We saw this trip on TV many years ago when the Regis and Kelly show was in Prince Edward Island. It is still the same Captain and he is a very personable and knowledeable Captain. It was intersting to see how lobstermen do their job. He pulled up several traps filled with lobsters, let guests hold one and explained the whole process. After a nice boat ride and seeing how lobsters are caught, he anchored the boat and served us a delicious lobster dinner. His first mate who assisted with the food was his daugher who also fishes with him. The experience was well worth the price.

Such a great experience with Captain Mark and his son Luke. It was definitely top notch! They are very informative about the lobster and crab fishing industry and the focus on conservation for the future is very impressive. We definitely recommend this tour if you are visiting PEI!

This was an excellent excursion. It exceeded our expectations which were already high. The crew was so friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning so much about crab, lobster and tuna fishing. The lobster dinner was exceptional. We had a really fun time! We are so glad we did it and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Interesting 2 hour trip out into Charlottetown harbor. Lots of information on fishing rules in PEI as well as information about lobster stock preservation. Captain Mark clearly cares deeply about his profession. Also got great views of the PEI from the water. Well worth it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon with Mark and daughter Sara. Very educational, interactive, relaxing and fun. Boat was safe and clean. Simple but delicious “island-style” cold lobster meal. Thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge with us!

Mark and family were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They were so great with kids, my 10 and 12 year old had an amazing time. My son, in particular, will be talking about this tour for months. No seasickness for any of us either. Thank you so much Mark!
