We were a group of 6, my brother in law Elroy suggested we go on this day trip and he was absolutely right! We had a wonderful time from start to finish. Jamie was the Captain and Simon was the tour guide. He told us the local history, a few stories, showed us a lobster trap demonstration and he sang on the way back! The chowder was top notch and they also had something for those who do not eat fish. You can also pack goodies for yourself if you wish but you'll miss out on first class chowder! It was a great day, thanks to all!

What an enjoyable time we had going to and coming from our tour of Tusket Islands. Though it was "tic-o-fog", it didn't deter from the amazing boat trip, captained by Lucien LeBlanc. Simon LeBlanc, our MC provided us with a wealth of history and information about the area and supplied toe tappin', hand clappin', musical entertainment.
Though intentions were to serve the seafood chowder outside that Simon had prepared that morning, the weatherman didn't want to cooperate so we all went inside the sea shanty to partake of this delicious delight along with crackers, fresh rolls and refreshments.
A very picturesque, fun filled experience that we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone who might be contemplating a boat tour.
If you plan to be in the Tusket/Wedgeport area during the summer you definitely must make a point of signing up for this tour.....guarantee you will not be disappointed!!

I went on the Tusket Island Boat Tour on my birthday.I am a handicapped person and I had no trouble at all getting on or off the boat.The tour was very informative on the way down and lots of fun on the way back.I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys being on the water as well as taking in the beauty that surrounds you.It really exceeded my expectations.

Although we are from this local area, and it was our first time on the tour, we had a very informative few hours with Lucien LeBlanc and his crew. We learned a lot on this tour, rich in local history, with the very friendly crew. Lucien owns the boat we were on, and fishes lobster from it for 6 months of the year. We had a simply perfect day, sunny, calm and warm! We had live music on the way home when Lucien whipped out his guitar and entertained us with his singing. The LeBlanc brothers are a very talented bunch! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone. Even locals! We had people from NB with us, who loved it as well, it was absolutely a great experience! Lots of fun!
