Lobster Fishing Excursion

It is a short walk to the dock where the captain and crew of the Top Notch await your arrival. Board the boat and, once the lines have been cast, your course is set through Charlottetown Harbour to Northumberland Strait. The crew will explain the importance of lobster fishing to the island’s economy, and the conservation measures being used to protect the stock. See how GPS technology is used to guide fishermen to their traps and you’ll also have the opportunity to check out the bottom of the harbor using sonar. Upon arrival at the lobster traps, help haul up the catch, add fresh bait to the traps, and set them back in the water. If you like you can handle the lobsters. Your cruise passes by Port La Joye/Fort Amherst, the island’s oldest European settlement. Governor’s Island is home to many species of island wildlife—seals, gulls, great cormorant, common murre, ospreys, and bald eagles.

We decided on this tour at the last moment. The captain, Mark, owns his boat and started lobster fishing in his teens with his father. He is articulate, knowledgeable and friendly. His co-captain that day was his wife, Patty Lynne. We couldn't have had a more interesting and fun trip. And, as a bonus, they told us where to find a great lobster lunch!
