The highlight of our trip to PEI was the evening cruise on the TOP NOTCH. Mark & Cody provided a wonderful entertaining and informative cruise. We not only enjoyed the scenic boat cruise but thoroughly enjoyed learning about the lobster/crab industry on the island. Very informative to see how these fisherman love their jobs and care about their industry and also love sharing their first hand experiences with us all. It was a great time for both young and old and we would recommend it to anyone visiting PEI. They are great ambassadors for both their industry and tourism in PEI. Thanks for a memorable cruise!!!

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!

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.

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!

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.
