DogBoat is an intentionally small and fun business.


Life is too short to spend just on land. There is something about the water. We love it. We want to share that feeling with others. Dogboat is about showing visitors, locals, and anyone else who will come out, a side of PEI that very few see.

Come relax, play, learn, and enjoy PEI from the water.


The crew of DogBoat is a friends and family kind of setup. Dan James, the master of the boat, will always be your operator. Along with Dan you'll often find his better half,  Becky. Everyone who crews with DogBoat is familiar with the boat, the area, and of course all of the safety procedures.

2015 Bayliner XR7

Our boat, affectionately known as "Gilboat", is a Bayliner XR7. She is a 7.77m (25'6") fibreglass hull deck-boat built in 2015. She is built for people.

  • Fully enclosed marine head (toilet).... this isn't a big toilet but it does the trick in urgent situations :).
  • Sink & fresh water tap.
  • 4 big lounges (2 Forward, 2 astern)
  • 3 foot swim platform and a beautiful 4 step re-boarding ladder.
