Short boat ride, great fiddling and even a little step dance lesson and we learned to play the spoons. Very entertaining and felt like a local experience. Was a lot of fun!

This tour was the highlight of our 4 day trip to PEI. This is a family operated business and it was obvious that they love what they do. JJ was so entertaining! He told stories, played the fiddle and explained everything he was doing with the lobsters. His wife, Julia, took care of our drinks and danced to the fiddle music. Their 9 year old son helped with everything and even drove the boat. We were one of 3 couples and all 6 of us loved this excursion. The lobster was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this tour, it was worth every penny!

JJ, Julie and their son were excellent hosts on our Lobster Lovers tour. There were 3 couples in our party and the tour had about 28 people on board. JJ is a natural entertainer and performer. He is talented, friendly, witty and engaging. He made the tour memorable! We felt like we were attending a private party on a friend's boat rather than an organized tour. JJ shared his experience as a lobster fisherman and a former professional fiddler. His stories were informative and entertaining. He involved his guests in the whole evening's experience. This is a real family operation. Julie is the organizer and communicated with us right up to the start of the tour. Their 9 year son was also very hands on throughout the evening, helping with the dinner service and wherever he was needed. As for the dinner, the 1.5 lb lobsters were DELICIOUS, cooked right on board in sea water. They were sooooo fresh. JJ also educated us on different aspects of the lobsters. We also lucked out with the weather. It was calm, beautiful and warm. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. Take a look at our sunset pictures. This tour may seem a bit expensive but it is worth EVERY penny! Thank you Chaissons for the best experience of our entire 2 week trip out east. We would HIGHLY recommend your tour to everyone!

This lobster supper with the Fiddlin Fisherman was the highlight of our PEI vacation. Very friendly personal service from JJ, his wife Julie and their son, very talented fiddling and the best lobster I have ever eaten, cooked right on the boat. The meal was complimented with homemade potato salad and coleslaw and buns, and really good cheese cake. A fun, relaxing and enjoyable evening.
