Lobster Lovers

While people come from far and wide to experience a Prince Edward Island Lobster Supper, our take on the experience is unique, catering to those with a spirit of adventure, a quest for the extraordinary and a desire to know where their food comes from. Sail onboard ‘Chaisson A Dream’ with Captain and renowned multi-instrumentalist and entertainer J.J. Chaisson a.k.a. “The Fiddling Fisherman”. You, in fact, become part of the crew, hauling an authentic, government-approved PEI lobster trap up over the gunwales, exactly as we have done for generations during our spring fishery. By this time, a giant pot of seawater is boiling, awaiting the catch of the day. Before long, you are enjoying the freshest possible lobster dinner with all the fixings. Meanwhile, the Captain, a member of the Island’s most famous fiddling family, entertains you with traditional fiddle music and dancing. Drop anchor along PEI’s beautiful red cliff coastline and relax in a picture perfect setting. Get to know PEI music and fishing culture by booking an experience.

Top Notch Charters

3 Great George Street
Charlottetown, PE

Seasonal

Top Notch Charters

The journey aboard Top Notch begins at Peake’s Quay Marina in Charlottetown. Heading out into Charlottetown Harbour, Captain Mark and his children explain the importance of the lobster fishery to the Island economy, and the conservation measures being used to protect the stock. Passengers will see how GPS technology is used to guide fishers to their traps and they’ll also have the opportunity to check out the bottom of the harbour using sonar.

Once at the first lobster trap, passengers can help haul the catch from the water, and those who are brave enough will have the chance to hold a live lobster. After adding fresh bait, the trap will be put back in the water as Top Notch heads to the mouth of the harbour and into the Northumberland Strait, past Port La Joye/Fort Amherst, the Island’s oldest European settlement.

While lobster suppers are a “must do” on Prince Edward Island, nowhere will you find a more magnificent setting for fresh lobster dining than aboard Top Notch, anchored near the mouth of Charlottetown Harbour. Diners can choose to have their lobster served hot or try it cold, the way Islanders enjoy it. Meals include a 1-lb lobster, coleslaw, potato salad, a roll, and a non-alcoholic beverage. Wine and beer is also available as Top Notch is a liquor-licensed vessel.

Before arriving back at the wharf, Captain Mark welcomes the opportunity to pose with passengers for a photograph. Anyone who would like to have their photo taken with the Captain at the wheel is invited to.

Do You Know Lobster?

Whistling on the boat is considered bad luck.

True – Whistling Is Bad Luck

The origins of this superstition are lost in time, but whistling is generally considered to bring bad luck. Some people think that whistling bring stronger winds that can be hazardous to fishers and damage traps and equipment.
