A great way to spend an afternoon. Mark involved everyone from young to old, from driving the boat to pulling in the buoys. Mark's passion for fishing and p.e.i. comes through and he has some great stories to tell and lots of information to share. The local beer onboard is a great touch. Would definitely go on this tour again!!

Captain Mark and his brother Cody were wonderful hosts and delivered a first rate experience - safe, fun, educational, tasty and memorable! We now really appreciate the lobster fisherman's profession and the great care they take at making this a sustainable industry. We enjoyed a wonderful lobster dinner while anchored in a beautiful bay (with a great wine pairing from a local PEI winery - Newman Winery). A perfect afternoon which exceeded all our expectations.

Sensational, that's all there is to it. Mark is articulate, very knowledgeable, and obviously a pro lobsterman! Don't miss this opportunity to find out what lobster fishing is all about. You will also enjoy hearing some "fish tales" like none you've heard before. Just a delight.

We recently met Mark and Cody and had a great time. Our kids ages 7 and 9 were right into it and enjoyed holding the lobsters and crabs (despite their not being seafood lovers!). I would recommend this tour to all.

We went on the supper tour and it was a perfect way to spend the evening. I was expecting a boat ride and a meal, but got to find out about lobsters and the fishing industry too. I love it when learning is fun! Mark and Cody were the perfect hosts and are clearly passionate about what they do! I highly recommend Top Notch - the name says it all!
P.S. Go Oilers!
