“One of the best experiences in PEI, great for kids!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Had to decide between clamming experience and deep sea fishing, and my kids' hesitation on the length of the clam experience sealed the deal, but NO REGRETS!!! The deep-sea fishing tour, thanks to Perry, Art and Lucas, was exceptional!!!

Kids learned a lot about the various sea life thanks to Lucas' instruction, they got to steer the boat, and of course, they caught fish!!! Only regret was that we didn't have anywhere to take the fish we caught (had dinner res @ Georgetown Inn--also a great experience--right afterwards), so we didn't keep any--pictures will have to suffice!

If we ever get back to this corner of PEI, no doubt we will be signing up for one of their other tours--lobster or clamming!!

“No fish stories here! The trip was amazing!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Perry and his crew (Art and Lucas) made our deep-sea fishing trip an amazing (and relaxing!) adventure. They really made the effort to provide a memorable experience for us. We learned how they caught lobsters, crabs and mussels and everyone got a chance to hold their catches. Lucas took the time to explain how everything is done. It was such a great hands on experience - especially for the young kids we have.

The boat is really clean and they keep it that way throughout the ride. It is stocked with snacks (rice crispies and healthy granola bars), coffee and drinks (water and juice). The crew were really knowledgeable and experienced and took the time to just go through everything and anything regarding their expertise. They are amazing with young children.

The mackerel were plenty and we hauled in so many catches. Art showed us how to skin and gut a fish. I'm pretty sure he could do that in his sleep (he was so fast!). We got to take home what we wanted and they neatly put them in ziploc bags for the trip home.

THank you for the wonderful memories!

“Happy as a Clam”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I LOVE fresh seafood. What can be fresher than clams you harvest yourself and eat soon after? I also LOVE spending time on and in the water. Captain Perry Gotell's Tranquility Cove Adventures provides all that and more. Mate Art showed us how the clamming is done and how to prepare them for eating. Talk about fresh briny flavor, though a bit chewy. We learned some interesting facts about lobster and mussels from mate Lucais. The scenery is so beautiful in PEI and this comfortable boat showed us how lovely it is by sea. Plenty of room,snacks,beverages. I was afraid the water would be too cold for this Florida girl but the wetsuits helped and the fact that the gulf stream dips in and warms these waters so it is not as cold as Maine. I am so glad my friends that I was visiting took me on this adventure.

“What a Great Time!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Perry and his crew are great hosts for this very laid back and relaxing fishing trip. I am not a sportsman, but absolutely had a great time learning to fish for, and eat freshly dug clams. The ride to the spot is easy and the boat is spotless and well stocked with snacks, coffee and light drinks. Perry is a knowledgeable and experienced captain and fisher with many great stories and advise. Learning to fish for clams was easy and I hauled in about 8 keepers. By the way these clams are HUGE, not the steamers you get in the US, so COME HUNGRY! This is a fun day adventure and you can bet the next time I am on PEI I will do this again.

“A fantastic trip for kids, parents & grandparents”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

A spotlessly clean and handsome working lobster boat, lobster, crab & fish 'aplenty' and a Captain & crew who make every effort to make the trip a special one for any age. You could not ask for a better attraction or trip out on the water. Don't let this one pass you by; if you are on PEI, this is a 'must-do'.
Captain Perry is one of those very special people who are born to make others feel welcome, shares his knowledge and experience wonderfully and posesses an ability to make everyone laugh & smile. Highly recommended!
