The tuna fishing season in North Lake, PEI runs from July to October, wih most of the giant Bluefin being caught in the Northern part of PEI off North Lake.

    Deep Sea Fishing in PEI

    Many Maritimers and people from all over the world come to go deep sea fishing in PEI each year.

    Prince Edward Island is known for Anne of Green Gables, potatoes, lobsters, and bluefin tuna fishing. Hundreds of tourists visit the beautiful province of PEI every summer. One of the best ways to experience PEI is to deep sea fishing with an experienced tuna charter captain like David Sansom. David runs Tide & Time Tuna Charters, which sails out of North Lake PEI, the tuna capital of the world.

    Deep sea fishing is an experience that the whole family can enjoy. While on vacation head on up to the North Lake area of PEI to book a tuna charter. You won't be sorry!

    Most charter boats, like the Tide & Time tuna, use traditional “jig” fishing lines and heavier type fishing rods and reels to catch the tuna. You don't have to travel very far off shore to catch one of these Bluefins. Usualy two to three miles off shore is the tuna feeding grounds. So while it's called deep sea fishing, it's not like twenty miles out to sea. Most fishermen like to jig mackerel, cod or herring while on board, as they are waiting for the tuna to hit.

    Don't forget to take a camera as the sunsets are amazing and you may see many different types of seabirds, seas, and even whales in the Gulf of St Lawrence or Northumberland Strait areas off PEI.

    Life jackets are provided by the crew of the tuna boat so you don't have to worry about bring this or any other type of gear for that matter. Just bring a lunch and maybe your sunscreen. Nothing but sun and fun here in PEI.

    1000 Pound Tuna Caught in PEI

    This was an unforgettable experince catching a 1000 pound tuna off PEI last year. It took about 4 hours to catch this large bluefin tuna! The guys were exhausting landing this 1000 pound bluefin tuna on the tuna charter boat "Tide & Time" captained by David Sansom. It is an experience of a lifetime catching one of these beauties!


    At PEI Tuna Charters, David runs this private charter boat for several months of the year. You can simply book a deep sea tuna charter with David by emailing or phoning (902) 393-8690
