My wife and I were hesitant about booking this trip because of our mobility restrictions. However, our minds were put at ease after calling to reserve a couple of spots and having all our questions answered. Upon our arrival at the dock, the Captain(Mark), and his brother(Cody) treated us as old friends. The boat was very spacious and even had... More

Mark is an excellent guide providing an education that we didn't really expect. The small size of the group makes the experience even better.

My wife and I had a terrific time aboard the Top Notch. Mark and Cody told us all about lobsters, crabs, and the fishing business and regulations. Then, we got up close and personal with lobsters and crabs after they pulled up some traps. Eventually, we anchored out in Charlottetown Harbour and enjoyed a lobster supper. They walked around to...

We just got back from a road trip to the maritimes. As we were staying in Charlottetown PEI for a couple of days, we booked an afternoon with Top Notch. Mark and Cody were a joy to be out on a fishing boat with. They were engaging and funny. The afternoon went by way too quickly. Lunch was perfect, even... More

We had a blast. Mark and Cody were outstanding hosts. Educational, great food and drinks (we enjoyed the wine and beer offerings), and a beautiful afternoon out on the bay near Charlottetown. It went by so quickly, we didn't want it to end. Definitely for all ages, single adults, families...anyone who enjoys the water and lobsters. A must while visiting... More

My bf and I were very impressed by this tour. We got to learn about fishing for crab and lobster from veteran fishermen (Mark and Cody) who had so much information on the things tourists really want to know! They were also very kind and gracious hosts accommodating to everyone's needs during dinner and served our lobster cold like the... More

My sisters and I traveled to PEI and one of the things we chose to do was Top Notch Charters Lobster Excursion. Captain Mark and brother Cody gave us a hands- educational experience of the lobster industry in Canada. They were very entertaining and knowledgeable. Most of all, the lobster dinner that was served on the tour was "delic". I... More

Mark and Cody are such great hosts. They answered all our questions, took photos of us, were friendly, open and awesome. The tour is fun, there are great views of both the city and rural landscape (red dirt!). We caught lobsters, held them, learned lots about lobsters (male vs. female, life cycles, etc), caught rock crabs, held them, learned lots... More

My husband, son and I went on this excursion, and had a great time. Mark and Cody were very accommodating and friendly, and shared their knowledge and love of Prince Edward Island, the lobster industry, and protecting the environment through sound resource management. We caught lobsters and crabs, and were able to meet a 15 pound lobster. The weather was... More
