Kids (and I) had great fun, seeing the coast, holding live lobster and driving the boat. Captain made the decision on our way out not to go to see the seals due to wind and rough sea conditions - I’m always grateful to have safety prioritized and he compensated us the difference between the price paid and their shorter excursion, which was very appreciated. Really fun, and would highly recommend!

Excellent tour. The boat was comfortable. The captain was friendly. We saw so many seals in the water! We learned about music and PEI culture. We got to hold a lobster pulled up from the trap. It was a delightful trip with great views.

Overall, a very disappointing tour. We did see seals and the lobster trap experience was informative. But there was a lack of commentary on Charleton, PEI and the area. Lots of dead time filled with silly chatter and guitar playing. Our Boat tours in Booth Bay and Bar Harbor were much more informative and interesting.

Hi Ron. Guess I'm Very disappointed you were disappointed. I have taken out thousands of very happy people. In response to lack of commentary on (Charteton) Charlottetown, they do have walking tours that provide that kind of info. I am a boat tour. Glad I did offer what I advertise Seals and Lobster trap haul. Sorry also that you find my family stories and PEI trivia silly and maybe my guitar and singing Silly. Many many enjoy what I do and as owner operator I try my hardest to make it the best tour I can provide. It is very hard to please all, all the time. At the end of all tours I do inform people that if there is something I can do to improve the tour please let me know when we get back to the dock. Thanks for your info, and for the tip your friend gave us. Capt. kenny

We went on the lobster tour as an occasion to see the island and to learn about lobsters.

The good: Captain is a performer. Gives important details about the island. Nice view of the surroundings. Get to see, and pick up, lobsters.

The bad: Boat is VERY rocky when it is not moving. You might get wet (but very slightly). Boat kept losing his flags.

This is definitely a recommendation if you wish to learn about the island and the lobster industry.

We had such a wonderful afternoon on the water. Our captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He provided a lot of interesting information about PEI, lobster fishing, the seals. Family members in our group thought it was the best activity of our trip to PEI. Very family friendly, highly recommend.

What an excellent experience. My wife and I went on the afternoon Seal Watch and Lobster Trap tour and it was a fantastic tour. Lots of good knowledge from the boat Captain (also the owner), and his first mate. Well thought out and planning was awesome! Loads of seals to see when we got to the site and we stopped for about 20 minutes to half an hour to watch them in the water. Afterwards we went to a lobster trap that he owns (educational license) and we got to watch the trap pulled from the water, and watched how the claws are banded after capture. He went on to explain how the different sizes of lobsters were sorted and which ones went for each purpose while we were able to hold the lobsters. The lobsters were released after the demo.

All-in-all, an awesome way to spend part of an afternoon. We would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Charlottetown, PEI.

My and I have been repeat customers with Captain Kenny since 2017. He’s a skilled mariner and also very knowledgeable about Charlottetown and PEI in general. Kenny is great with adults and kids alike including when he brings out his guitar for a song or two or explains how to set and pull a lobster trap. This tour has been a highlight of our trips to PEI and we’re looking forward to coming back again this year. I highly recommend Peake’s Wharf Boat Tours.
