My 10 year old daughter wanted to try the deep sea fishing so we went with Captain Jeff. The day was great, the Captain and his Matey dude were super friendly and really helpful (as we are not fishermen!). We managed to catch quite a few mackerel which was great! We also managed to see some seals. :) Absolutely great... More

Captain Jeff apparently went over how to put life jackets on but we could not hear a word. I had to ask where the jackets were kept. During the trip we spent a lot of time watching for the heads of seals popping out of the water. From the distance where we were they looked like tiny specks in the... More

We went out on a three hour trip with Captain Jeff and Kevin. We boarded the boat at North Lake Harbor. Getting on is a step off the dock to a piling, then from the piling to the side of the boat and then down to a step inside the boat and then onto the boat deck. Just be warned.... More

My family of 6 loved this experience! I called three weeks ahead of time as we had a specific day in mind. We were looking for the whale and seal watching when we were looking and didn't realize there was deep sea fishing included as well so that was an added bonus. We got to see quite a few seals,...

We decided at the last minute to take a tour to do some seal and whale watching. MacNeill's was recommended by the local tourist information center in Souris and they were right. We had a great time out fishing for mackerel. Didn't see any whales close up, but we did see seals and porpoises. The owner and staff are very... More

Our family of 6 chartered Capt. MacNeill's boat for a half a day tuna fishing, I really didn't know the sizes of Bluefin Tuna and only after my son caught one and fought with it for 42 minutes that I realized that these were actually giants of the sea. This is a catch and release fishing expedition and by the... More

Took a trip with Captain Jeff on a Saturday afternoon. First thing he did was go over the safety features and procedures, which is great when you're going out on the water. We had booked the trip to find some whales, as he had seen some earlier in the day, but unfortunately for us, all we saw of whales on... More
