Captain Spencer and his crew were absolutely wonderful! Its not everyday that my kids get to shake claws with a lobster!!!! Not only did they get to see the seals sunning on the rocks, they learned about fishing, mussels and even got to hold a live lobster that was pulled up from a trap! They offer complimentary water and juice, and fresh steamed mussels! On the way back, Captain Spencer let the kids on the boat take over his job and drive the boat! What a wonderful and educational experience for the entire family! Thank you Tightline Tours and Captain Spencer for this wonderful experience. We will be seeing you again next year!

We decided to book a sight seeing trip while we were on holidays in PEI. Spenser (The Captain) got back to me within a few hours of leaving a message and booked a custom trip around our schedule. We did the trip that involved eating freshly cooked mussels, seal watching and learning about the mussel fishery as well as the lobster industry in PEI.
My kids do not like mussels so Spenser assured me that he would have something for the kids to eat instead of mussels.
When we arrived at the harbour I was happy to find out we were on The Suncatcher. The boat is big, clean and looked like it was well maintained.
Spenser and his first mate were very friendly and informative the entire trip and was really good with our 3 kids. We all learned a lot about mussel farming, lobster fishing as well as tuna fishing and the history of fishing on PEI in general.
If you are looking for a way to kill 3 hours, see some seals and educate yourself about the fishing industry on PEI, then I would recommend Tightline Tours.
I plan on booking a tuna charter with them in the future as his personality and knowledge won over my business

The captain and his helper were very friendly. I am a commercial lobster fisherman from Nova Scotia and I still found the tour interesting. The information given about the lobster fishery was very much accurate, and I even learned a few things about lobsters I didn't know myself. I went partly for something to do and partly to ask a lot of questions about the local fishery for research purposes. The men were more than happy to answer any questions I had. We sailed out to mouth of the river from Montague and caught some mackerel. The fish were cleaned, split and bagged up for everyone. I took some home and BBQ-ed it in tin foil. Delicious! Much information was given about the local mussel farming industry, and a small lobster trap hauling demonstration was also given. The boat is fully certified and in pristine condition. An afternoon well spent. I don't have a single complaint.
