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 France.

    The colourful town of Saint-Pierre makes a charming beginning to our trip. Winding streets with shops, houses, and cafes bring a taste of Europe to the east coast of North America.

    Saint Pierre Vista
  • Day 2
    Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island

    Today we call in at the fishing village of Chéticamp, on the western shore of Cape Breton Island. A busy fishing harbour,
    rug-hooking museum, shops and restaurants offer a taste of Acadian heritage.

    Nearby Cape Breton Highlands National Park is world-renowned for scenery and wildlife. If weather permits, we’ll hike the spectacular Skyline Trail.

  • Day 3
    Historic Fortress of Louisbourg

    We'll visit the Fortress of Louisbourg complex on Cape Breton Island. Built by the French in 1720, the fortifications were captured by the British in 1745, later returned to the French, captured again in 1758 and then destroyed—a telling tale of early colonial rivalry jousting for power.

    Reconstructed in the 1960s and 1970s, the Fortress of Louisbourg is a National Historic Site, offering a 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 take an opportunity to observe the wildlife in this region.

    Humpback Whales
  • Day 5–7
    Bay of Fundy

    One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, the rugged coastline of the Bay of Fundy is famous for its world-record high tides and rich ecosystem.

    Our time on the bay will be spent on the lesser-visted Fundy Isles, an archipelago of twenty-five islands at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Many whale species frequenting this area live close to the water’s surface giving it the reputation of an aquarium without walls. We hope to spot the rare North Atlantic right whale as well as dolphins, porpoises, and seals. Above water we will enjoy the abundant birdlife with over 240 species of birds making the area home.

    We’ll also learn about the shared cross border history of the Fundy Isles, with Campobello Island being the most notable. It is here we find Roosevelt Campobello National Park—jointly run by Canada and the United States.

    Franklin D Roosevelt House Campobello Island
  • 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.

    The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, St. John’s Anglican Church, the Lunenburg Academy, and dozens of shops, cafes, and galleries line the hilly streets of this splendid harbour town.

    Lunenburg Waterfront Nova Scotia
  • 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 Ispwich Sparrow, a species of special concern, the largest grey seal colony in the world, and the world-famous Sable Island horses.

    Unique weather conditions prevail at Sable Island. We'll maximize opportunities to walk the dunes, cruise the shores and view the wildlife. We’ll also learn first-hand about Sable Island’s fascinating human history.

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

    The Gully is a Marine Protected Area where the sea floor plunges two and a half kilometres into a submarine valley. The Gully is one of the most prominent undersea features in eastern Canada. This is due to its significant coral communities, its diversity of both shallow and deep-water fish, and its many whales and dolphins.

    Join on board researchers as we navigate this ecologically significant waterway.

  • Day 12
    St. John’s, NL

    On the final day of our expedition, we sail back though the picturesque Narrows and into St. John’s harbour. We will say our farewells in North America's oldest city.
