At a Glance

The Atlantic coast of Canada is home to a wealth of marine life, vibrant cultures and maritime history – and there’s no better way to discover this fascinating region than by expedition ship. On this voyage that begins and ends in St. John’s, Newfoundland, set sail to experience the best of Eastern Canada through Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy. Hike the Skyline Trail at Cape Breton National Park, and walk the historic fortified streets of Lunenberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend three days in the Bay of Fundy to learn about its record-breaking high tides and marine life, and explore Campobello, Grand Manaan and Deer islands. With seasoned naturalists and historians, get expert insight during wildlife sightings, and learn how Acadian and Mi’kmaq heritage has shaped the local culture.
Activity Level
Keep the Pace
Walking up to two miles per day over hilly, rocky, uneven terrain. Climbing stairs between decks on board as well as external gangway stairs to transfer between the ship and Zodiacs. Most embarkations and disembarkations will be via Zodiac, which require stepping up or down approximately 12 inches. Zodiac landings will generally entail disembarking onto rocky or gravelly beaches and in windy weather can make for rather splashy rides.
