“Amazing experience!!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

I'm about as big a lobster enthusiast as anyone interested enough to look up this tour right now, and I can guarantee that not only will you have a deliciously good time (if you choose the tour with the lobster dinner), you will also enjoy a very pleasantly educational experience that teaches you everything you've ever wondered about lobsters! This tour is #1 for a reason!

“A lot of fun!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

The lobster boat experience was one of the highlights of our trip. Mark and Cody were very friendly and shared a lot of interesting facts about lobsters and fishing in PEI. They come from a long line of fishermen and they clearly love what they do. We enjoyed a relaxing boat cruise and hearing all about lobsters. The dinner was also fantastic. Mark led us step by step as we cracked our lobster dinner. It was delicious. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Charlottetown, especially if you love learning new things in a friendly atmosphere.

“Fantastic excursion!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Our morning excursion was terrific! Mark and Cody were friendly, personable hosts who gave us lots of interesting information on the lobster industry, crabs and lobsters themselves, yet kept even the youngsters in our group interested and entertained! It was a fantastic experience well worth the price!

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Can't miss excursion. If you're visiting PEI this has to be on your must do list. Mark and Cody did an amazing job of educating you on the industry while making it a fun not to mention tasty experience. I always appreciate people that excel at what they do and these fellows get an A+++ from me.

“The reviews are true - Great excursion informative and fun!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We did the morning trip with no lobster supper since we intended to do our own lobster dinner that evening. Mark and Cody were great hosts informative and fun. We learned a lot about PEI lobster fishing and lobsters in general! Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a few hours on the water.
