Our staff are rigorously trained and certified for their roles, and our ships’ crews have lifetimes of experience. We plan our routes in consultation with captain, crew, Expedition Leaders, and local guides for safe adventuring everywhere.
Making Cultural Connections
Everywhere we travel, we are privileged to work with the people who call the region home—not just on shore, but also aboard. Regional representatives are at the heart of our shipboard staff. Their culture, language, and local understanding of life and the land are woven into our programming, deepening the connections we form as we go.
Our Commitment to the ArtsLearn More about Our Commitment to the Arts
We have always believed that a fulsome appreciation of the places we visit must include the arts. Science is important to our knowledge of the world—but music, writing, painting, sculpture, poetry, dance, photography, and film deepen our feeling for the places, the people, and the journeys that so inspire us.
Supporting Science and ScholarshipLearn More about Supporting Science and Scholarship
We hire experts in a wide variety of fields as members of our expedition team; they offer their skills in presentations aboard, interpretation in the Zodiacs, and ashore. From climate science to botany, from wildlife biology to geography, geomorphology, and more, we learn as we go from the best in many fields.
Giving BackLearn More about Giving Back
Adventure Canada has always focused on giving back. We believe sustainable travel is part of securing a healthy economic outlook for the communities and regions we visit—but we also know we can do more. That’s why we established our Discovery Fund, to which every passenger contributes with the purchase of every trip.
