Itinerary

Adventure Canada itineraries may be subject to change without notice due to weather, ice, and sea conditions

  • Day 1
    Saint-Pierre, FR

    Just off the shores of Newfoundland lie the islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon—an official territory of the French Republic. The colourful town of Saint-Pierre makes a charming beginning to our trip. Winding streets lined with shops, houses, and cafes bring a taste of Europe to the east coast of North America.

    You will arrive in Saint-Pierre from our charter flight, where you will be transferred to the Ocean Endeavour.

    Saint Pierre Vista
  • Day 2
    Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island

    Today we call in at Cape Breton Island—a fiercely independent region of the province of Nova Scotia. Our destination is the fishing village of Chéticamp. The busy harbour rug-hooking museum, local shops and restaurants offer a taste of Acadian heritage in a thoroughly bilingual town.

    Nearby Cape Breton Highlands National Park is world-renowned for scenery and wildlife. We’ll be hoping for favourable conditions to hike the magnificent Skyline Trail.

  • Day 3
    Historic Fortress of Louisbourg

    In the struggle between English, and French colonial powers for control of what is now Canada, the French Fortress of Louisbourg on Cape Breton Island played a pivotal role. Established in 1720, the fortifications were captured by the British in 1745, returned to the French, captured again in 1758 and then destroyed.

    Reconstructed in the 1960s and 1970s, the Fortress of Louisbourg is a National Historic Site, offering a fascinating glimpse into military colonial Canada.

  • Day 4
    South Nova Scotia

    Nova Scotia’s southwestern coast provides habitat for seabirds and marine mammals in abundance. We’ll be seeking opportune sea and weather conditions to observe the wildlife in this region.

    Humpback Whales
  • Day 5–7
    Bay of Fundy

    The rugged coastline of the Bay of Fundy is world-famous for its world-record high tides; here the waters of three rivers join the Fundy tides.

    Along the southeastern shore of the bay lie peninsulas, mountains, and picturesque inlets. It is also home to some of the highest tides in the world, and is famed for marine mammals and seabirds. The area borders Nova Scotia’s French shore, where Acadian influence is strong. The founding of Port-Royal in 1605 by the French and their Mi’kmaq allies, and the conquest of Acadia by England in 1713, the region was hotly contested.

    The Fundy Isles—Campobello, Grand Manan, and Deer Island—are an archipelago at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Their only land connection is via bridge to Lubec, Maine. Island residents can reach Canada without crossing the border only in summer— by two ferries.

    The islands feature historic sites, including a park jointly run by Canada and the US. Birdwatching, marine mammals, and scenery—as well as the famous Fundy tides—round out the attractions.

  • Day 8
    Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

    The port of Lunenburg once harboured a fleet of sailing vessels, including the famous Bluenose. Old Town Lunenburg was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. British colonial town plans ignored topography, making for several very steep streets.

    St. John’s Anglican Church, the Lunenburg Academy, the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, and dozens of shops, cafes, and galleries line the hilly streets of the splendid harbour town. We’ll spend the afternoon exploring its treasures!

  • Day 9–10
    Sable Island

    A sandbar as long as Manhattan—but only about a kilometre wide—Sable Island is home to many varieties of birds, including the endemic Ispwich sparrow, hundreds of grey seals, and the world-famous Sable Island horses.

    Unique weather conditions prevail at Sable Island. Our scheduled two days here allow us to maximize opportunities to explore the dunes, cruise the shores and view the wildlife. We’ll also learn firsthand about Sable Island’s fascinating human history.

    Sable Island Hourses Sand Dunes
  • Day 11
    At Sea: The Gully Marine Protected Area

    En route to Newfoundland, join our wildlife spotters on deck, watching for seabirds and marine mammals. We will be crossing The Gully, a Marine Protected Area where the sea floor suddenly drops a dizzying two and a half kilometres into a submarine valley. The Gully is one of the most prominent undersea features in eastern Canada and its unique ecology has attracted the interest of many agencies, such as Parks Canada and Environment Canada. This is due to its significant coral communities, its diversity of both shallow and deep-water fish, and its many whales and dolphins.

    Our resource staff, scientists, historians, musicians, and artists will continue to engage us with workshops, presentations and entertainment. We’ll be immersed in the spirit of the East Coast all the way to St. John’s!

  • Day 12
    St. John’s, NL

    Welcome to St. John’s—Newfoundland’s historic, vibrant capital. St. John’s has been continually fished since 1498, making it North America’s oldest European settlement. Architecture, shopping, night life and cultural attractions make St. John’s a sightseer’s delight.

    Make sure to be on deck as we sail through the Narrows to conclude our voyage by sea! We will say goodbye in the port of St. John’s, disembark the Ocean Endeavour, and head onward to our next journeys.
