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

We decided to take our family of 6 (mom mom and pop pop, a 8 year old girl, a twelve year old boy and my husband and I) on a Lobster Excursion during our vacation to PEI. Within the first 30 minutes on the boat my son said that this was his favorite thing we had done all week (and... More

We were excited to go out and learn about lobster fishing and have a lobster dinner. We were not disappointed! Captain Mark and his brother Cody were great hosts. The tour was a... More

A great and very informative lobster tour capped off with an even better lobster dinner out on the water. Well worth the money!

If you are visiting PEI in the summer, DO NOT MISS this tour! Mark and his brother Cody are genuine lobstermen and the tour in on a working lobster boat. You will learn everything about lobster fishing and the meal is great. What better setting for a lobster dinner than on a lobster boat out on the water! Better than... More

Booked this tour 2 month before visiting Charlottetown. As PEI and city itself this tour was one of the mots brilliant touches of your trip in the Maritimes. Captain Mark and his brother Cody are very friendly team. They give you a full immersion in the fishermen's life learning you about their work, their habits. So, Don't count your money,... More

We went on the 90 minute lobster tour this morning. It was the highlight of our trip! Captain Mark and Captain Cody surely must be the kindest, most professional, and knowledgable lobster fishermen in PEI. This was exceptionally enjoyable, fun, and educational! We learned so much about the lobster fishermen/industry, crab, and tuna fishing! We enjoyed the ride (in very... More

I saw the brochure for Top Notch at the B&B we were staying at. The Innkeeper had nothing but wonderful things to say so we booked it right away. We went for the lobster dinner tour. Not only did we get a great lobster dinner - Captain Mark and his Mate Cody were honest, genuine and personable hosts. We hauled... More
