If you are looking for something a little different I highly suggest you take this lobster tour. Capt Duffy and Dave did an outstanding job. If you have any interest in lobster fishing this is a must do tour.

Enjoyed the slow moving tour of the area. The Bush family compound; Grey Seals and Harbour Seals; lobsters; friendly knowledgeable captain and first mate. Low key - beautiful day activity great for kids.

We loved the tour. We were able to see the Bush compound, the sea lion island (seals were in the water as it was afternoon), a lobster boat where they were pulling up a trap and taking out lobsters, and of course our boat brought...More
