They don’t call him Captain Scott for nothing. If you want a genuine personal experience with insight into local life, read on!
We met Captain Scott through our Woods Canada counterparts while travelling across Canada. He went out of his way to not only give us an ultimate tuna experience but shared with us his love of PEI and key places to go visit locally.

Our first adventure with Scott included the opportunity to actually experience being members of his crew and spent a day shadowing and learning how to halibut fish. This was probably one of the most memorable experiences ever because not only did we get to see how and where our food comes from but we learned the value of how hard Captain Scott and Canadian fisherman work to ensure fresh and sustainable seafood.
Then on our next day with Captain Scott. The Big Tuna day. We spent the morning catching mackerel to bait the tuna and then we began searching for signs of tuna out in the open sea.
With Captains Scott’s sharp eye and quick instincts we soon found several areas where the Tuna were feasting. It took a few rounds of chasing and sighting the beasts but at 3pm we hauled in a 10 foot tuna with an estimated weight of 750lbs!
As a testament to his skill in this trade – out of all the other charters out on the water that day, Wild Tuna Charters was the only one that caught anything!
