Spent a great day out on the water with tour guide Simon exploring the Tusket Islands. The tour was informative, the sites were beautiful, the seafood chowder was delicious, and the story telling so good I could have listened to Simon talk all day. I highly recommend the tour for both tourists and locals.

An excellent tour, with knowledgeable guide, Simon. He explained some of the background of the shantys, the islands and lobster fishery. The day was perfect - clear skies, barely a wind and smooth ocean. Stopping on Big Tusket Island allowed us to see the shantys and enjoy a game of washers after lunch. The chowder was delicious and the music provided by Simon was familiar and beautifully presented. This is a great tour and a wonderful way to see the Islands. We will certainly bring all of our visitors out on this excursion. So very worth taking, locals and visitors alike!!

Excellent tour! Very well organized with highlights being the stories, the history, the chowder and the songs. We had a beautifully clear day to travel and all four in our group got "Bluenosed" even though we're locals. A must do if you are in the area. Bravo et Merci Simon.

This was a fabulous day on the water! We left port in a bit of fog, but before we landed on the island for lunch the sun had broken through, and it was heavenly. Simon is a great tour guide, cook, entertainer - the whole deal! We had a wonderful time, delicious chowder, learned about the area and lobster fishery, and would highly recommend this tour!
