“Glorious day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had a glorious day on Captain Mark's boat. The weather was perfect and we learned so much about lobsters and lobster fishermen, as Mark is a 4th generation fisherman himself. It was great fun and a definite highlight during our visit to Prince Edward Island.

“A win-win for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Neat idea of Capt. Mark to use his off time from hunting lobster to taking folks out, sharing the story of his profession and the ecological complexities it keeping it viable, then providing a great lobster feed for his guests. Everyone Wins !
You learn of the trials and tribulations of the professional lobster person, not from The Discovery Channel, but from someone who is doing it for a living and takes great pride in what they do.
When you leave Charlottetown, you will remember Mark and the "Top Notch" as one of your highlights..
Oh, I forgot................the lobster was really good!

“A fantastic lobster tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

A very informative and tasty tour! Our tour included the lobster dinner, very delicious. No better way to enjoy a lobster dinner than on a lobster fishing boat! Mark and Cody were great! The weather was fantastic and the water was beautiful.
