Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Appears small and wasn’t sure if cost was worth it but it was a very cool and educational experience. We had a personalized tour for four of us (w my kids 10, 13, 15) and we all learned a lot about the lobster lifecycle. Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and happy to answer our many questions.

    This was relatively easy to find. We were on our search for Parlee Beach and we seemed to run into controlled access points so continued on to the wharf. There was a small admission of $3 which was acceptable for a days access. it is a wharf with several businesses/restaurants and some parking at the end. A large Canada safety vessel is docked there with 2 large, fast inflatable boats on board. It was a well equipped boat. Many people fish from the dock and apparently they are looking to catch mackerel. We didn't have the chance to visit Captain Dan's Bar but would have liked to. You could see the start of Parlee Beach off to the east and in fact at low tide we saw people riding bikes on the sea floor. To the west you could see the town of Shediac. There are probably some great sunsets from this location.

    All in all it was an interesting place to visit and spen dome time.

    This is a cool waterfront to hang out, fish, grab an ice cream or something to eat or just check out the view. You can pay for a boat tour. There is ample parking and there's a small fee to enter. When we were there we saw what was likely area kids that seem to come just to enjoy jumping off the wharf. There is a restaurant and souvenir shops to check out.

    You can take the stairs up the lighthouse to an 'observation' level.

    TripAdvisor identifies two cruises in Pointe-du-Chene, NB: Croisieres Shediac Bay Cruises, the other Shediac Bay Cruises. Perhaps [Shediac Bay Cruises] is a lunch-included lobster harvesting educational cruise? Still, the education about the culture and customs of those who work the lobster harvesting industry is enlightening. This is grueling work, many long hours during the season, and maintenance of boats and lobster traps when the cruises don’t operate. Contemporary lobster traps are designed to auto-release undersized crustaceans. If mooring lines break and a mature lobster is in the trap, the door is engineered to disintegrate after a few days freeing the creature. The harvesters respect the lobsters and the sea, the source of their livelihoods. On the educational cruise, crew members earned my respect. I also tossed out a little humor: Why do the Québécois use only one egg to make an omelette? Because one egg is un œuf☺

    Since the cruise is at Pointe-du-Chene Wharf, I noticed an adjacent boat named “Pointe Taken” an obvious reference to Pointe-du-Chene, as indicated by the accompanying photo.
