We had such an enjoyable tour. Mike our guide was very fun and entertaining. He gave us lots of history about the city and the island itself. Added his own personal touch to the tour. Tom was our caption and did a awesome job both on land and sea. We learned about many different places which help us to plan... More

One of the highlights of our trip. We went with our daughter and son-in-law and had a blast. Our tour guide Mike and captain Tom are awesome

We had a great experience of the Charlottetown Harbor Hippo! Mike was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable, hilarious, personable and kept it fun and enlightening.

We took the Harbour Hippo land and sea tour. It is a great way to see the highlights of Charlottetown and the view of the harbour from the water. This helped us decide which areas we wanted to then explore in more detail later. The morning we took the tour was cloudy, windy with rain a threat at any moment,... More

The Charlottetown, PEI Harbour Hippo water bus is just about the most fun you can have in the water and not get wet; the niftiest views of the highlights of the downtown old city so you can plan your leisurely city walk about. I've ridden the Harbour Hippo and the Hippopotabuso and both are excellent entertainment and great fun..pick one... More

We have been on the Harbour Hippo in Charlottetown and Harbour Hopper in Halifax and neither disappoint. The kids especially love it. The seats are not the most comfortable and the price is a bit high, but it is such a unique experience that it outweighs the cost. Guides are interactive and entertaining. Be sure to buy your tickets early... More

We did this in July 2013 and came again in August 2014, both kids were begging for it... It is quite nice to visit the city without having to drive (or walk for hours), gives you an idea where you can go later and explore some more what you liked best during the tour. For kids it was just pure... More

This is a enjoyable attraction for young and old. I would tell anyone who has not tried this to do so. It is also fun for the Kinder Garden field trips I am told.

My 8 y/o enjoyed this trip. Was great for him to see some of the historical sites that we normally wouldn't have. Our guide was great and knowledgeable!
