Our Commitment

Read a message from Adventure Canada's CEO, Cedar Swan.

Dear Adventurers,

I am overjoyed that after two long years, Adventure Canada is ready to begin a successful sailing season. 2022 marks our thirty-fifth anniversary as a company, and we are certain it will be one to remember!

SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) has tested the limits of the expedition travel industry and especially small, family-owned and operated companies like Adventure Canada. We so appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate the complex and ever-evolving scope of this pandemic.

Suffice to say, all of us here at Adventure Canada are excited to travel with you again. Your adventure has been a long time coming.

As the season approaches, we continue to fine-tune our COVID-19 Management Plan, working closely with our community partners, ship agents, port authorities, and transportation providers. Additionally, we continue to collaborate closely with Canadian, French, and Greenlandic health authorities across all levels of government.

I wish to take a moment to present some important reminders and reaffirm our basic commitments, which you can expect during your time sailing with us.

To board your charter flight or the Ocean Endeavour, you are required to complete a full course of a COVID-19 vaccination approved by the World Health Organization, Government of Canada, and European standards for France and Greenland. You can find more details about vaccination requirements here.

No matter how the pandemic’s landscape evolves over these next weeks and months, we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our guests and crew during your entire journey, beginning with this pre-travel communication and continuing throughout your embarkation, adventure, and safe return home.

I want to stress that we will preserve and respect the health and safety of the peoples and places we are privileged to visit by maintaining exceptional health standards to prevent the spread of COVID-19 into communities. We have long-standing relationships with our host communities and their health and wellbeing are of paramount importance to us. 

As we continue to develop our COVID-19 Management Plan, Adventure Canada will maintain the flexibility to adapt to new public health guidance, technologies, and mitigation strategies that can further reduce the risk of introduction and transmission of COVID-19 on board. You can feel confident that we will ensure you are updated on any relevant changes in health guidance and the strategies we’ll employ in response.

Soon the months before your voyage will narrow to weeks, then just days, right down to the moment you embark on the Ocean Endeavour. We know the opportunities to spot spectacular wildlife, feel connected to history and cultures, and learn more about the natural beauty of our world are what enticed you to take this journey in the first place—and they’re still what will make your travel experience so transformational this summer. We are thrilled to finally share in these dramatic and immersive landscapes with you.

Your adventure awaits!
