We are so excited to have the opportunity to travel with you once again! Our guests are already looking forward to the wealth of knowledge you will bring to their expedition.
Our on-board program in 2022 will look a bit different than past years, but with a bit of creativity, we are confident that we can offer as exemplary a program as ever.
As always, we ask that you submit ideas and suggestions for programming you can offer that are engaging, educational, and regionally relevant to the trip. Please refer to the tentative sail plans in your expedition package for more information about our planned stops.
Adventure Canada's regenerative travel pillars are: climate action, environmental conservation, cultural revitalization, and community wellbeing. Wherever possible, please incorporate these themes into your educational interactions with guests.
Please use this form to submit at least one presentation idea, one workshop idea, and one idea for an outdoor experience you can offer. Additional space is also provided for you to offer further suggestions, if you wish. Due to our busy and unpredictable expeditionary schedules, we can't guarantee that you will be asked to present on each topic you suggest.
- Due to our precautionary COVID protocols, some lecture-style presentations may not be presented to the entire group at one time. You may be asked to deliver your presentation to a smaller group and/or to deliver the same presentation more than once to small groups.
- Please plan for your presentation to last 45 minutes, including time for questions from the audience. If your proposed presentation absolutely needs more time than this, please make note of this fact in your synopsis.

- Workshop offerings should be between 45-90 minutes in length.
- Please include information about any necessary materials or tools this workshop will require, and whether you will provide them or ask that we do.
- Please note approximately how many guests could attend at one time and what type of space you would require.
