Lobster Season on PEI
There are two lobster seasons on PEI. The first runs from May til the end of June, and the second from August til October. But of course fresh lobster is available year round.
Be sure to look for our famous Island lobster year round on menus, in pounds and on wharves across PEI. Lobster landings peak in Prince Edward Island in the period from April to June when the spring season opens.
