On board ‘Chaisson A Dream’ with Captain and renowned multi-instrumentalist and entertainer J.J. Chaisson a.k.a. The Fiddling Fisherman; you will sail out of Souris harbour, drop anchor along PEI’s beautiful red cliff coastline, and relax in a picture perfect setting. It is here that you will enjoy a 2 hour gathering of music, dance, and hands on knowledge of traditional music and the fishing industry of Prince Edward Island. This is the most unique hands-on experience that PEI has to offer!

Very knowledgeable and friendly, we felt at home with JJ and his family while we toured the bay. Music and dinner were great, lobster cooked in fresh sea water. Good for all ages and great craft beer and wine for moms and dads.
