We booked the cod jigging tour, after loving the Tusket tour in the past. It didn't disappoint, with Lucien taking care of us every step of the way. The actual fishing was beyond enjoyable, as we could have easily filled our limit catching fish on every hook within minutes of dropping our lines. Lucien shared a respect of the oceans with us and we released beyond what we could eat. We had arranged a customized tour and were able to fill our memories with top notch experiences. Simone and Lucien again proved this operation is run with class and attention to detail. Thanks for another fun filled time, boys!

This boat cruise has it all: The guide Simon delivers interesting history of the Islands with a touch of humor, you get to watch the crew pull a real lobster trap, the seafood chowder lunch at a fishing shanty is absolutely delicious , and the cruise home involves live maritime music on deck, the captain wil even pour you a nip of Sailor Jerry's rum if you'd like.... How else would one want to spend 4 hours if in Nova Scotia !?

If you're in the Yarmouth area this tour is a must!

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!
