I had no idea what to expect when booking this tour, and if I were to do the cruise over again I would book fewer tours—but this is one I would keep. A very unique experience for Charlottetown! The owners are friendly and knowledgeable. This...More

I had a really lovely time on the boat, the people running it were lovely, the fresh homemade traditional food was amazing was just an all round lovely trip, especially with the sunset. I really enjoyed the music by Tiffany, really lovely people all round.
