The Nature of Expedition Travel

Expedition travel is characterized by its dynamic, fluid nature and we pride ourselves on our unparalleled adaptability. Zodiacs are used to access the land for shore excursions. During shore excursions, we cater to different activity levels and break into small groups to focus on various areas of interest.

Natural Wonders at Every Turn

The Atlantic Maritime, Mixed-Wood Plains, and Boreal Shield ecozones play a crucial role in carbon storage and provide ideal conditions for thousands of thriving species. The waterways are home to an abundance of whales⁠, seals and thousands of seabirds. Atlantic Canada offers unique natural wonders at every turn!


Celebrate Maritime Culture

Warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream, Canada’s east coast comes alive in springtime. Delve into distinctive history, heritage, traditional music and cuisine of the Maritimes. Visit quaint fishing villages and indulge in some of the finest seafood in the world⁠ on an enlightening and tasteful adventure⁠—sprinkled by the sea!
