Small-Ship Expedition

Atlantic Canada Explorer


Springtime on Canada’s east coast is a time of bloom and bounty. Explore Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Saint-Pierre—expedition style!

Warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream, Canada’s east coast comes alive in springtime.

Centuries of overlapping culture—Mi’kmaw, Acadian, English, Scottish, Irish, and French—have left their mark on the landscapes here.

With expedition stops in Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton, and Sable Island, every stop is a highlight!
