He is a 3rd generation lobsterman and loved his work fishing the same lobster ground as his dad and grandfather. Perry retired from fishing in 2012 turning all his energy to TCA.

Art is what we call a salt water cowboy, spending his spare time between T.C.A. and the local dairy farm. He spends most of his summer on the water doing what he loves ….fishing. Art has been fishing full and part time with me since 1995. He knows the hot spots and is the best fisher of Mackeral I’ve ever seen. Art is fully bilingual in English and French. Just a great guy.

I am very glad to have my Sister Cindy with Tranquility Cove Adventures, starting with us in 2023, she love on the water and is quite at home there even on the rougher days. Her skills to fish and clam will impress anyone and her ability to make you feel at home here is amazing, she just loves meeting people.

Spencer has been with us since 2022, lobster fishing in the spring gets him in great shape for the clam digs all summer long. Spencer has years of experience on the waters and is quite a story teller as well making for a very well rounded crew on Tranquility Cove Adventures.
