to pull the trap out of the water and I held every thing they pulled out. It was so much fun and that was the main part of our conversation when people asked about our trip. I would go again and recommend this... More

As you can surmise from the other reviews here, this is hands down a knock out tour. We went on the morning tour (since I'm the only one in a family of four that will eat a lobster!). We had a great day for the trip. There are three stops we made - to haul up a crab pot, a... More

My family went on the Top Notch lobster tour with Mark and Cody and it was definitely a highlight of our trip to P.E.I. I am ten and my sister and I thought it was super fun to go on this tour because we got to: drive the boat, pull up the buoys and traps and hold the lobsters and... More

We had a fantastic time on this trip, Cody & Mark were amazing hosts and we learned a lot about the fishing business in PEI. They were great with our youngest daughter allowing her to pull up a trap and drive the boat. We all got to hold crabs, lobsters, star fish... The meal on board was delicious. A must... More
